NEELIE BROWNE

Neelie recently signed with The Dragonfly Agency and they set up a shoot for us while she was in town from Kansas City. After looking through her book, I really wanted to show a softer side to her. Most of the work she had in her portfolio was edgy and a little darker / more editorial. 

My style is more feminine and soft, so I really wanted to push that with Neelie. I styled the majority of her looks from Anthropologie and J-Crew, with a few accent pieces from everyone's favorite place to waste time, Target. 

The plan was to meet at Sam Houston Trails in Irving, but it turned out to be impossible to find. Google Maps kept telling us we were there even though we were on a bridge over the highway.. Soo we quickly made a new plan and I actually think it turned out better!

We rerouted to a nearby neighborhood, and walked to the park through the neighborhood's trail. It brought us out in a spot I never would have noticed before – this gorgeous, sprawling field of green grass. 

I saved my favorite dress for the final look. Neelie looked absolutely gorgeous in this all white, lace dress from Anthro. 

This was such a fun shoot. I loved every minute of it. Plus, Anthropologie has been reposting some of out pictures from it, so that's pretty freaking awesome!!
