A couple of weekends ago, Jenna hosted a little blogger photoshoot at her parents' house on the lake! While the weather was a bit on the cooler side of spring, the location was gorgeous! Seriously amazing! Amy Rau was kind enough to shoot all of us together, and I think she captured every last detail perfectly! I'll be sharing bits and pieces of our little retreat throughout the week! If you don't know the other girls, you should! Please make sure you visit their blogs and say hello!

This shoot was so much fun! I mean, picture 5 fashion bloggers deciding who is going to brave the canoe! It ended up being a somewhat easy decision since the canoe can only hold 3-ish people, and 3 out of the 5 of us were wearing their wellies. Decision made! While I didn't actually get on the water in the canoe, it sure does make for a good prop!
Sherlock is seriously the cutest dog ever, outside of my own two pups of course. He had to come out and inspect everything before he gave us the green light to start the boarding process.
These are the most genuine laughs ever captured in a photo! So, what happened was…. Psyche and I were supposed to push the girls into the water on the count of three and Amy was going to capture the precious moment in action. We counted down - one, two, three, push! Psyche and I pushed with all our might and…. nothing. The canoe did not budge, hence the laughing! It seemed so precarious and unstable when they were boarding, we both figured that it wouldn't take much to push them in, but we were totally wrong. We managed to get them in the water on the second try, but it took about twenty times more effort than the first!
These girls are even more gorgeous and fun in real life than they are on their blogs. This was such a fun collaboration! I'm thankful that blogging allowed us all to meet! We are all local to St. Louis with the exception of Annie who drove in from Indiana! She's a trooper!
