Happy Valentine’s Day 2018, I guess… Everyone who knows me knows that I do hate this holiday; not because I’m single (that part is awesome for now) but because I think that we should love one another this much every single day and not just only on February 14th.
I shot this photos with the super talented Anna Tripoltis at our local Target! I was inspired by the “ugly places pretty photos” Lowe’s challenge and used the Valentine’s Day sections here. Since I’m not a fan of V-day, I went for an all black, gothic look; lipstick included. Something to edge up all the girly-ness.
I looked at my Valentine’s Day post from a year ago and it is so crazy to see how much I’ve changed in just 365 days! If interested, feel free to check that out here.

I am so glad that H Collective was having a Hub Day meet-up in Kansas City! I ended up going and met tons of amazing creatives. I got to shoot with about ten different photographers. It is so cool to see how each one has a different view and inspiration for the same outfit/pose. I only have images back from 2 photographers so far but as more come my way I will update this post!
