It’s been nearly six years, but I still remember the day Seattle Met first asked me to style a shoot for their magazine. I was blown away that they were interested in featuring me, and I was proud to have my work printed in a magazine; such a dream come true. I was excited (and really nervous) to prepare that fall inspired shoot- I hardly even slept the night before. But, I nailed it (at least I think I did…) and then anxiously waited for the issue to hit the stands. It was such a sweet feeling of victory and success seeing my published work. That was my first magazine photo shoot, and it was a really big deal to me.Over the years, I have been blessed with more opportunities to contribute to other publications, including national features in Brides, The Knot, and Martha Stewart. Although I am so thankful for those opportunities to have national exposure, there still is nothing quite like getting called by the ladies of Seattle Met when they ask if I want to contribute to the next issue.Seattle Met started their publication around the same time I started my business. We were new together. When other publications wouldn’t even give me the time of day, Seattle Met took me under their wings and provided opportunity upon opportunity to contribute to their pages. The exposure they gave me grew my business by leaps and bounds and they directly played a part in our success today.Although I no longer get as nervous and anxious for a shoot as I did that first time, I still get just as excited to collaborate with Seattle Met, and I impatiently wait for the new issue to hit the stands. Being featured with them is an honor and will always be a big deal.
Make sure to pick up their current issue to see our French inspired shoot, and check back on our blog later this week for more images of the details of this shoot.
