OCTOBER 2016


Have you ever walked up to a random stranger and introduced yourself? It’s a bit of an uncomfortable situation, yeah? You don’t want to come off as a super weirdo (not cool), or a creeper (creepy), or like a stalker (cue the guy in the corner to start singing Every Breath You Take). It’s a risky move. Putting yourself out there. But honestly, 9 times out of 10, it pays off.

Exhibit A ::

It’s the 4th of July in North Carolina. Nathan and I are casually strolling the streets of downtown Raleigh, decked out in an obnoxious amount of red, white, and blue, when, among all of the homemade soap booths and cotton-candy stands, I spy a magical booth filled with gorgeous macrame and dripping with green plant goodness. Working the booth is a laid-back girl with cool tattoos and an obvious talent for tying knots. Nicole. I honestly don’t remember exactly what we talked about that day – I’m pretty sure I complimented her work profusely: I had never seen anything like it – but by the end of the conversation we had swapped business cards and both indicated we would like to work together at some point.

Fast forward to October and what started out as an impulsive ‘hello’ has turned into a full-on friendship and supportive business gal-pal. This shoot, possible only through the dreaming, doing, and collaboration of so many talented souls, is a testament to that friendship and the limitless possibilities that start with saying HELLO.

*No offense to hand-made soaps or cotton-candy. I enjoy them both. :)
