I'm so ecstatic to say... We've been published in Smitten Magazine Lifestyle Issue with 12 fabulous pages!
We had an amazing team that made this shoot come together. You know what they say, 'Team work makes the dream work.'
This was one of my favorite shoots. I really wanted to do something that wasn't so bridal, pink and flowery. Although I find those things amazing in their own way. I was looking to venture into something different and more editorial. So this is where our Native Love shoot was born. I am forever grateful to Shannon & Jenna from Busy Bee for understanding my vision and putting it all together and Kathy from Kathy Thomas Photography for capturing it so beautifully.
Of course we had a lot of talented vendors that helped to put this together. Check them out!
