Vanessa + Kelli: America | Life + Liberty = Happiness

I first met Kelli and Vanessa (two creative friends and the ladies behind Butterfly Sparks and Kelli Trontel Photography) last year when they shared their gorgeous 4th of July photoshoot with us here on Creature Comforts. I then had the pleasure of working with them for Gifted Magazine (they blew my socks off with their awesome photoshoot), and now one year later they’re back and just as fabulous as ever, to share their latest collaboration with us!

Here’s a bit about this wonderful photoshoot in Kelli and Vanessa’s own words:
“What an honor it is to have the freedoms that we have today. As CREATIVES we have been given opportunities to create—and with that, we have a voice. We have mixed old family photos in our board as a reminder of the generations before us that did not have the opportunities and audience that we experience today. Our freedom came at a high price, but in exchange we get to live in pursuit of our dreams.”

Wasn’t that gorgeous! If you’re in the Dallas, Texas area (or would be up for traveling there) Kelli and Vanessa are just now opening registration for their second JOLT creativity workshop (photos from this session came from their first course, held in Nashville). Bonus, if you sign up between now and the 8th you pay $100 less than the standard registration price (there are only 8 spots left…so hurry). For more event details (including photos from their first course) check out their site here, and to hook yourself up with the treat of a lifetime, sign up over here. Thanks again to Kelli and Vanessa for sharing their talent with us today. Have a happy 4th everyone! xo Ez
