In preparation of creating the Tailgating Guide for Calligraphy Etc., I’m not gonna lie – I needed a little help.  Well, a lot of help, actually.  Linda McMillan Photography

From the prepping of the food to gathering the props in 95 degree heat (thank you Suzanne!), the styling of the shots for the guide, this project ended up being more work than I originally envisioned.  I am pleased with the result, but I can’t take all the credit for how smoothly the project went.  I dealt with the products to feature, but I also enlisted a few talented ladies to tidy up the details for me.

I feel so SO blessed to have had the opportunity to collaborate on this project with two fabulous ladies – Allison Fannin (Two Thirty Five Designs) and Linda McMillan (Linda McMillan Photography).  They’re fun gals, they both have a great energy, and  they’re super easy to work with.  Plus, they’re totally on my creative “page”, so I can just give them my initial idea and let them each run with it!  For creative-types, that’s not easy to find (and it’s such a relief).  There’s nothing more exciting than knowing that others “get” your idea and make it even better (and nothing more frustrating than those that JUST. DON’T. GET IT.)

Allison is  a local fashion/DIY/design blogger and Linda is one of the few local photogs that I recommend.  If you don’t know these ladies yet, you should!  Feel free to show them a  little love across the social media-verse:
