It’s proper right here! It’s HERE! Wendy Conklin’s surprising new guide, Life Whimsy, is out in the world and I can finally show y’all what she’s been operating on for the remainder 12 months(+)!
Wendy and I have been operating together on her brand visuals since 2021, and the main time she mentioned wanting to write down down her non-public guide, I KNEW it was going to be a dose of delight in paper form. The guide is occupied with simple easy methods to think, play, and artwork further creatively, and is the *absolute best* representation of the brand she’s built over time. I to find myself newly inspired the entire thing time I look by the use of its pages (and I’ve gave the impression by the use of it QUITE a few events now)!
The guide incorporates footage from all 3 of Wendy’s shoot- her initial full-day session in September 2021, the half-day session to document her collaboration with Frances Valentine, and then a book-specific full-day shoot in September 2022 where we worked with laser precision to fill the remaining gaps for the guide. And the result is GORGEOUS! It’s such a excitement to see what collection of of our footage she was able to use!
I just like the collection of footage she has to pull from- flat lays, process imagery, footage of her apparatus, portraits, storytelling visuals, SO MANY CHOICES!
This is one in every of my favorites, from the very end of her third shoot closing Fall! I’ll blog those pictures next week and gives the story behind this frame- I’m SO HAPPY it got its non-public 2nd as a full-page photograph!
and then there was…
The Unencumber Celebration!
Because of why unlock a guide by yourself while you COULD invite 200+ friends to join throughout the fun?
Wendy made this unlock an immersive revel in, and I’m so grateful I may well be there to clutch it all! Her audience individuals were given right here to her area in Round Rock, Texas from as regards to (like, across the facet highway) and a long way (anyone flew in from Spain!) to have a good time the new guide, tour Wendy’s vibrant area, and meet the woman of the hour herself!
In true Wendy style, it was so dang lovely. Frosé and frozen margaritas to go spherical, charcuterie cups, a cupcake truck (why isn’t this a think about DC??), and further. Enjoy a few highlights from *the best* birthday celebration I’ve been to all 12 months!
Oh… and as you’re scrolling, don’t disregard the custom designed dress Wendy commissioned for the birthday celebration from my girl Katherine Bignon! It was a mood all on its own, and so utterly Wendy. I can’t believe a further absolute best frock for the example!
