Shawn is on the blog today, y’all! It’s my first ever Man Crush Monday! 🙂
I’ve been meaning to get his cute little face on A Lily Love Affair for some time now. We were really fortunate to have partnered recently with Ralph Lauren to share a few of our Fall Style Essentials on Instagram. Shawn has great style so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to feature him as a guest here on the blog. Although, I’d love it if he would be willing to join more in the future. 🙂
And, can I just tell you all, we had the best time shooting together. Since it’s Monday, I figured we’d keep things pretty light hearted today and share a little behind the scenes look at what it looks like on shoot weekends.
First off, many of you know Shawn is my photographer (although, I have also been shooting pretty frequently with my girl Heidi from Wishes & Reality). Before we go on shoots, we pack a little cooler with some afternoon survival must-haves. Shawn typically packs the cooler for us which contains:
1). A good, cold beverage. And when I say beverage, I mean likely a Summer Shandy or wine in a can! Seriously, y’all, he’s the best!
2). A few “healthy” snacks (for Shawn, of course). Usually that means cheese sticks for me and oranges or grapes for Shawn.
3). Water. Boring.
Second, we usually try to make the most of our time shooting together which means we often shoot no less than 4-5 looks in the same morning or afternoon. While that can be a pain some days, Shawn is amazing to me and built me a closet organizer in the back of my Wrangler. Y’all, no joke, it’s pretty divine. #HesAmazing
Since we shoot multiple looks in one day, that often means we’re changing and getting half naked in random parking lots. I can’t tell you the countless number of times I’ve flashed folks around here. Whoops.
This go around, with us shooting together, it was fun to see him get into the grove of shooting. I think he finally has an appreciation for how much work we go through to put it all together.
Be sure to follow along on InstaStories these next couple of weekends. I’ll give you all a live look for yourself – there’s typically a lot of laughing and craziness involved.
Who’s your Man Crush Monday?
Hope you all have a great start to the week! XO
