Cheers to the weekend from me and my two This chick’s got style girls! (Just so you know: we took this photo last Friday so we’re not getting tipsy at two in the afternoon. That would be wildly inappropriate. And so much fun!)
I love giving you guys a bit of a peek behind the scenes and today I’m introducing you to the two lovely ladies that help make big plans and pretty posts happen at This chick’s got style. A few months ago I was looking for an enthusiastic new blog photographer and somehow two girls crossed my path that I had a great connection with. Karen (who now shoots most of my photos, you’ve probably seen her name on the blog before!) and Kelly (who’s a photographer and writer as well – she just wrote an article for Playboy! – and is helping me think about and planning for the bigger goals I have for This chick’s got style).
I’m so blessed to have found two girls that understand what I do at This chick’s got style, have great taste and are witty, sweet and smart. To do the best work you can, it’s essential to surround yourself with positive, special people – another reason so happy in my new office I share with other creatives as well. So before I get carried away talking about girl power, let me introduce my two This chick’s got style girls. Drum rolls please!
On the left, we have Kelly Nederlof. Kelly assists me with brand development and is basically my brainstorm partner. Somehow she gets me without having to say anything! Together we explore ways to possibly expand the blog, talk about new articles, about what we could do in six or in twelve months. Kelly is a talented writer and photographer as well (she just did an article for Playboy, ha!), have a peek here to see more of her work!
On the right, Karen van Duijvenbode. Karen is such a talented young photographer and already has a distinct signature style - just have a look at her portfolio. I’m so lucky to have her contribute to This chick’s got style and set the tone with wonderful, soft pictures and already feel really at ease in front of her lens. Excited to see what beautiful images we’ll come up with in the next months.
You’ll see these faces more often in the next weeks, and I hope you’ll love the plans we have! Right now I’m at the office with Kelly finalizing things for our first project: the first ever small This chick’s got style event this October that I can’t wait to tell you all about
