hello, blog! it’s been a while and i have a lot to share. first up is a really fun (but cold) swimwear solution shoot i did for her life magazine this spring. you wouldn’t know it by looking at these photos but it was only 40 degrees (and super windy) the day we shot. our gorgeous model was such a trooper…never complaining and working so hard to pull off every shot i wanted to get. we had her wrapped in heavy blankets to keep warm between shots. if you haven’t been to swimwear solution, i highly recommend it. located at hawthorne plaza in overland park, it has become my go to shop for swimwear. the staff works so hard to help you find the perfect fit, their selection is amazing and they’re having a great sale now through july 31 that you won’t want to miss. stop by, tell them i sent you in and have fun shopping! swimwear solution, 4845 west 119th street, overland park, ks 66209 model ainslie stern of exposure, inc. hair by leslee weers of salon spice makeup by paige pelfrey
