Sew In Love Styled Shoot

It has been quite a while since I posted new photos of my calligraphy and fun projects I have been working on! Last year I posted items for a styled shoot with Roses and Lace. Here is the final shoot, featured on Wedding Chicks!

The shoot was beautifully captured by Claire Elyse Photography and had such a wonderful meaning. As told by Roses and LaceClaire of Claire Elyse Photography spent time last year in Kigali, Rwanda, documenting a group of 15 women in the Umucyo Sewing Cooperative. I later came across a picture from her trip. It was a picture of a woman with a tape measure around her neck. She wanted to wear the tape measure as a symbol of the joy, pride, and deep sense of dignity she receives from having an income and a way to provide for her children. This inspired us to create a shoot that captured this love and joy of sewing, and put it into a wedding styled shoot.
