Some favorites from the most recent shoot with Rosewood Clothing Co.
You can shop some of these pieces on their online shop as well as in their brick and morter location here in Richmond at 16 W Broad.

Time spent in this space with this person is always lovely. 

This firecracker of a girl has stolen my heart from the very beginning and to call her a dear friend is such an honor. She just is a kind of authentic, from the top of her enviable wild and unruly mop of curls to her vintage leather clog clad toes, that makes for a truly wonderful being.
I dare you to walk into the shop and not just fall in love with her right there. She's an amazing lady doing amazing things and Richmond is pretty lucky to have her here helping support and build the creatives community.

Also something worth noting is that Rosewood Clothing Co's online shop is finally live!
This lady has worked so crazy hard this last half year or so building her shop and her brand and it's been such a pleasure getting to work alongside her taking photos for her during that journey. For those of you who don't live in RVA and have been missing out on the wonderfulness that is Rosewood Clothing Co, you can now join in with shopping online. Ashley's taste in vintage and handmade goods is spot on. So go take a peek and treat yourself to something nice. It's the best way to shop local. Some current favorite pieces of mine are this fragrance, this denim dress, this top, and this coach bag.
Go have a look and shop around!

Also go check out Ashley's interview on People In Their Homes (my new favorite site and Instagram account) if you want to fall more in love with her.

A Girl Named Leney virginia gift guide

My lovely and dear friend Ashley of Rosewood Clothing Co. is being featured over on State x State today! As am I, as it so happens, with my photos of her as well as having The Traveling Scarf being featured in her gift guide! 
She's the bees knees though and deserves the spotlight for sure. 
So go head on over and read Ashley's Q&A, her top recommendations for RVA and her Gift Guide which also features a few other Richmond makers.

If you live in Richmond or are coming to visit anytime soon, go say hi to her at the shop located on 16 W Broad and open Monday-Friday 12-7 and Saturday-Sunday 11-6.
Tell her I sent you.

I've mentioned before that lifestyle photography is my favorite type of photography. 

Being able to capture real and raw moments organically as they happen.
Unposed, uninhibited.
Letting events and moments take their course and documenting them along the way.

Well, I got the opportunity to do a lovely little session recently for my friend Ashley.
I met this gal over the summer and we've already become steadfast friends. Her excitement for life and the passion she has for the things she loves is nothing short of infectious.

I do so love being around people who are passionate about what they do and are ambitious in a fast driven and on fire sort of way.They're the best kind of people to be around if you ask me.
I think it's partly because there's a special sort of aliveness you feel when you're in the presence of someone who is that motivated and excited about their life and doing good things with it, and it also inspires you in a similar way to pursue your own dreams and ambitions.

Ashley will be opening Rosewood Clothing Co, a shop for her curated vintage and handmade goods as well as consignment, on 16 W. Broad here in Richmond.

She doesn't have a set opening date yet, but I definitely can't wait to see what she does with her space and I'm so happy that I get to be apart of it's little journey as it comes together.
(And you may or may not be able to buy some of my knits in her shop once it's open... Stay tuned!)

Go follow Rosewood Clothing Co. on Instagram for updates and to be the first to know about the opening day!
