Showers of Blessings

We are honored to salute and support our cherished friends and preferred charitable partner, Operation Shower! 

The Huestudio + Company celebrates their amazing 10-year success to ease the stress of deployment by hosting joyful baby showers for military families across the country.

Operation Shower’s baby shower events provide expectant military families with high quality products for their babies while recognizing their extraordinary sacrifices and personal efforts for all that they do for our country.

These delightful events are a unique and special opportunity for military families to come together and celebrate! 

After all, the military moms who hold it all together at home deserve a party and special recognition.

In celebration of their 10th Anniversary, delight in learning more about Operation Shower!

  1. Operation Shower is in the business of JOY! 
  2. We are based in St. Louis, Missouri.
  3. We started as a passion project in the basement of LeAnn Morrissey’s home in 2007 and have now hosted over 100 military showers + honored over 5,000 military moms!
  4. We are a proud Homefront Group of The PGA TOUR’s Birdies for the Brave® + supported by PGA TOUR professionals Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan.
  5. We believe that love really is in the details. 
  6. We know that there isn’t a day that can’t be made better by giving back to others.
  7. We were incredibly honored to have former First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden reach out to host an event as a part of their Joining Forces initiative. *Bonus: We were invited again by Mrs. Obama’s office to host a shower in Italy with the First Lady while she was visiting a base in Vincenza! 
  8. Our signature item is our “Shower in a Box” which Operation Shower provides to every military mom-to-be so that they receive a full baby shower’s worth of gifts at their shower – packaged especially for them! 
  9. Our goal is to let every one of our military moms know that we see them, we appreciate them and we celebrate them!
  10. We may be biased, but we think we have the most talented and loving volunteers and supporters on the planet + feel so honored to work with many great designers…like the team at The Huestudio + Company!

To show your support of military families all over the country, please consider a sponsorship in the form of cash, products, service donations and corporate sponsorships.

Celebrate with some happy moms in this special video + learn more about Operation Shower and all the good it does!

Happy 10th Anniversary to our precious friends at Operation Shower! Congratulations!

beyond pictures | Weddings by Revealed Studios

April continues to blossom with the extraordinary artistry of Revealed Studios: Boutique Wedding Photography and Boudoir Photography Studio.

As a trusted Preferred Partner of The Huestudio + Company for many years, their images and photographs are beyond pictures, and we are honored to spotlight their talents with Ten Things to Know as we Celebrate a Decade throughout 2018.

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” 

– Dorothea Lange

Revealed Studios provides artistic, storytelling wedding photography and fine art boudoir photography. We like to think we help our brides and grooms sleep a little better leading up to The Day.

Just like we would (and have!) for our own friends, we think of ourselves as a resource for more than just photography. You can come to us for everything from organizing a timeline, to making the day flow smoothly, to scouting out the best locations for display-worthy pictures.

We intentionally take only take a handful of weddings each year. Keeping things small gives us more room for creativity and leaves us more accessible to you.

We’re all about the art and the story.

Whether it’s a tight frame showing a gentle touch or an intimate distance capturing an emotion, our images take you back in time. We love the pretty and the styled, the amusing and the quirky, the tender and the poignant. We value taste, and work for our angles without being intrusive.

We crave good light and study it with awe. We search for compositions that show relationships and settings that evoke a feeling. In short, we create frame worthy images that transport you back in time. 

Ten Things to Know About Revealed Studios

  1. A collaboration of two best friends. Kelly and Maggie have been friends for over a decade. Self-described “feelers,” they are in love with all things that make our hearts pitter-patter – a great book, twinkly lights, and genuine human connection. 
  2. We’re a perfect balance. According to the Meyers-Briggs test, our two personality types are an ideal match for working together. Kelly (INFP) is the logistics queen with a unique eye and killer taste. She keeps Maggie (ENFP), who can gravitate toward vision of grandeur, in check, but also knows when she’s in the flow. Together we’re a balance that works – making a day on the job something we always look forward to. 
  3. Our Studio was once a milk delivery depot – the R. F. Clark dairy from 1890 through the 1920s. You can see the original carriage house door hanging inside the now converted space. 
  4. Mission based: we’re all about helping our boudoir clients feel as great as they’ll look. 
  5. Maggie was first introduced to photography by her Dad, a wedding and portrait photographer. She learned on a film camera and developed prints in her home darkroom. 
  6. Wide range of boudoir clientele: We’ve worked women in their 70s, plus-size women, sexual assault victims, women with breast cancer, women with !disabilities, and women with self doubt. We are champions of ALL women.
  7. We talk about missing our clients all the time. We always talk about wanting standing happy hour dates so we can see them on the regular. 
  8. Wedding photography has taken us as far south as Argentina and west as Palm Dessert, California. 
  9. We can’t resist a good Motown tune. When “Shout” comes on during a reception, you’ll find us dancing right along with our clients. 
  10. Only a handful of weddings. We intentionally limit the amount of weddings we take each year to maintain high standards of client care and imagery.
