When Jess from FLY Photography approached me for a collaboration, I had no idea the amount of talent I was dealing with. I had been approached 9 times that month by people who wanted to do creative projects, but none of them really had a game plan and most were more interested in benefiting their name instead of “teaming” up. I was starting to get frustrated until Heidi (our store manger) said, “Julie, you don’t owe anyone anything! Stay focused on what you do best and you’ll know when the right person comes along.” A day later I met Jess.
Her specialty is senior portraits, so her idea was for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique to outfit 25 girls for their senior pictures. They would come in a few days prior to the shoot for a fitting and the actual indie shoot would be done in one day around the boutique grounds.
The pictures are amazing and each girl had a blast going through the boutique and choosing items. With the help of our on-site stylists Heidi and Barbara, each model was magazine ready! We made some new friends and helped empower some young women along the way. The girls brought their own shoes, but all of the clothing, handbags, hats, and jewelry is from the store.
Jess provided me with some great fashion shots to use for promoting the store as well as a phone app. Yep, you heard me right, a PHONE APP!

And, just when I thought she couldn’t get any cooler, she sends over this Roadkill Ranch & Boutique look book that she created! Click here to check it out Look Book.
I’m so glad I met Jess. She is ultra-awesome! Seriously, and just when I was coming down from the “Look Book” high, she delivered a FLY tote full of custom made thank you cards and a disc with some additional pictures of the inside of my store.
Thank you Jess! And thank you FLY Girls for an amazingly, successful collaboration! We will definitely be “teaming” up again! If you are looking for a creative way to express yourself please contact Jess. She will take care of you and make sure your senior pictures represent your first big step into a new and exciting world. After all, FLY stands for “Free the Lovely You.”
