Hey ya’ll! I hope everyone had an amazing November and Thanksgiving holiday. I was able to visit the great state of Texas and let me tell you, it was a blast! 10/10 would recommend going.

Behind the Scenes!

Last weekend, Illume took a road trip to the North Carolina Art Museum to do a photoshoot. We made some new friends along the way. First we met up with the fabulous hair stylist and makeup artist Don Whit.

We started off working with Emily individually while Callie and Alexis finished with hair and makeup. Here are a few of our favorite individual shots...
