16 Apr Hitting The Boardwalk
Photo shoots are always some of the best times. See, we are a group of creative chicks, but we’re also a group of energizer bunnies who love to get their hands dirty!! At photo shoots we get to run around, play with the kiddos, review fits of different styles, make new outfit combinations, and just see all our hard work -from concept to fabrics, and now photos – come to life! It’s such a treat being able to design the clothes AND work the shoot. In a past life, I wasn’t allowed to help orchestrate photo shoots, even though we were shooting my designs. I always felt such a great disconnect between the designs and the photography, but that’s just not how Wildflowers works. We are a team here, from start to finish, and I LOVE THAT.
So when we began chatting about what sort of SPECIAL photo shoot we wanted to do for our Sunshine Search winner Callye, we couldn’t get THE BEACH out of our minds. The 4th release of Best Day Ever screams boardwalk fun, groovy Beach Boys tunes, and just pure SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER. From 6 different dresses, to 6 different swim suits, we’ve got so much cuteness coming your way!
We decided that sunny Seaside, Florida was the perfect location for our spunky Spring release! I was over the moon when Jen, Callye’s mama, was on board to fly to the beach rather than to Austin! It was funny because Jen was just down for whatever!! She’s totally my kind of girl. All she wanted was to meet the crew and see Callye ROCK a photo shoot (AND THAT SHE DID!).
I can still feel the excitement when I first met these ladies. Jen and Callye came downstairs and Jen and I couldn’t help but run full throttle at each other, ending in a huge dancing, laughing, kinda-crying, bear hug! It felt like I hadn’t seen this good friend of mine in SO long, even though it was actually the first time we were ever meeting! I couldn’t believe we got so lucky with this wonderful person and her darling, doll baby of a daughter! PLUS!!! We got a surprise guest, too! Jen’s mama Velma showed up for the fun, too, which made the whole experience extra special, if you ask me!
I want to tell you about all the fun from the shoot RIGHT NOW, but I gotta save some of my stories for later, don’t you think?! We’ve got almost 2 weeks until Spring 4 preview days start!! So if you haven’t planned a pop-up yet, you’re not going to want to miss this release!! It feels like the fireworks after a week long festival to me, basically the part everyone has been waiting for! Don’t miss out by not showing up! <3
