As an artist I try to find inspiration anywhere and everywhere. As a photographer who runs her own small business I try to take the time and shoot strictly for myself here and there between work and life as a Mami of 3. To get my creative juices flowing again and to hopefully inspire others along the way. Which is why I do styled shoots. I absolutely love them! May they be fashion or wedding related. They are so much fun. They allow me to work with other like-minded and extremely talented vendors as well as create something fresh and vibrant.
We put a ton of time, love and yes money into these styled shoots. And to have it picked up and featured on a popular blog is something I personally wish for but it’s not something that is always a guaranteed given. Personally I follow many wonderful blogs and have my dream list of where I would absolutely love to be featured on. So when I contacted Kate, the editor of Magnolia Rouge, I was sitting with a thumping heart and shaking legs as I hit the send button on my submission. As Magnolia Rouge is one of those on my dream sheet. When I received a reply in my inbox from Kate I was almost too afraid to open and read it. But then, when I did, I jumped out of my seat and did a little dance. I’m sure if the kids or my hubby would have been in the room with me they would have claimed I had lost my mind. I
may have definitely squealed a little bit too. She loved the images I sent to her and decided to feature them on their blog. Eeeeek! So today I am thrilled to show you some of these beautiful images I have been sitting on for months. (In order to get an exclusive feature they have to be kept “top secret” so to say.)
Be sure to check out the feature over on Magnolia Rouge here.
Thank you so so much to an amazing team of talented people who helped make this styled shoot such a success!
