I've become friends with some amazing people over the last year here in Austin. Two very special women I've become closely acquainted with agreed to let me photograph them last night after an enjoyable cocktail and conversation at East Side Showroom. Page and Rachael are fun, creative, curious, clever, and quirky – just how my favorite people tend to be.  Here is a taste of some of the gorgeous shots I was able to capture as they wear some of our favorite jewels from the East of the Sun showroom.

Much love,

Advertising for Change

Pantene has a new #ShineStrong campaign out, "Sorry, Not Sorry". I really like the concept of this campaign and their educational approach to the commercial. I love that they don't simply point out the problem, but provide a few real world examples on how to better respond in those types of situations. As a woman I find the commercial very relatable and I hope to implement some of the suggestions. I don't love the Sorry, Not Sorry tagline, for the simple fact that they are doing exactly what the campaign suggests to stop doing.
