Nicole and I first met this past winter. Between our love of weddings and pretty details, we immediately clicked and decided to work on a project together. She was starting an event design/planning business and I had always wanted to put together a style shoot. She needed to build a portfolio and I needed someone to put together the details of a shoot. BOOM! We were a match made in heaven. 🙂
“Blush & Blueberry” was born with Nicole’s inspiration from the West Virginia summer sunsets. Blues and pinks often fill the mountain-y skies of our state and Nicole knew of a “pink barn” in the area. When combined, they made a lovely presentation for our first style shoot project. As plans progressed, I knew I wanted to share the loveliness with others and continue my joy of teaching, so we decided to make it a photography workshop-type event as well. The spots filled up quickly and before we knew it, we had ten photographers joining us for the event.
I was so excited and honored to be part of this style shoot. I finally was able to help put one together and I was able to leap into the “photography workshop world” gradually with a two-hour teaching opportunity. I loved meeting new photographers and hanging out with friends. This is definitely something that Nicole and I both want to do again and we’re hoping to make something happen this fall. But for now, please enjoy the loveliness that is “Blush & Blueberry”…
Each attendee was welcome to take a treat bag from Nicole and a notebook and pencil from myself. Just some little goodies to say “thanks!”
Pink champagne was part of the style shoot, too. 🙂
Here it is, the grand “pink barn” that Nicole thankfully discovered recently! It made a more-than-perfect backdrop for the style shoot…
There’s my mom! Definitely the most experienced photographer in the bunch with over 20 years under her belt!
My friend Allison…she isn’t a photographer pursuing a business. She’s a mama with a nice camera who wants to learn to take better pictures…and who wanted a change from the normal running toddler subjects. 🙂
The florals were purchased and arranged by Nicole, too! She sort of does it all!
How yummy do the blueberries look!?!?
Outfit change for Cara!
This is the only picture I have of Nicole in action…wish I would have gotten more!
Some final shots as the sun slipped away…
And here’s the group…minus one who wasn’t able to attend because of a flat tire and minus another who had to leave early. Thank you ladies for coming to our style shoot and trusting Nicole and I with our design and photography skills. It was so nice meeting all of you! I hope you learned a ton and will consider coming to one of our future events. 🙂
And thank you Nicole! This all would not have been possible without you! I think you are going to ROCK in your business and I cannot wait until it officially launches. Thanks a million for all the details and all your hard work. I cannot wait for our next project, friend. 🙂
