Sneak Peek: Tailgate Photo Shoot

So you probably already know that we had a tailgate photoshoot this past weekend for our fall issue of Twila. A while ago, a good friend, Alicia, from Alicia Jayne Florals approached me about doing a styled shoot for the magazine since the fall issue is a tailgate theme. With thanks to Twila's new event planner Jeri, we were able to find some models and vendors, and went from there! It went AMAZINGLY well. I can't wait to share all the photos with you in the upcoming magazine. We couldn't have done it without our amazing vendors and models (aka friends and family), and we'd like to thank each and every one of them for helping us with our vision.

The magazine will feature all of our fantastic vendors, an amazing lookbook, recipes for all the food seen in the photos, and SO MUCH MORE!!! I'm only going to share a few photos of it with you as I want to wait for the magazine to reveal all of them, but here's a quick sneak peek!
