Working in the PNW was a dream come true. Doing what I love in my hometown makes traveling home so much better. I would love to travel the world to collaborate with creatives. Seeing my designs being captured by talented photographers with beautiful floral pieces in amazing locations is pretty magical, I must say. I was able to connect with a Tider from the Tacoma Tuesdays Together chapter. Big thanks to Rylea, from Bow and Arrows Photography, who helped make our styled shoot happen. She's an amazing photographer from California and relocated to beautiful Washington.
Being on vacation made this shoot a little harder to plan. From hanging out with family to sewing up these designs, it was great to have everything fall into place. I wanted to do something special with my family. It had the best time working with my little sister. Seeing my 17-year-old sister model for the first time, made me have butterflies. She really did an amazing job. I wish the rest of my family was at the shoot. It would have been great bonding time. My grandmother and mother helped me every step of the way with pattern making, sewing, and fitting. It was fun to see them in action. My grandmother's sewing studio was filled with a bunch of industrial sewing machines and it made me excited to move back and work with her. I learned so many new tricks working with both of them.
On another note, the weather was definitely on our side! It was raining all day before and the day of the shoot . I checked the weather app that morning to see what the day would look like. The weather gods gave us sunshine and a handful of wind. I'm so happy, because this shoot wouldn't have been this successful if it were indoor.
