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!
