people who inspired me


I'm craving something different today.

So instead of posting something about a recent session, or a story about my husband and puppy, I think I'll showcase a few people who inspire me on a daily basis. 


To be better. 
To live better. 
To work harder. 



I met Kylie while attending MTH in North Carolina this past March. We became friends instantly and I have so many wonderful memories of our short time together (sharing three cabs driven by this crazy rad lady named Deb, and my first southern meal of biscuits and dumplings!).

On day one when I asked Kylie what she did, she said, 

"I'm thinking about starting a vintage rentals company."

And you better believe a huge smile came across my face when someone asked her that same question on day three and I heard her answer, 

"I am starting a vintage rentals company!"

Since that day she has made leaps and bounds and inspires me DAILY with updates on new pieces in her collection, new styled shoots in her portfolio, and honest blog posts about making her dreams come true. Check this girl out, you'll just love her. 


PLUS, she has the most amazing instagram...


NEXT UP...

I heard about Rhiannon Nicole through the grapevine, but only really dove into her site when I stumbled across her instagram account

I have yet to meet this lovely lady, but she's working on some stuff with Kylie and I'm so excited to see what comes of it!

And because sometimes when you put your dreams out there, they come true...I'm going to admit that my next ambition is to collaborate with Hey Gorgeous Events!


Her instagram is bursting with gorgeous photos of floral arrangements, amazing outfits, and fun sneak peeks into her current projects. I am OBSESSED. 


My next inspiration comes from Emily Ley. She designs beautiful products and dedicates her business to helping her clients do more of the stuff that matters. 

I adore her, and after seeing her speak at MTH, I fell in love with her shop. 


I really need one of these prints for the office...


My sweet friend Hilary has crafted a beautiful space on the internet for her blog, fittingly called be sweet

I love her style, her writing, and her general outlook on life. 


Last but CERTAINLY not least...this one's local!

You might remember The Sugar Post from those photos of the sneak peek opening that I blogged a little while back. 

Natalie is helping me out with a current project and I've been bursting with inspiration ever since I visited her shop and started looking at her pieces. 

I simply cannot wait to show off what we're working on!!


I love checking the new arrivals section of the website. Her craftiness and sense of style makes me so happy!


I am so excited that June 22nd is ALMOST HERE! My clients-turned-friends, Brittany and Brent, and are getting married tomorrow and it's going to be beautiful. 

Getting all jacked up on inspiration is part of my wedding prep process, and that's exactly how I feel after featuring some of the work by the ladies from this blog post. 

If you know someone who fills your inspiration tank, 
please share!!
