A Stormy Shoot

Chic to Chic Blog | Maternity | Aubrey Hubbell Design | adesigncollection.com

It’s time for a little throwback Thursday. A few months back, I had the honor of doing a maternity shoot for my lovely friend and now Mama, Michelle. It was a stormy day, the clouds were rolling in and as I drove up north, it started to rain. But as we drove up to the place we planned to shoot, it stopped raining. As I clicked away the camera, the cloudy, gray atmosphere made the shoot. The barn and the brick, the tall grasses and the little bump turned into the most beautiful collection of photos. Michelle was the loveliest while pregnant and now I can’t wait to photograph her sweet bundle of joy, Theodor.

Every morning I wake up, my favorite place to go is to the window. Remember that window next to my favorite chair? That view does things to my heart. In fact all cities do that to me. The reflections of the rising sun off the skyscraper’s windows, driving into the city with the beautiful skyline on display and the lights – oh those lights. Walking through the city almost makes my legs wobble. Each city street has a look about it and those looks, they’re made up of details. And just the other day, I decided to capture a few.

Happy Monday, Friends!

The Fourth Picture Overload.

The days leading up to the Fourth of July and the weekend following were filled with family time and exploring our two favorite mountain towns. We spent a day in Vail and half a week in Breckenridge. These two little towns are my favorite. They are covered in character, unique shops and delicious places to eat. Our favorite places to grab a bite are in Vail – Up the Creek and in Breckenridge the family favorite is Downstairs at Eric’s. We always have so much fun every year celebrating the fourth in the mountains. I can’t wait to continue the tradition with our future babes. I sprinkled a few other pictures from before and after the mountains. Enjoy the picture overload!

I Scream! Ice Cream!

Aubrey Rachael Photography

A Design | Photo

Wow, what an experience. What you see there is my darling gal friend, Miss Noelle. Look how cute she is! It all started with a motion piece for class and the obsession with pretty ice cream cones. Then Noelle popped in my head to cast as my ‘lil model. We decided I’d pick her up at Starbucks and go on over to a little local Ice Cream shop. And then it happened –  the most beautiful, dreamy and completely adorable transformation occurred, my camera came to life. That ice cream cone with the cherry on top, the polka dot dress and the little lady created THIS. Oh how I can’t wait to edit the motion portion! Hope you enjoy this little sneak peek and grab an ice cream cone while you’re at it!

Happy Wednesday Night, Friends!
