Cupcakes & Aprons

Earlier this year we were had the opportunity to participate in a fun photo shoot for 50th issue of Military Spouse Magazine.  Although I am not a military wife (I'm not married), I was thankful when photographer Athena Plichta of Athena Plichta Photography asked me if I wanted to participate in this project.  I believe in supporting those who protect our country and was thrilled when I heard their theme.  The concept for this shoot was 'Cupcakes & Aprons' and would featuring vintage 1950's themed dresses, cute hair styles and yummy desserts.  Our models for the shoot were real life military spouses Adria Libby & Amanda Ogletree - Air Force spouses, and Jessica Cortezpena - Navy spouse.  The girls did a great job transforming to a different decade with the help of outfits from Catherine's Closet, make-up by Corvette De La Cruz and hairstyling by Monae Johnson Watkins.  Propping and styling to turn the modern kitchen to a setting perfect Beaver Cleaver's mother was done by Karine France-Matsumoto of Seasons of Life Wedding & Event Planning.  

For the cupcakes we made our Yellow Butter Cupcakes with buttercream icing.  The cupcakes were decorated with a sweet and summery yellow, pink and white color scheme perfect for any tea party with your girlfriends.  Each cupcake was topped with gumpaste white daisies, yellow bows, and pink buttercream roses & begonias. 

You can pick up your copy of Military Spouse Magazine in bookstores, on base or military commissary exchanges.
These shots weren't published in the magazine but I still love them!  Thanks girls!
