Obsessed: Heather Rome!
Heather Rome is a children's fashion and prop stylist and all around magic-maker. She's done work for many magazines and fabulous companies. I can't remember how I first discovered her work, but I was hooked right away. It was one of those "oh. yes." moments where you just think: "this person gets it. whatever it is." What I love most about Heather's work is that she captures the carefree whimsey that children have seemingly built into their souls. That all humans do, really, but most of us forget about. The sense of fun that says "Who cares if my skirt matches the pants underneath it, I've got an adventure to worry about!"
This is dorky, but sometimes I feel like the real me is actually a child, and my home is this place where everyone behaves a little like children do. We don't really need to know each other's names or how old we are or what we're wearing or where we're going because we know that none of those things are important and we're just happy to be together. When I see Heather's work it kind of feels like she understands that place. Maybe that's weird. :o)
So cheers to Heather Rome! A master of her art. See more of her work here.
And now go enjoy your weekend!! We're partying like animals (birds, specifically, kind of an aerial theme) tomorrow for Paige's friend's birthday. 'Can't wait!
You enjoy your weekend too, Disney! It is half over here in Oz.ReplyDelete
Thank you! :)Delete
Thank you SO much for sharing! The pictures are very lovely and inspiring indeed. ~xxx~ Love,ReplyDelete
Wow. This makes me sad that people are taking children and teaching them to pose like little adults. Let them be children. We force them to grow up too quickly already, is it so necessary that we teach them to lay on a bed and look at us with sultry faces at the age of what, 9? Apparently if you throw confetti on the bed it keeps it carefree and whimsical.ReplyDelete
Haha, what?? Sultry face, where do you see that? I fear you might suffer from a "glass is half empty" perspective. That's no way to go through life, my friend! ;)Delete
I loooove Heather Rome! She "liked" a photo of mine on Instagram once and I ALMOST DIED.ReplyDelete
You get the best "anonymous" comments, ha! What?! These are gorgeous, going to find more about her work now - thanks for recommending her! :) Happy Sunday!ReplyDelete
Haha I know, and I've been getting them a lot more lately! Not sure what that's about. Poor Anonymous :( they must have a lot of sadness in their lives.Delete
HA! Oh Disney! You are the best! Your response to the anonymous mad my day... probably my WEEK! I never ever know how to respond and that is so dead on. Give me a break! This is gorgeous and my girls would DIE of excitement if I let them have confetti in bed. Her work is GORGEOUS and I think the author of the pin board "My Imaginary Well Dressed Toddler Daughter" would have a field day!ReplyDelete
Also I don't know how many times I have stopped in my tracks looking at Milk Magazine or Babykins because a picture just slayed me and 9 out of 10 times it is Heather's.ReplyDelete
Amazing pictures and inspirational too. I must this blog makes my whole day wonderful. Thanks for sharing this post.ReplyDelete

Sure hope so! (from Leslie, not anonymous)ReplyDelete
