Love that this bride and groom did a first look. Its always since this allows the photographer more time to get those relaxed portrait images that you long for.

When this dad saw his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress brought tears to them both. It was such a sweet moment.

Now that I am finally settling down here in Spokane, WA I can get back to my Small Business Features! And I am telling you if you have a girl this one does not disappoint. Pitchoun Designs is oh so AMAZING I can not tell you enough. These leather hair accessories are spot on! You need to head on over to her site Pitchoun Designs and get some for your girls

:)

 

Tell me a little bit about yourself, who you are, what your company is:

My name is Lacey Obry and I am the mother of two sweet little girls, Léa (4) and Zoé (23 mo.) . I am a part-time stay at home mom with a love for crafting and gardening. I am the owner and designer of Pitchoun Designs, an accessories shop for your little ones. The name “Pitchoun” is a french term of endearment for “little ones”.

With Pitchoun Designs, I strives to make classic, minimalist accessories with a modern edge for your little ones. I want to create a style that does not get old, accessories that can grow with your child.

What happened in your life that helped your decision to actually create a small business?

In 2009, after being a hairstylist for some years, I moved from to New York to further pursue my career in hairstyling. I got a job working at one of the top hair salons in New York City where I met my husband shortly after moving. My husband who is French is also a hairstylist, so hair has always been a part of our life. Pitchoun Designs was launched in New York in 2013 after the birth of my second daughter. After taking a break from hairstyling to stay home with my girls, I decided to design and make hair accessories. Hair has always been inspiring to me and being the crafty person that I am, I needed to create and be creative while staying at home. It was hard for me to find accessories that were small and minimalist for my young girls. I decided to design and make my own accessories. I starting with cotton and linen fabrics and then moved onto leather fabrics to make my accessories. After request from friends and “friends of friends” I decided to start a business out of it.

Where do you find inspiration:

It’s so hard to sum it all up.. I pull inspiration from so many things. Fashion and hair is such a big part of my life. I try to keep up with what is going on in the current fashion world as well as pulling inspiration from the past. Living in New York completely opened my eyes to fashion and being married to a Frenchman, has opened my eyes to french culture which has also had an influence on my style.

What is your favorite part about your small business? 

My favorite part about my business is being able to CREATE. Having ideas in my head and being able to make them happen. Being able to do something you love and make a living from it is the best feeling.

What is the most exciting part about what you do?

One of the most exciting parts about what I do is the feedback. Hearing positive feedback and seeing my accessories on my customers via social media is so rewarding.  I get to see how people style my accessories and it helps me know my customers and what they like.

Thank you Lacey for sharing about your what you do and your amazing business. I am so in love with your hair accessories!

Working in downtown Los Angeles, California is always so inspiring. The light down there is like a painting bouncing off of all the different unique buildings. I was so excited to 2nd shoot with Karen Barens Photography again photographing a wedding with her. We started in Downtown Los Angeles, then headed to Artesia to Holy Family Catholic Church to photograph in such a majestic building for the ceremony.

This brides bouquet was stunning. I love white on white and when you have ranunculus in the mix it makes it so simple and modern. They really are my favorite flowers!

Being outside in an open field tall grass is my kind of family session. The Weber family was so fun to photograph. I mean who doesn’t love a smilie, piercing blue eyed 6 month old! I also love hearing back from my clients after they have seen their images. Kerri said,”thank you for the beautiful pictures! We truly love them and are very happy with them. You did a great job!” This truly makes my day and I am so happy for them.

Thank you Weber family for allowing me to capture your family at this fun stage of life. Your smilie, sweet little boy has captivated me.
