Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Yes it has to be the longest church name known to man, BUT I believe in it and I am so grateful to be a part of The Church. It has brought endless blessing to myself and my family. I served a 1.5 year mission for The Church, where I devoted my entire time to helping other learn about Christ and His church.
One of my favorite companies to photograph for is DoTERRA. I LOVE working with them for a lot of reasons, but I think the biggest reason is the people I work with and their skills. I started working for DoTERRA a LONG time ago and I got the gig because of my best friend Emily. She was working in their marketing department at the time doing all the social media for DoTERRA. She hired me to take photos for their social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Since then I’ve taken a lot of photos for them, mostly for DoTERRA Canada. Emily still works for DoTERRA but as a contracted employee. She mostly works from home now and goes into the office periodically. She has such a first for styling shots. That’s why I love doing these. Emily is able to utilize her design talents and I on the other hand get to truly use my photography skill. It’s such a joy to work with such an amazing company like DoTERRA!!!
I’m bringing Christmas back for just a minute here. I loved this session so much and I would be super sad not to show the world it! Plus who doesn’t love and want a little more Christmas in their life, especially when it has Design Loves Detail involved.
If you were to ask me where is my favorite place to buy girls bows, I would quickly say, Princess and the Penny. I seriously can’t get over how adorable the bows are and the price. For a mom to the cutest little girl I obviously want her to look cute and not be mistaken for a boy. A sure way to ensure these two items to be covered on a daily basis of Kate’s life, it’s bows. Jessica from Princess and the Penny offers such a wide variety of bows. I’ve actually been surprised by her ability to notice trend and popular colors and then convert that trend into adorable bows! I’m truly impressed with that aspect.
I’m also impressed by the quality of her bows. They seem to last a long time for me, even when Kate chews on them. I don’t know what it is about different fabric textures that gets Kate to put them in her mouth. Thankfully Kate is really good about not putting small objects in her mouth that traditionally shouldn’t be in a baby’s mouth. BUT when it comes to fabrics like blankets, shirts, BOWS etc., sure enough you will find it in her mouth. She kind of nutty like that. ;)
