Locals Connect ft. Just Bri Yourself + Alfield Reeves Photography

Thursday, May 4, 2017

I am SO excited to finally share my first blogger to blogger collaboration! It's only right to thank Alfield Reeves for making this happen, bringing myself + Brianna of Just Bri Yourself together, + shooting *AMAZING* photo content! 
This is what happens when locals connect!

This was my first time ever shooting with a fellow style influencer + professional photographer. We had been talking about collaborating for a while. We initally connected via Instagram, naturally following each other since we all dwell in the same city. Alfield took the initiative + invited us out for coffee a few months ago. Our creative minds immediately got to work. We all instantly vibed, completely forgetting that we arrived as strangers. 

We finally were able to coordinate our schedules + nail down a shoot date. I will say the day of the photo shoot I was a little nervous, especially never collaborating in this way before. Once we started shooting, all of that went away immediately! Partnering with like-minded creatives, no matter what the task may be, is ALWAYS beneficial! We all clicked, just like our initial meeting at the coffee shop. I felt so comfortable shooting with Bri + Alfield. We fed off of each other's energy, giving feedback throughout the shoot. In a setting that would seem competitive {being of the same style niche} there was nothing but love! Working side by side with Bri + Alfield made me want to give 100%! This was their photoshoot as much as it was mine, so I had to come correct!

In the end, this collaboration made me feel even more confident than when I arrived. + reminded me that stepping out of your comfort zone + challenging yourself is always worth it! I am looking forward to future collaborations with these two! Until then, I'll just keep obsessing over these photos!
