Fashion Friday Featuring Kenley Collins

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring the incredible Kenley Collins.

Kenley Collins love of fashion started at the young age of 16 when she would reconstruct vintage pieces for herself and her friends to wear. Then after graduating from Florida State University with a marketing degree, Kenley moved on to New York and started working in a sales position at a clothing company. Well less than a year later Kenley was promoted to a position in design where she continued her craft and developed her own fashion niche.

It wasn’t long before the rest of the world to take notice of Kenley’s distinctive vintage inspired pieces and fall in love with her talent. Ms Collins has appeared on Bravo’s Project Runway, Lifetime’s Project Runway Allstars,  Live with Regis and Kelly, The Biography Channel, and E’s Oscar 2011 pre-show. Kenley’s pieces are sold throughout various boutiques, available on her site kenleycollins.com, and can quite often be seen on pop music sensation Ariana Grande. If that isn’t enough to entice you to check her clothes out let the following masses of pictures do so. I was having way too much fun during this shoot 😉

Flower Clip: Claires

Gentlemen Prefer Dress: Kenley Collins This piece is literally everything I look for in a dress. Beautiful print, versatility of wear, and incredible construction! The royal blue stenciling is absolutely out of this world, believe it or not its even more beautiful in person!The fact that this dress is made out of a slight stretch cotton means its casual enough for everyday wear, but the obvious beauty of it means you won’t have to try hard to dress it up for an elegant evening out, and the construction is positively flawless, there is a bit of boning in the bodice that keep’s the lines of this dress very clean, and the size chart is so spot on! All of the attention to detail make this dress feel custom-made, which is what every woman wants, right? If you’re currently looking for the perfect spring/summer dress I cannot recommend The Gentlemen Prefer Dress highly enough.

Shoes: DSW I wear these shoes so much I think I should invest in different colors 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Kenley Collins out! She is such a true talent, her eye for detail makes her pieces timeless but her playful sense of style makes all of her designs seem new and fresh! Oh and speaking of new be sure to keep tabs on this lady cause her new line drops May 1st, so exciting! I love you guys Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday With My Twin

Today’s fashion post will be co-staring my beautiful fabulous “twin”. She and I have been best friends for about 13 years, I’m not sure when exactly when we started calling each other twins but we haven’t stopped, and let me tell you the looks we get when we tell people we’re twins is always priceless. As you’ll be able to tell from the pictures we clearly like to be silly. Hope you guys have as much fun viewing the pictures as we had taking them.

Impromptu Photoshoot!

I thought I might share some pictures of an impromptu photoshoot I did not so long ago. The impromptu shoot was mostly fueled by the desire to play with some rented lenses…I am now officially saving up to buy myself an EF 85mm f/1.8 USM, because whilst photographing my “not so official” official model for my photography business I couldn’t get over how great this lens is. Of course my model is fantastic and makes my job a lot easier 😉

Can you believe this is a candid shot? She was talking when I took this photo! I never look this good candid, I normally look like I’m about to sneeze or something. She is ridiculously beautiful!

Love those freckles!

Seriously how pretty is she!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and that you all have a very Happy Monday!!!

Bri’s Senior Portraits

So this has been a long time coming, please forgive me, but you all must know how crazy the holiday season is…I’m thinking about celebrating Christmas next month not even joking! So I finally am posting some of my favorites from Bri’s senior portrait session. Happy Friday!

Isn’t she just gorgeous?

I love this shot!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! TGIF

 

You’ve got a friend in me!

 During labor day weekend I had the great pleasure of having my dearest oldest friend Jordan stay with me and do a photo shoot for her. She and I have been friends for about 10 years, which may not sound like a lot, but she has been there for half my life, so it’s a lot to me. We been through it all together, from barbies to college, we have been inseparable. We’re so close that we would call ourselves twins (really confuses most people and really amuses us).  So needless to say I love her and I am greatly blessed to have a friend in her. Here are some of the pictures, more to come at a later date 🙂

I know I am more than a little biased, but my goodness she is one fantastic model!!!
