Custom Stock Photography • Hair Designs by Dee •

It's one thing to sell a service, but to be able to market YOUR style and your type of service is no easy task. Which is why the Curl Connoisseur herself called me for another photo shoot for her hair salon, Hair Designs by Dee. This salon is filled with talented ladies, all who specialize in curly hair, so we needed a photo shoot to help them market those cuts, colors, and curly cuteness!

These are the custom stock images that we created from that shoot. You can see how she's used them to promote her business and brand on her Instagram page. One thing I worked hard to do is to keep these photos feeling approachable and personal. Dee and her team know her clients very well and put a lot of time and focus into their hair. I wanted photos to reflect that, and to not be "high fashion" or over-styled. I think her brand is beautifully reflected and I'm excited to see how she rocks these stock images for her business!

Lifestyle Brand Session • Alex Reagon •

You guys... Can we talk about how much fun lifestyle brand sessions are? They're such a great way to bring a business and a brand to life. 

Alex Reagon (who I adore in every possible way) came to me for a brand shoot for her new business and I was prettttyyy excited because I think this chick is definitely going places. Her new business as a social media strategist was made so that she can help other small businesses with their social media presence, and take some work off their plate. Which means we needed photos that were warm, welcoming, and trusting for future clients (along with those classic stock detail images that look so good on websites).

So taking over a small corner in one of our favorite coffee shops (the Blend & Co., obviously), we set that brand tone, and told that story. Want to see how she's used some of the images, as well as check out what she's doing? Visit her website here!

Bonus shout out and outpouring of emoji hearts to Lindsey Wilkerson of Face Forward for doing Alex's makeup and making her look EXTRA fabulous.

Wedding at The Cotton Room | Lindsay + James

Cue all of the feelings, because Lindsay and James wedding at The Cotton Room back in March was a tearfest. There were tears as Lindsey got in her dress, tears when she did a first look with her dad and brother, tears during the first look with her groom, tears during the ceremony.... it goes on. Packets of tissues were consumed that day, without a doubt. The closeness of these families, and the genuine, beautiful, deep connection between James & Lindsay was more than evident, and it made for a wonderfully special day.

Lindsay & James... guys, I can't even. You two are incredible, and I have loved every second of getting to know you! Many well wishes on your marriage, forever & ever & ever!!
