Winter Warmth // A send off to 2013

As the days sped closer and closer to the New Year, we couldn’t help but find ourselves contemplating the year past.  Jen and I have had such a build up as we entered our second year as L’avenir. With changes abound in our personal and professional lives, each day we become ever grateful for the creative outlet we have in this brand and this blog.l'avenir_holiday-113

Before I made my move to Seattle, Jen, Garrett and I were shooting some holiday style shots for the website. As our last shot of the day we had Lydia in a fabulous Lilly Ann coat from Via’s Vintage and a few of our latest accessories. As it usually happens we get a some our favorite shots of the day towards the end, these are the photos when your collective vision shines through and it just seems to get beautiful.

It almost feels kismet, having the pleasure of shooting in Jen’s new salon space {The Salon at Get Lazed} with her on hair and makeup as usual. Using pieces from Via’s, our first Minneapolis location and by far our biggest supporter through the beginning of this brand. Working with Garrett who has come so far with us, since some of our first shots together, and never ceases to impress us with his eye. We also welcomed back the beautiful Lydia Mae, who wowed us this spring. The day was such a good wrap up to a fantastic year together, we thank you kindly for following us through it all, and we are ever hopeful for what 2014 has in store for us.

Happy New Year!

Joan & Jen
