I am a creative director, creative consultant and a photo prop stylist specializing
in small hard-goods, flora and product.
I follow a design rule of old, new, older. My aesthetic leads with charm & clarity. It is layered yet uncomplicated, artful while warm & classically current. I embrace bold composition & color choices, & adore a hearty texture.
I currently have 15 years of multi-disciplinary creative experience. I studied photography and visual communications, and in 2007 after planning my own wedding I was inspired to start my own wedding photography business. My wedding photography has been published in BRIDES, The Knot , Seattle Bride & Style Me Pretty, along with many other notable online and print wedding publications including the book Just Married - How to Celebrate Your Wedding in Style, According to Fiona Leahy.
In 2014 I transitioned into event and wedding floral design, which quickly led to full event and wedding planning, coordination, design and styling. I created a second business, CJP&CO, and while I was involved primarily in wedding collaborations, I also was a floral design contributor for Cassandra LaValle, a Seattle-based interior styling studio. My wedding florals, design and wedding photoshoot editorial prop styling was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings multiple times, along with various local and international wedding blogs and magazines. I ran CJP&CO until poached by Sinclair & Moore, an acclaimed, international, luxury wedding design company where I was artistic director and lead floral designer.
In the summer of 2021 I gave birth to not only my daughter, but my current creative self. I am a creative consultant, which includes branding assistance, social media management, and more. I am a photo prop & interior stylist, with a studio space & shoppable showroom in SODO, Seattle called The Orange Door.
When it comes to my creative approach I lead with bold composition and timelessness. My aesthetic can be described as playful with a delicate, refined finish. I enjoy setting artful scenes that marry my background in photography and floral design. I am drawn to the nostalgia and charm of vintage and antiquitous elements, may that be through object, lighting, color choice, texture.
Seattle is my home, although I split my work and heart between Washington and New York. I spend my time enjoying art, volunteering, tending to our garden, traveling, thrifting and reading beachside here in West Seattle with my husband of 15 years, Nicholas, and our little daughter, Vivienne Franca.
