Young America : A Shoot With Casey Cluff

I'm so excited to share Casey's amazing photography. Since we bought our Model A, I have been dying to use it in photos. I wanted them to be true to the style of the car and something that would look authentic if turned black & white. I knew Casey would be able to make it happen, and I am in love with how everything turned out! Casey Cluff is a local Utah photographer... who also happens to be my brother and Mia's husband!  He is finishing up his bachelor's in Strategic Communications at the University of Utah in Salt Lake, while living here in Utah County. He does family, fashion, and event photography. He is working on a website to launch in the near future, but for now you can contact him for a shoot through his email, Casetenallen@gmail.com, or you can reach him at (562)-599-9423. You can also check out his instagram @wolffmeng !

DIY: Driftwood Dreamcatchers

Our favorite way to decorate our homes is by creating handmade gewds. So, we've had this pile of driftwood that we brought back from our Lake Powell family vacation last summer, sitting around for over a year. We decided to finally put it to good use and turn it into something pretty. These dreamcatchers not only add a light and whimsical feel to our homes, but also have a little extra meaning. 
Need: 
Driftwood
Twine & String
Feathers
Lace
& Imagination

How To:
These dreamcatchers were super easy to make. We just used the twine to hold the driftwood pieces together by spiraling the twine up one piece of wood and then wrapping it around like a figure-eight a few times with the other piece, so it was a thick enough layer to hold the wood together and then finished it off with a knot. We did this with each corner of the triangle. Then for the middle, we just got creative and weaved whatever design we thought would look cool with a thinner piece of twine or string. To finish this magical creation, we just tied random pieces of lace and ribbon and feathers to the base of the triangle.
