Happy June 1st All! I am so thrilled to share these photos with you today. Before I go on...I have to send a HUGE shoutout to Lauren of Bubb's Bow-tique! Thank you for working with me, chatting with me via email and sending me the best spring/summer bows any gal could ask for!
I had never done a photo shoot before. I had never styled a photo shoot before. But before I knew it, my mind was spinning with fun ideas. My friend Kayt offered to take my #bowsontheblog photos in New Hampshire and I couldn't have asked for a better natural background. I had everything planned out, packed up and ready...and for some reason Mother Nature stepped in and yelled a big "NO" at me and my picnic party photo shoot that I had planned. She gave us warmth, sunshine, clear skies and WIND! A wind so strong that my whole picnic would have blown far far away!
In the end, the photos came out so amazing, I was like "what picnic party?!" I enjoyed every minute of this experience. I stepped out of my comfort zone and learned a lot about myself. I had the support of a helpful and fantastic gal who took all of these photos. I (We) laughed and cursed the wind a million times. My hair got stuck to my lips (lipgloss) every other second and the photos still rocked! I couldn't have asked for a better first step into the collaboration / photoshoot world of blogging!
