Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Hillary, a woman that embodies the term “girl boss”. Not only does she spend her days owning and operating boutique hotels in Montana, but she is also an awesome fashion blogger as well! Did I mention she is doing it all while being pregnant with her baby girl? Yes, she does it all. We decided to collaborate creatively and that means Hillary had the chance to fly out to Palm Springs for a fun weekend getaway filled with capturing the type of girl boss she really is. She used Flytographer to book her session with me.
During our lifestyle session, we took advantage of many beautiful and unique qualities that Palm Spring has to offer. We made the trip down to the Saguaro Hotel and took advantage of the very colorful and vibrant hotel that overlooked the Palm Springs Mountains, officially known as the San Jacinto Mountains. One of the amazing things about not only California, but Palm Springs in particular, is the post modern vibe that the city has to offer. It seems that everywhere you go, there are simple yet extraordinary pieces of architecture and nature that can completely allure a person. It is clear that the combination of the many wonderful works of nature, along with Hillary’s amazing fashion (talk about a fashionista), called for a session that could really show off the adventurous, bright, and beautiful mother to be!
Let’s not forget that we took advantage of one of the many perks of taking a vacation; relaxing by the pool. Hillary is showing off exactly why she is a respected fashion blogger as she rocks her ADORABLE black ShopBop swimsuit while poolside. As she is expecting her baby girl soon, a much needed “me time” by the pool was in order. Her photos show her fun, bubbly, and carefree self, that I can tell is not just reserved for vacation, and I love it!
Lifestyle sessions give me the opportunity to work creatively with so many wonderful individuals, such as Hillary. It is exciting to have the chance to combine our own individual styles and end up with something quite wonderful; not only the pictures, but the memories to reflect back on. The journey included going to many amazing places I never thought I would embark on, to forming unforgettable bonds that one would not think you could get in such a short amount of time. How fortunate I feel to be able to connect with such wonderful people through my job! Three words to describe my experience with Hillary? Fun, Venturesome, & Fabulous!
