Stella M'Lia 2017 December

It has been my honor to work with some of the best local businesses in Fairfield County. One of my favorites is Stella M'Lia, a tween- and teen-centric brand of special occasion dresses based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Stella M'Lia dresses are absolutely gorgeous. They're high-quality fashionable designer pieces that any girl would love to wear.. and it was such a pleasure to photograph five incredible young girls doing just that (some are professional models, while others have never modeled before).

Our models Kate, Laetitia, Lavinia, Olivia, and Aislinn were AMAZING and did a fantastic job in front of the camera. These photoshoots are always challenging because there are several dress sets to photograph, and we needed to make sure each dress looks good without taking up too much time. There are individual shots and group shots to capture, with beautiful styling provided by Stella, and Kate's mom was helping out as well. Most of the dresses we photographed are under wraps for now and not available commercially just yet.. but I'm thrilled to be able to share a few of my favorites, showcasing styles that are available right now (photos below).

And if you have a chance to see these dresses in person, they are absolutely stunning. The fabrics and the designs make me want to be a teen again, so I could actually wear one of them! And I'm not a girly-girl by any stretch.. but a beautiful Stella M'Lia dress is easy to fall in love with!

If you're local to the area, Stella M'Lia dresses can be tried on and purchased at Ella & Henry children's clothing store, located at 137 Elm Street in New Canaan, CT. Otherwise, all the designs are available to view and buy on Stella M'Lia's website here:
