This is @torichristopherson. She volunteered to model for a photoshoot I was part of when I did a one on one with @thepottedpansy. She seemed a bit shy at first, but as soon as the shoot started, her charisma absolutely blew me away.

As creatives, we don't stay on our asses when we get "good enough". As our skills sharpen, we strive to get better. Last April, that's exactly what happened. I felt a little stuck in my next steps as a flower designer, so I reached out to Mandy Ogaz at @thepottedpansy and signed up for her one on one workshop. I packed my bags, took a road trip to Salt Lake City with some friends, and gleaned from her for two days. I dropped about $4,000 to make it happen, but it was so worth it.
After those two days, I felt like my skills improved exponentially. My bouquets and centerpieces started to look 100 times better, I learned how to make installations for the first time, received professional photos of my work for the first time, and most importantly, I gained the confidence to venture out so I can build my business, teach my partners, and share my gift to the world.
Do you have a mentor or mentors who push you to the next level? Tell me more! Comment below for a chance to win a free bouquet next month.

A few weeks ago, we did a photoshoot to get pics of us working for our website. @brambleandvinephotography did an amazing job capturing every moment!
Special shout out to @steph.eunji for marking the wrong date when we scheduled the shoot and not being able to make it. I hope FOMO got the best of you that week!

I want to give a quick shout out to my friend @bernadettemadden, owner of Bramble and Vine Photography. In our few encounters, it's obvious how much she cares, not just about her work, but the satisfaction and overall happiness of her clients. She's able to take ridiculousle awkward people and impart confident in themselves as they pose for photos. She takes shots of my floral arrangements and honesty makes the look a hundred times better than I remember. And on top of that, she's so generous with her time and talent, where she enabled noobs like me to jump into the next level of my career in the wedding and creative industry. Looking forward to future collabs, and more importantly, long term friendship!

Our friends @coba.coffee just launched their Kickstarter campaign today! The basic idea is that pioneering a new way to consume coffee. By eating it. It looks and feels like chocolate, but it ain't chocolate.
Anyone who makes a pledge of $150 or more will receive a bomb ass bouquet like one one pictured. It retails at $250, so you're getting an amazing deal.
Simply back them on Kickstarter and DM us to let us know. Once the campaign ends and payment is received, you will receive credit for one bouquet at time and date of your choice!
