We are thankful for the opportunities we have been given to pursue our passions and use the gifts that God has given to us. There is nothing more exhilarating than to be given free range to create and collaborate with other unique individuals. When No'Ala Magazine, a local editorial here in North Alabama, approached Aissa (Aislerchic), Lauren Tomasella, and myself last year about curating, styling, and photographing the local buying guides for each of their Huntsville issues, we were elated!
We are so honored to create content for this local magazine, and to help highlight unique shops, designers, makers, and artisans in our city. The task is challenging and rewarding, and has allowed us to step outside our comfort zones, organize and schedule itineraries, and work within the confines of each issue's particular theme. This past issue, the Entertainment Issue, has been one of my personal favorite shoots to date. We collaborated with other local entrepreneurs and shops to style an outdoor dinner with friends. Since we entertain on the Public Inn's back porch pretty regularly anyways, it made for the perfect backdrop for a summer gathering with friends.
