I can't even tell you how good it felt to shoot with Ashley again! Ashley has become one of my really good friends here in Arizona, and I met her through blogging. She was one of the first photographers I worked with to elevate my imagery, and I honestly think we were meant to be friends. We are so similar in personalities, and she has become my blonde twin. Even though I don't get to see Ashley as much as I want due to her photography schedule I am beyond proud of her, and how much she grown her photography business.
The concept of this shoot was actually inspired by this dress. When looking through the Bella Lily insta story I saw a video of this dress, and there is not enough heart eye emojis in the world that can describe how much I love this dress. I took a screen shot of this dress, and immediately sent it to Ashley.
Jess: Hey when you have some time to do something fun I saw this dress on the BL insta, and I died! I need to model it before anyone else does!
Ash: Yes!!!!!! Flowers pronto!!
Jess: I'll message Brenda (BL owner), and see if she will let us take her for a spin
Ash: Very Valentines Day
I love that I have created a tribe of friends that are just as down to do something fun and creative as me.
