A big congratulations to our good friend Elizabeth Messina on her new book The Luminous Portrait.  A beautiful guide to shooting lush, romantic portraits exclusively in natural light. Whether you’re photographing children, weddings, maternity, boudoir, or portraits of any kind, The Luminous Portrait will inspire you. Learn Elizabeth's personal approach on capturing flattering portraits that appear “lit from within.”  A must have for any photographer or lover of beautiful images.
Of course a celebration was held in honor of The Luminous Portrait launch. Hosted by the queen of parties Mindy Weiss, who put together one heck of a soiree. Filled with vintage decor from our favorite vintage curator Jeni of Found Rentals. Good food and delicious desserts from Cupcakes Couture of Manhattan Beach. Both just so happen to be part of our Hand Picked Collection. Nothing but the best for Elizabeth and all photographed beautifully by Kirsten Ellis.
