Some of you may not know this, but I (Kelley) am a huge fashion enthusiast. I’m not talking high-end runway fashion (although that stuff can be super fun to follow). Nope, the kind of fashion I’m referring to is everyday style. I love the idea of mixing and matching colors, patterns, and textures to create new and unique outfits that not only look good, but also work, function, and fit into everyday life.
In fact, I love this idea so much, that I blog about it occasionally.
That being said, you can bet your buns I was excited when we heard that Paige was interesting in booking a photo session to help kickstart her up and coming fashion blog! It seems Paige and I have a common love for mixing and matching to create new looks, and Paige enjoys helping others do so as well. So she’s started her very own blog to share this passion of hers with the world.
I can easily say, without a doubt, that this is one blog that I’ll be reading on a regular basis. Just check out this little lady’s outfits and try not to confess how in love with them you are. It’s not possible!
In fact, I tried… And I failed.
We went through 17 different outfits on the day of Paige’s shoot, and each time she came out with a new one on, I had to comment on how cute it was/ask her where she bought everything/try not to steal her accessories right off of her.
It got to the point where we had to apologize to Josh and promise not to talk for a minute so that we could take a few photos!
More often than not, when Josh and I book a portrait session, people are our focus. Whether they be family members, friends, fiancés, or spouses, we’re usually using our cameras to capture their emotions and tell the stories of where they are in their lives at the moment.
In order to tell the story of this part of Paige’s journey, we needed to switch gears and focus on something new: Her outfits. Honestly, because I’ve been creating fashion posts for a while, and Josh has so graciously been my fashion photographer (thanks Josh), this is something we’ve been practicing for quite some time now.
We spent most of our time focusing on Paige’s clothing and accessories, but, when you’ve got somebody as beautiful at Paige in front of your lens, it’s impossible not to focus on the woman behind the fashion choices now and then.
Thanks so much for letting us help you start this fun new part of your life Paige! Know that I’ll be stalking your blog constantly. Oh, and if there ever comes a time where I’m forced to swap closets with someone, I’ll be knocking on your door for sure!
