This is my little space on the internet where I wear my heart on my sleeve, where I keep it real and above all, where I hope to encourage others. I share my life with you, not because I think I’m awesome, but because I believe that life is meant to be shared. And maybe, just maybe, God will use my story, experiences and randomness to encourage you in your life.

Chris+Lauren :: Desert Love Styled Shoot

I am THRILLED to share this session with all of you! It started off as a small idea that grew into a beautiful collaboration between friends and local vendors. There is something so fulfilling and exhilarating about working with other creatives to create something more beautiful than we could ever do on our own. Together, we were able to tell the story of love, beauty, and adventure in the Arizona desert. Check out the photos and video below!

Special thanks to all that made this shoot what it is:

Models: Chris + Lauren

Fashion Styling: Alex of AVE Styles

Flowers: Sarah’s Garden

Makeup: Ashley Nicole

Video: Ryan Blake Films
