We couldn’t help but notice all the amazing magic the ladies of The Fox and the Sparrow have been making on the Instagram universe with their modern take on photographing women and children. We were so excited to see that they were headed to Chicago in September to shoot some sessions, and had to ask them if they would be interested in hosting an event at our flagship store in Chicago. To our amazement, they said YES!
So a few weeks ago, the ladies set up a free mini-workshop for our customers to come in and learn tips on how to style and take beautiful pictures of their own kiddos with just a camera phone.
Rachael Lunghi from Siren Floral Co. taught our customers how easy it is to make beautiful flower crowns (Who don’t love a flower crown?).
Erika Beukelman from 1011 Makeup chatted with the ladies on ways to style their hair and makeup. And she also worked her magic on some of their hair with top knots and braids (Lucky ladies!).
This was such a lovely event for our customers, and we loved having these ladies in store! Check out the Fox and the Sparrow on Instagram for upcoming dates of their sessions and to see their amazing work.
When Lauren isn’t planning ridiculously awesome #nodevents for The Land of Nod, she spends her time putting up with the crazy antics of her English Bulldog, Lola. She also loves searching for treasures in vintage stores and summer antique markets. Due to her previous adventure living in Canada, she has a strong obsession to Hudson Bay stripes, as well as the fine cuisine of poutine (Don’t make her choose between the two…that’s like choosing between Ryan Gosling and Jason Bateman for her!).
