DIY Textured Styling Board Tutorial

Styling boards have become more popular over the last year, and for good reason! They are the perfect size for bringing along to weddings to style detail shots. And they’re also great for brand photos or shots of your products! I’ve seen shops popping up offering 12in x 18in styling boards for close to $60, but I’ve found an affordable (and fun) hack so you can make your own styling boards for around $15!

La Petite Bloom Grand Rapids Recap

A few weeks ago we kicked off our 2018 workshop year with our La Petite Bloom workshop, where we brought in two teachers in different creative industries and gathered at the Lofts at Luna in downtown Grand Rapids. Sweet Heather Anne taught our attendees how to watercolor on sugar cookies (and gave them her delicious recipe!) and Rhiannon Bosse taught the gals the art of floral arranging. It was such a special day together and I think I speak for everyone when I say we all left incredibly inspired!

Bloom Bash Nashville Styled Shoot Vendors

We are firm believers that styled shoots are the perfect time to perfect old skills and practice new ones. At our workshops we spend months coming up with the cohesive vision to make each shoot unique and gorgeous. At Bloom Bash you will go through a styling breakout session and learn to use your cameras on day one! The Bloom Bash workshop's two day event culminates in an epic styled wedding shoot and Nashville's inspiration (above!) is everything our pastel dreams are made of! After learning your skills on day one we get to put that into practice on the second day. With lavender and blush as our starting point we decided to use gold accents, soft linen textures and springy greens to bring the romantic element to a maximum. Not only will you be able to work with styling and photo experts during the shoot to work on your own skills, you'll leave with beautiful images to use on your website or social media!

It's no secret that Ashley and I LOVE spoiling our attendees! We spend a lot of time thinking about how our guests will feel when they walk through our doors. We not only want our workshop to be educational, but also a time for our attendees to feel filled-up with new friendships, sweet gifts, and good food. Curating our gift boxes for each workshop is something we absolutely love. As big believers in "the little things", we think these special gifts will make our attendees feel pampered and inspired, since they all come from small businesses we adore!
