Happy Monday! After a busy weekend of engagement sessions, we may need a lot of tea or coffee to keep us movin’ (anyone else there with us?), but we’re so excited to share another styled shoot that we did down in Florida!
Last summer, we were super excited to meet Rachel Klaeger after our good friend and fabulous (favorite) newborn photographer Kimmy Howard introduced us via Facebook! Kimmy had just been down south over the summer to teach at a workshop, and Rachel’s adorable little family happened to be the models for a shoot that Kimmy did on the beach. When Kimmy found out that we wanted to do a styled shoot while we were in Florida, she knew just the person to connect us with. Rachel is a stylist & designer down in South Walton, and as soon as we told her we wanted to do a styled shoot and collaborate with local artists, she was all in! When we “officially” met her (in person) the night before the shoot, she welcomed us with wine, and we talked together for hours, not only about our dreams for the shoot the next day, but also our BHAGS (big, hairy, audacious goals). Something we’re learning is that it’s so important to have other creatives in your life to spur you on, to inspire, to keep that spark ignited, and that energy alive. We could tell from the moment we met her, that she’s a go-getter. One of those people who knows what she wants and chases it with all her might. Rachel is also just so sweet and easy to connect with; I’d say she’s the definition of Southern Hospitality! (: It was so much fun to be apart of such a beautiful collaboration of work. Rachel’s parents have a beautiful southern home on a conservancy, which we were honored to shoot at, and we had some super adorable models as well! (;
