I had the great pleasure of graduating among a very talented, ambitious, and driven class in 2015. I attended North Raleigh Christian Academy and our graduating class size was less than the average 500 you may see in Raleigh public schools, but I was blessed to know each of my classmates personally due to our small size. Even though most of us are still in college, we have started business and created our space in this world; and I am so incredibly proud of all them. One of my friends, Rachel, is studying fashion design at Appalachian State, my brother’s alma mater.
We collaborated some this summer with her styling some pieces from a boutique, Designed for Joy. If you want to see more of Rachel and her incredible work, check out her website: thatboutiquestyle.com

Featured in these beautifully styled outfits are some of my hats (most purchased on a whim in Europe), some of her own clothes and some loaned to her by a friend, and some beautiful accessories from Designed for Joy.
Here are some highlights from the session!
Rachel, I had so much fun working with you. I hope to do more shoots like this in the future!
