All you need is LOVE

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


Valentine’s Day. The day of l-o-v-e.

A day to show affection to the ones we love most. A day full of hallmark cards, overpriced flowers, and yummy, chocolate candies. A day of hugs and kisses and valentine wishes!

But if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, and you’ve been dreaming of a day to celebrate with just your girls, mark your calendar because Galentine’s Day is for you. February 13th is known as the day for the ladies to celebrate ladies. Only the best day of the year. It’s basically like Valentine’s Day, only you spend it with your best girlfriends. What could be better?!?!

Love is the purest form of emotion. It’s an emotion that we all crave and that we all desire to give. We have been given the greatest example of love. We all have reasons to be loved and a reason to love others. Everyone is loved, regardless of our story. Even on the hard days, what feels like your worst day, you are valued and loved. We are called to love our neighbors and to do all things in love. We hope you know that we love you all and we value your friendships so much! <3

We thought it would be fun to share a few of our own favs with you!

Up first, Madalyn!

My favorite Valentine’s Day traditions are sending out Valentine cards to my best friends, having dinner with all my friends, and all the yummy chocolate!

My favorite things: coffee, Shaylee (my dog), my home, Target, creativity, baking, and sweets!

Up next, Amber!

My favorite Valentine’s Day traditions are making Valentine’s crafts, sharing and guessing the flavors in a box of chocolates with my hubby, and this year we are starting new traditions with our sweet, baby girl!

My favorite things: iced coffee, my sweet little family, chocolate chip cookies, crafts, fashion trends, home decor, and snuggles!

YOU all are our favorite clients and we are so grateful for each of you! Sending you lots of hugs today! xoxo
