An oldie but "never before seen goodie" from Melanie Duerkopp Photography
I know! It's been awhile right?! I missed you too! Maternity leave has been one of the most amazing times of my life. There really is nothing more special than getting to bond with your baby. I mean, she will NEVER be this little again. It has been such a pleasure to watch her grow and change and start to develop this darling personality. Ok, I'll stop gushing. She's still a baby, and I'm still human and sometimes there are hard days. But all in all, I will sum it up with this. Gosh, do I love her.
There have been some big changes going on around here. For starters, Head Over Heels with Melanie is no longer going to be strictly specializing in weddings. Throughout the past several years, I have been styling women from all different walks of life. New moms, entrepreneurs, actresses, single ladies ready to mingle etc... And what I have found is I LOVE TO WORK WITH ALL Y'ALL. So why limit myself? Since making this decision, I have had several amazing clients with all different needs and challenges. It's been a blast. So it's time to make it official on the website.
Another big change is that I'm going to be blogging regularly again. That's right! Watch out 2014! Melanie is back and better than ever! There will be several new features. I will also be focusing on giving you quick and affordable tips to get ready and feel great. As a new mom, you have to be quick and efficient, but you also want to feel confident in a new body. So I will certainly be sharing my new found tricks to making that happen! I've also been collaborating with some amazing women on lots of really fun posts. So I hope to see you often! Let's start spreading the HOH love! Tweet, Pin, IG, or scream it from the rooftops! Do what you gotta do to make it heard! I'm back baby!!!
** Quick note about the above photo. I still totally love my coral statement necklace from Stella and Dot. It always pairs so well with my J Crew heels. I go to my amazing Stella and Dot stylist Kara whenever I'm in need of something bright, colorful and a little glam. That lady knows her way around a statement necklace and an arm party. Ya know what I mean jelly bean?
**There are going to be lots of new images on the website soon. But I thought it would be nice to share an old photo that I always liked that was never used. Three cheers for Melanie D., a little Boston Terrier and a mint colored belt! Woot Woot!
