riverside, iowa fashion styled shoot

Kailee first approached me a few months ago about doing photography for a fashion shoot she was putting together. I was on board immediately, put it on my calendar, and, boom, the date snuck right up on me! We lucked out with a beautiful day right before another set of rainy storms. 

Sarah Nebel was so gracious in loaning us her studio to use to get ready and, even though I had to shoot at high noon, I found some lovely shaded areas around town.

Angela Miller out of Des Moines came to town to do all of the makeup. She is a genius. I’m telling you, these ladies looked amazing!!

Kailee Seward is from Kalona and, not only does she cut my hair, she is so amazing at formal updos! In fact, when she was still in school for cosmetology over 4 years ago, I hired her to do my wedding day hair. I’d hire her all over again. She’s brilliant.

Becca, you gorgeous doll…

I was SO excited about this floral necklace by Bobbie Peiffer of Cherry Blossom Boutique. She does AMAZING wedding florals and I love photographing her work!

Omg, Mishayla has the sweetest disposition. I told her I was going to adopt her as my baby sister.

Gah, she’s stunning!!!

Michaela has such a bubbly personality. I tried one shot of her serious and said, “You always smile, don’t you?” She just looks so much more natural when she’s smiling! Love this girl!

Thanks to everyone who was involved. Thank you, Becca, Becky, Mishayla, and Michaela. (Those names…boy, oh, boy it took me a while to get everyone straight.)
