Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. ~C. S. Lewis
We are taking a break this week from our mother/daughter profiles on the blog to celebrate something else we are so thankful for: friendship! Cindy Shaver is the heart and soul behind Cindy Shaver Photography. She also happens to be a great friend to us going back to the days when my Jessica and her Jessica played volleyball together.
Cindy shoots wedding, family portraiture, children, and senior portraits. She's actually done three of our weddings and we treasure the images! She also has a great program for her senior portrait clients - they can be her ambassadors to earn credit toward their portrait purchase, and it includes some modeling gigs - hence a blessing for Epiphany Boutiques!
Last week some of her Senior Models for 2017 (and the added bonus of one of her daughters) trekked over to Athens and modeled some of our new arrivals. It was a treat for us! Above we have a shot of Liz in our Carry Me Away Sweater and Hayden in our Cranberry Lace Top. The sweater is available at all locations and online - wear it over a tank all summer, or over your swimsuit. Then let it "Carry You Away" into fall over a dress or long sleeve top. It's super versatile! The lightweight and lace bedecked cranberry top is in the Athens store.
Sarah is in one of our new favorites - our Boho Love Lace Up Top. The back of this top is so special with a great lace up detail that isn't too low, and a great weight that doesn't need a tank to make it wearable. You're welcome!
This is Cindy's oldest daughter, Kacey, in our Flowers For Your Dress. We only have a couple of these left online and in Athens, but it's super soft with a great print, and pockets! Who doesn't love pockets?
Layla is wearing our Floral Lace Up Dress. This cute little dress has a lace-up back that is cool and breezy. We love the spaghetti straps - it makes us think BEACH!
Liz is in our Inspire Me Crochet Top - so many great details in one top - the crochet lace at hem and sleeve is really special and we love the lace up neck and tassels.
Hayden is wearing our Lightly Lavender Top - This is another one with a great detail in back - it crosses in front and ties with a nice bow in back and it isn't too low, either. Soft fabric+soft color=one great top!
Here we have Layla rocking out Dreamy Creamy Dress! It is lined, so it's easy to wear and it has such great embroidery at the yoke. Sarah is wearing our Pretty in Periwinkle Top with it's perfect color and choker detail collar. This super soft top is one you will wear once a week! Throw it on with white jeans or shorts and you are good to go!
Kacey is modeling our Embroider Me Tunic. This lovely stone-washed indigo blue tunic dress/top has beautiful embroidery and a great feel, not too thin, so no need for anything underneath. The color makes us happy!
We are thankful for great friends who share their gifts with us! Be sure and check out Cindy Shaver Photography if you need a photographer with vision and a helpful, supportive, and creative spirit! And also a huge thank you to Kacey, Liz, Layla, Hayden, and Sarah for being such lovely models! You girls are awesome!
