Introducing: Past Projects - Ivy Wild

Truth time- I'm not the most consistent blogger. I'd love to post every week about everything I'm doing, learning, creating, etc, but it's just not the task that makes it's way to the top of my to-do list. That being said, I've been working on so many amazing projects recently with some fabulous people, and I want to share all that magic with y'all. SO, from now until I finally catch up, I'll be posting a #TBT project blog post, Past Projects, covering a recent (we'll be a bit loose with that term) project, shoot or campaign I've been working on!

This week, I'm kicking off this new series with a recap of my recent work for Ivy Wild, D.C.'s newest powerhouse in the clean beauty and skin care sphere. Some of these photos have made their way onto my social feeds or website galleries, but honestly, I just want to keep sharing them! I got connected with Rachel, the owner via (what else?!) Instagram and have had so much fun shooting their space and some gorgeous make-up looks. PLUS, as you may have seen, we partnered for a headshot marathon session in their space, which was a TOTAL blast. Basically, I love everything Rachel and her team are up to, and you should go check them out, like, yesterday.

Can you believe it's already JUNE?! How is this possible? Worries about time moving too fast aside, I have to say a big WOOHOO because I'm excited to be getting back to posting regular content here, on the blog! Kicking off a new monthly series today, where I'm rounding up the best advice, motivation and inspiration I've either been given personally, or seen while scrolling around the interwebs / Instagram. We all need a little push to keep going, especially in those moments when that entrepreneurial hustle can be overwhelming. ALSO, be sure to comment below and share the best piece of advice you received this month!

Recent Work : RUNGRL

I mean, come on. How dope do these ladies look?

So full disclosure, "Recent Work" is a bit of a stretch and I've been majorly absent from this blog. A goal of mine is to get back to highlighting work, happenings and general musings on this platform again, and what better way to kick back off than with this project! The amazing ladies behind RUNGRL, a recently launched organization aimed at highlighting, encouraging and supporting female runners of color, reached out in December 2017 for our first shoot (which was incredibly fun) and we followed up with a second shoot a few weeks later. 

We met down by The Wharf for this shoot, and even though it was freezing outside, they absolutely killed it. A HUGE congrats to these bad-asses for launching their platform last week, and for going out and bringing their vision to life.
