Gorgeous "Ophelia" Styled Shoot

It's been a few months since I have had a moment to blog! This summer was BUSY but fantastic. Now, time to tell you about some of the beautiful projects Ive been participating in.

November is always the time of year where I slow down and have time to reflect on the busy summer and how to change or grow my business. Last year I realized I was so focused on making money and filling my time with worry....I stopped doing creative work. That was probably the hardest thing I have ever done to myself, I made my passion into a job. Which is exactly what I didn't want to do!

For someone like myself with a background in art and design, my creative work plays a very important role in my self care (aka keeping me sane). It is a time for me to stretch myself, try new things (without consequence), heck - just even using shoots as an excuse to meet new people! 

I started to work with Amy Catherine Photography a while back on some commercial work with another client - Poplin Style Direction (Blog Post about that awesomeness soon) and we discussed some styled shoots. Naturally, I jumped on the opportunity to do this and am thrilled that I did. Because this transformation is the stuff dreams are made of. 

Before: As you can see, we added extensions and lashes (gotta have those lashes). If you're interested - The products I used on our model are listed below!
