My 2010 seniors had style like no others. Every year I continue to be both amazed and inspired by these girls and their sense of style, each one unique and fabulous in her own way. We always have conversations about where certain pieces of their wardrobe are from and often times the answer is Standard Style Boutique, a local boutique where I also love to shop.
A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to shoot Emily Baldwin of Standard Style for Her Life Magazine. I loved shooting Emily for many reasons. Of course, there's her outward beauty that immediately catches your eye and then there's her undeniable sense of style, but this woman really is a creative force to be reckoned with.
Emily and her husband Matt have brought high fashion to our city through their two boutiques, their line of baldwin denim,
and they're raising awareness on the importance of giving back to those
in our community by shopping local. They're the ones behind Build Kansas City, an inspiring movement encouraging folks to shop local, eat local and spend local – a concept I truly believe in.

If you're one of those fabulous 2010 seniors I mentioned above, be sure to stop by Standard Style Boutique for their Rush Week promotion. For every $100 you spend Standard will give you a $25 credit to put toward accessories or more clothing.
And if you're a 2011 senior and haven't shot yet, you definitely want to hit Standard Style when you're planning your wardrobe.
Until next time – keep on keeping it local,
