I'm so excited to have the opportunity to gush about one of my favorite creative ladies in Paducah - Miss F.A.C.E. (aka Erin Hendley!). I've had the pleasure of collaborating with her in several professional settings and we'll even get together over a few beers at Dry Ground! Paducah is so lucky to have her.

All this to say - she is such a talented lady and I was able to get a little insight for you guys! The photos in this post are from the fashion shoot we did for the May/June edition of Paducah Life

Erin said that once I shared the styled looks, she planned the makeup direction from there. As she said, "the personality of the clothing was a good indicator of the direction of the makeup". From there, she envisioned the "tone of the makeup" to serve as another accessory in the look. The makeup was curated mostly on color choice, not precision/architecture. 

Everyone's expertise shined through to create some wonderful shots. It's such an amazing moment for me to see all of everyone's specialties come together so effortlessly! I'm truly blessed to know these amazing women. It's inspiring!

If you're interested in purchasing any of the products seen in today's post, you're in luck! Nearly all of the products are actually F.A.C.E. products and can be purchase at Erin's storefront. If you're outside of the Paducah area, feel free to contact Erin for shipping options (

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I share the three different looks we shot for the May/June edition. It's by far my favorite shoot that I've ever done so I can't wait to share!
