Even though I took photos of this look while I was in NYC for NYFW (see recap here), I felt it deserved to be photographed with a better camera quality and a professional eye.

Arielle to the rescue!

For the last six months, I've been using Arielle as my photographer and it's been the best decision I've made this year. Before Arielle, my process for getting my photos taken were dependent on fellow bloggers (big up to Ola, Val, ChiChi, Dani, Brea, and Marquita during our blog photos swap days), my sister, various friends, sometimes strangers, and the list goes on and on and on. And while I actually like to edit, some days it became a toll. Contracting a photographer has been such a huge relief. Granted, I'm paying monthly but doing so gives me more motivation to produce great content that'll attract paid partnerships to cover said monthly fees.

Step by baby step, I'm treating this lil' ol' blog of mine as a brand.
