I have been so busy lately I haven’t had much time this month for blog posts! I have been working non stop on fashion stories, look books, and personal projects and cannot wait to share with you all the creative things I have been doing in my studio! I am more than excited for the next couple of months. With the rise of warm weather and spring fashion you can expect to see some great changes coming your way from me. I’ve been doing some “spring cleaning,” if you will with my photography, portfolio, and even personal life. I’m going to begin focusing and gearing my photography down a new path and am excited to see what photographic creations I come up with. I am definitely ready to continue to move forward and kick everything into full gear! So be prepared for a lot of photos, publications, news (and blog posts!)
