farm to table | styled

When I got asked to participate in this styled shoot at the Acre, I was BEYOND ecstatic. All of these emotions hit me – excitement, fear, joy, more excitement!!!

I’ve known Rachel Riley for a few years, but she has been the most encouraging human as I pursue this passion as a full-time business (and even when I was doing it as a student!!). She’s asked me to do a few projects for her that I’d never imagine doing for anybody. So for her to believe in me to take on a styled shoot was nothing short of an honor.

Who KNEW Abilene had such incredible vendors and beautiful humans. This shoot reminded me so deeply of why I love what I do. I can’t wait to shoot this venue again soon!
