A Valentine's Day engagement session complete with excited puppy and mini snow storm.
I have always been a crafty-type girl. When I was younger I was always painting, drawing, making funny t-shirts, sewing clothes, and making jewelry. And since I have had my own business and family, time became scarce and not much crafting was had. Fast forward to last year when I was putting a few shoots together and looking for some fun birdcage veils to finish off the look I was going for. Nothing. I couldn't find anything that I thought was spunky enough or I couldn't find anything at all. So I did a little research and decide to make my own. I was a crafty girl, why not? They turned out pretty slick and instead of throwing them away after I was done using them for shoots, I sold them. That got me thinking. And posh|rebel was born. My creative partner, Kelly and I spent TONS of time over the fall and winter planning, shopping and designing. Our goal was to have a website with hairpieces up and running by March. Even before the website was complete, we had custom orders coming in and have a bridal shop ready to carry some of our pieces. With that kind of response, I am feeling pretty good that there is a stylish hole in Minnesota that hopefully posh|rebel can fill. Kelly and I have so much fun getting together every week to cut, sew, and perfect our little creations. It's a nice little break from sitting in front of a computer as much as I do, and now that Kelly bought me a thimble, I don't stab my self nearly as much as I had been. :) We had a little photo shoot a couple of weeks ago to photograph the pieces. We were lucky to have 3 lovely models, some awesome bouquets, a little shooting inside (brrrrrr!) and a little shooting inside, and a whole bunch of birdcage veils, feathers and brooches. A huge shout-out and thank you to everyone involved!! Here are some shots from the shoot. The models were troopers, it wasn't exactly warm the day we shot. But I think the outdoor snow shots were worth it!! The full posh|rebel line is showcased on the website. Check it out and order yourself something fabulous.
