My beautiful people,
Do you remember my peachy cocktail from this post? It was inspired by the fabulous styled shoot I had the opportunity to be a part of. Emily Allen from Cakewalk Bake Shop reached out to me and asked if I wanted to be involved. Of course I said yes! Emily and I met when she made the most adorable piñata cookies for the Los Vallejos wedding.
She sent out the list of vendors that were going to be involved and my jaw dropped from all the absolutely amazing and talented women that I would have the opportunity to work with. This list included… Lindsey Zamora of Lindsey Zamora Styling. She is literally the epitome of fabulous. From her studded tool belt to her uncanny eye for style, Lindsey is irreplaceable.
Not to mention, I’m still salivating over the breath-taking flowers. Maxine, of The Southern Table, is a floral goddess. From the flower wall to the sweet laughs she brought to the group, the day would not have been the same without her. (She says her outbursts come from being an only child. It’s precious).
My hair was out of this world. Rayven, owner of Beauty and the Blush, was possibly the cutest person I’ve ever met. She is ridiculously talented. I love that she dove into her dream job head first. You go girl!
Finally, the photography. I was already in bewilderment from seeing her blog and indulging in her images. But seeing her work and how she treats her fellow creatives was inspiring. Apryl Ann is an amazing woman.
All of these women were so inspiring. I am forever captivated by their determination and talent.
They told me to keep in the air conditioning because I needed to “stay pretty“, so I snapped a few shots inside.
You’ll have to excuse the iPhone photos. Obviously, they won’t do the true beauty of this shoot any justice. But you better believe I will let you know as soon as the actual pictures are up!
While I was inside “staying pretty“, I had the opportunity to meet a very sweet friend. One thing that I love about coming together with new people is watching relationships unfold. Lauren is an intelligent-long haired-free people model looking-horse loving lady that is just as beautiful on the inside as she is out. Her passion to take care of people and her love of cupcakes sparked an instant friendship between the two of us. Not to mention, she’s a total babe!
These women are wonderful. I hope I can one day inspire others the way they do.
There is always more to come.
