Back in December, I did an encouragement session with Ashley of Virginia Ashley Photography, who has been one of my greatest supporters on this small business endeavor! We sat down and talked about all wedding things, small business things, and ways for me to grow my business. Ashley mentioned that she was working on putting together a styled shoot for her new branding and website launch and that she needed some help! We started planning and getting our inspiration together and finally landed on a date - February 15. 

Well, it may have been 6 months ago that we did this shoot and it's hard to imagine anything but hot weather right now, but it was a LOT colder then. We were under a winter weather warning and weren't even sure if we were going to be able to get everyone together and make the shoot a reality! But, just as there isn't any rescheduling a wedding due to weather, we decided to keep going forward and do the shoot anyway. Our venue was the beautiful Woman's Club of Portsmouth, and I'm pretty sure all of the vendors came from across at least one bridge to get there - as far as from Richmond! With the snow, ice, and freezing rain, it was a wonderful outcome and a great way to spend such a dreary day!

I think you'll agree that it was worth it!
