Why this Photo Shoot with Luisa's Secret is My Favorite
The recent photoshoot with Luisa’s Secret has been one of my favorite ones to date! Not only was I able to see my vision come to life, but I was lucky enough to experience the endless, upbeat energy between Luisa and Douglas that inspired the models to take such beautiful photos. There are so many amazing things that came together to make this shoot happen!!
For one, working with Luisa and Douglas was a dream! I had been Instagram stalking them for awhile and decided to reach out to them randomly. I was so excited when they said yes! They are so captivating to watch while they work. They each have their own camera and they move around individually, yet together as if in an unspoken choreographed dance. They are both beautiful people, inside and out, just building their dream career and helping lift up people like me in the process. Oh! And they brought their own glitter!!
The models are actually fellow Alpha Xi Delta sisters from Texas Tech. While in college, I was reluctant to rush a sorority, but I went through the process because I believe in trying everything at least once. Little did I know that I would be making a lifelong relationship with thousands and thousands of AXiDs across the nation! It is so fun having my sorority sisters be a part of this journey and I love hearing them daydream over their “real wedding” one day.
The day before this shoot, I was attending the Swoon Event at Jefferson Tower. My booth was next to Katie Bug Florals who designs absolutely stunning arrangements. She was headed out of town and was going to throw out her flowers from the show. Oh, the tragedy! I asked if I could take them for my photoshoot, and she said yes! I love when things just come together naturally.
Finally, the story behind the venue. When I started planning my first photo shoot a year ago, I had no clue where to go. So I reached out to my high school alumni office to see if I could use their studio space (I went to an artsy school). They referred me to some fellow high school alumnae that are Dallas photographers and have a studio for rent. That’s why you’ll often see me shooting at the Lumen Room.
So many personal connections made this shoot happen and I am overjoyed with the outcome. It’s amazing that I can grow my own business while still supporting the local community. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about my favorite shoot! Be sure to check out all of the vendors that made it possible.
