Behind the Styled Shoot

One of the distinct pleasures of being a part of a creative culture is meeting some of the best, most passionate, talented creative professionals ever. Yesterday all of those talents came crashing together to create an AMAZING styled shoot to showcasing some beautiful dresses, killer floral/design and stunning hair and make up. Y'all I almost died. The whole shoot had this southwestern/bohemian vibe going on. Which was perfect because if we're being real honest here (which we totally are), I have a whole southwestern/bohemian side to me I don't show all that often so I was in heaven. All of this to say... I can't wait to share the real pictures with yalllllll so you can swoon with me over all the stunning details because trust me they are totally swoon worthy.

Dance Style

Soooo during stressful times in life having common dreams/nightmares is so normal--
Showing up to take a test naked? Normal
Disaster at your wedding? Normal
Having another dance team interrupt your officers duet performance and then tracking them down to yell at them? NOT NORMAL. 

We are in the throws of competition season. Yalllllll 10 years later I totally forgot what competition season entails-- Hairspray, high buns, sequin OH MY.  The learning curve is quite steep, but i'm surviving! I will be the first to admit that I was not the prima ballerina I wished I was, but I could hold my own-ish (A+ for effort right?!). Coaching however, is soooo my niche. 

Part of the fun is getting out with my girls and showing them a thing or two... and I insist on looking cute while I do it because DUH.
