Outer Banks Winter Workshop | Styled Shoot


Well, the snow is steadily falling outside of my window here in Fredericksburg, VA…and it seems relentless!! We have about 5 inches of fluffy snow on the ground already, and I can’t wait to see how much we get total!! But, I’m also getting really excited for the spring + warmer temps! That’s why, on this cold afternoon, I decided to blog a gorgeous, spring-inspired styled shoot from the Outer Banks Winter Workshop with Amanda Hedgepeth! In December, I had the opportunity to travel to OBX and spend a weekend with some amazing creatives + business women for this wonderful workshop! I had an absolute BLAST relaxing, learning, growing + sharing my dreams alongside such fabulous ladies!

The styled shoot portion of the workshop was absolutely AMAZING, and the bright colors could not have come at a better time! Kat of Dear Sweetheart Events did an amazing job styling the shoot, as usual (LOVE that girl!) and I’m so excited to share it with you all! With beautiful shades of aqua, pink, orange + yellow paired with one oh-so-gorgeous model, it was one for the books!
