Birthstones and Blooms

I am a lucky woman for many reasons, and one of the things I'm most thankful for recently is the amazing group of #bossbabes that I am fortunate enough to know. I know a ton of fierce, business-owning, hustling women (and a few fellas!) that are kicking ass and and making really, really beautiful things. Carly of Two Spoons Photography and I expressed our desire to play with photo shoots, concepts, and design more in the new year. Styled shoots are an amazing way to flex creative muscle, but require lots of planning and energy. Though there is definitely a time and place for styled shoots, (which I love to do!) we both had the desire to create smaller shoots and really be able to play with interesting details. I love things that border on pretty/weird, so Carly and I decided to run with that.

Birthstones and Blooms was born to give us an opportunity to really play with these things. Using birthstones and birth month flowers as our inspiration, we are creating 12 small shoots in 2015 to showcase things that are interesting and unexpected. We've teamed up with Marita and Brandon of Slingin' Pretty for amazing hair and makeup for the concepts we're dreaming up.

Below are a few little sneak peeks of our shoot yesterday. I'm so excited to share more soon!
