Self Love Photo Shoot | Richmond, Virginia

I always get excited when Carley, owner of CYork Photography has a project.  Her work is so creative and fun.  I jumped at the opportunity to work with her (and a kick-ass team of female vendors) for a special photo shoot for a friend of hers.  I even tried my hand at those mysteriously sexy french macarons.  I might be slightly obsessed with them now.  For this cake I went with a funky buttercream inlay and gold splatter.  Nothing screams fun like throwing edible paint at something!

Carley had an idea to do positive, uplifting shoot for her friend that had just gone through a divorce.  Don't get it twisted...this shoot wasn't about bashing marriage.  It was all about empowerment and self love.  It's a reminder that many of us could use from time to time.  This project was nothing short of AMAZING!!!  See more of this shoot over at Off Beat Home.
