Tuesday @ 7 - #10: Katy Lynn

"I basically want to revolutionize the way the Church does women's ministry." 

Well, that's one way to start a conversation. At least, that's how Katy started it when I asked her what she wanted to do with her life. You know me. I'm a sucker for big dreams, ambitions, and goals. I love helping people take an idea and turn it into a reality. So when Katy started to not only breakdown the ideas in her mind of how she wanted to do that, but also invited me in to collaborate when she gets started later this summer, I was so pumped!

This morning's shoot was so much fun! I'm sorry this one took me a while to get posted. Today was crazy. But this is easily my favorite shoot I've ever done. If every shoot I did looked like this, I'd be a happy camper (or photographer; I don't really go camping). I love how we somehow got so many different colors in this shoot. Green, red, blue, white, black. It's all here. 

This shoot was quite the adventure. We tried to get on two different rooftops but got rejected and almost got on a third one that would've sounded off an alarm before we finally found the one we were looking for. And we even had to kind of play the system a little bit to get on it as there were people around. I may or may not have pretended to be a fashion photographer for D Magazine at some point. Don't tell them. Kinda sketchy, but so worth the shots. 

Working with Katy came really naturally. She's got this Audrey Hepburn vibe to her that few people can pull off. She's super chill and easy to talk to. I feel like we're on the same page on the dreamer scale too. Just throwing out huge ideas with a surprisingly sound strategy on how to make them happen. Did I mention I'm pumped to help her out with hers? 

Speaking of big dreams, I'll be posting a blog post tomorrow with a really big announcement. This announcement is incredibly personal to me and is a really huge step. I've already told several people in person, but I feel it warrants a full post to explain. If you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe with your email tomorrow and I'll make sure you get it. Either way, you can subscribe and I'll start sending these shoots to your inboxes on Tuesdays when they're done so you never miss one. There might even be a few other things of interest in there. How nice!

So that's the shoot. Did I mention it's my favorite?
