It happened! I prepped for this special day for many many weeks. From searching for the right aesthetic, creating all the styles to be sold and deciding who would best portray my pieces, I was tossing and turning thinking about how these all would come to life. Above all else, the struggle I found was picking the perfect photographer. With a brother and a father and even my best friend's mom being a photographer, you would think the decision would be a no-brainer! But no, of course I don't know how to make these things easy on myself! I wanted to find a woman photographer who would see my pieces through a unique, modern and simplistic lens. I knew I wanted a woman specifically because I didn't want my girls to be sexualized in any sense of the word. Of course I know that is still possible to happen, but I wanted a woman who saw the beauty in the confidence exuding out of the pieces and could portray them in the most perfect light for me and my vision.
So that is how I stumbled upon Chelsea Clayton. If you don't know about her, you should. Her work is phenomenal. I can't thank her enough for bringing my vision to life. We were able to do the shoot in her own loft in Winston Salem, NC. With the modern aesthetic down, the perfect lighting dancing around the room, and the hottest of models in all of NC (I may be a little biased), the shoot was like a dream for me.
All the shots you see on the site are from that magical evening, but I can just never get enough of them, so sometimes I just like to reminisce. :)
