I have been looking forward to this lifestyle-meets-fashion shoot with Mercedes and Brutus for a while now, but was not excited to be greeted by the gloomiest, rainiest weather we've had in a long time.
We began the lifestyle shoot inside and around her fabulous home near Savannah, Georgia, which was decorated to the nine's with all things Christmas. But as soon as we realized the sun had come out and the rain had stopped, we hopped on the golf cart and headed down to the community dock.
The location couldn't have been more perfect. It reminded me of Mercedes' fabulous paintings of the marsh and clouds. Her paintings served as my inspiration for the second half of the shoot, which was all about location, color, and simple pleasures. Enjoy this sneak peek into the second half of our three-hour session.
