JuLiana’s Boutique La Femme in Sioux Falls truly is ” that ” something special boutique. – Their fashion forward mind-set truly separates them the crowd. – The garments are stylish, elegant, and, eye catching. – There is no question in my mind why women both locally and nationally reach-out to Julie, Lana and their team for fashion advice and access to some of the hottest designer clothing.
For me, it was a treat being able to photograph these beautiful dresses by Nicole Miller and Milly ( Michelle Smith ). – The textures, the details and quality of the materials are truly superb.
Enjoy a glance into our shoot.

The Dakota Pipeline represents so much Evil and disrespect to our indigenous peoples here in America still to this day. – It’s so incredible through all of their hardships over the past 500 years as settlers have raped, stolen lands and slaughtered their ancestors they still prevail with hope, prayer and love as such a giant marches through their lands without tribal permission threatening their very way of life with Oil and the possible leaks within their aquifers. – Much like the settlers long past, treaty after treaty broken by our government they face still indignities that dehumanize their very presence on their own land. – Land that is a sovereign independent nation from the United States Government. – I’m so thankful with my own eyes, ears and time I was able to sit, listen, shake hands, observe and learn about their cultures and struggles. – Understanding the great gravity of what is happening in ND, I came upon much more than I had anticipated. – I came upon a tribal gathering of such magnitude that it hasn’t been seen in over 140 years. Tribe after tribe after tribe arriving with grand entrances with flags, dances and songs. Some by horse, some by boat, some by parade. – All coming together in one single voice at Standing Rock showing love, prayer and kindness standing up against Big Oil taking over their lands.
– My experiences this week at the Standing Rock Reservation were filled with warm welcomes, shared meals, pow wows and the love of family. – I would like for you to see the inside of the camp at Standing Rock. – It is a place of harmony, sharing of culture, education, song and prayer. All pushing forward for a peaceful, non-violent resolution that respects their lands, burial sites and right to govern their own sovereign lands independent of the rapist that is The Dakota Pipeline LLC. – I am so thankful that today a continued temporary halt on production was made by the Obama Administration based upon the atrocities and injustices that are continuing to unfold.
From my eyes, to yours here is what it looks like in the very peaceful, wisdom filled Standing Rock camp.
Working at WeFest this year gave me quite the chuckle when I realized it was my 8th year. – My how time flies. – I’ve watched so many performers grow change and evolve before my very eyes. – Its so humbling to be continually invited back to handle the back stage photography and meet and greets for the festival. Its so personal. – I’m blown away how the team we’ve accumulated over the years has really turned into one big family. – Always a friendly smile and a firm handshake or a hug every time you bump into a familiar face. I can’t wait until next year! 🙂 – Enjoy a peak into my world!
