A few months ago, I read a post by Kailey for help on a local mom's page. Her photographer had essentially had bailed on her just before a big project roll out and she was up against a very tight deadline. She needed a location, photographer, and even models to help with her project and although others responded, it was a God lead intervention that had lead her to respond to me.
Unfamiliar with her product, I immediately went on her website (dapperdarling.com) and was amazed at the beautiful, personal items she sells which are silhouette portraiture jewelry and home goods. I was in love.
We spoke on the phone, made a game plan, and ended up getting 13 moms and children together to model for a photo shoot to be held the next day at a local park. Everything went smooth and the pictures of all of the moms and their happy little ones wearing her gorgeous jewelry and merch looked stunning. It was a time full of love and laughter and I think it shows in the images. I also helped out with some stock photographs that they could use for their upcoming launch too.
The funny thing is, I had just told my mom that I was not taking on any more projects because my plate was already too full. haha! I was 6 months pregnant, had a full schedule as it was and you know moms, she is always worried I take on and do too much. But, this project was put on my heart to respond to because I genuinely love the Dapper and Darling line of items and I knew Kailey was in need of someone who could knock it out and I was just the one that could do that. At the shoot, she got tears in her eyes just seeing the sneak peek I showed her on the back of my camera and it solidified it was totally the right decision.
What good is talent if you don’t share it with the world and those who need you the most? To me, it would be a waste and it especially feels good to collaborate with someone who appreciates it.
So, here is a look at how they turned out.
