I am so excited to share with you all my images during Miami Swim Week. I was invited as a personal photographer to Arkansas Blogger, Tara Gibson of Jimmy Choos and Tennis Shoes and Georgia Blogger, Lauren Lefevre of Edit By Lauren. Make-up Artist, Jennifer of Jenny Sue Makeup was also with us during our trip. Prior to the trip, I met Tara in Dallas for a shoot and thought she was so kind and fabulous. I knew this trip was going to be a fun experience.
This was my very first time in Florida and I can say Miami was as gorgeous as I thought it would be. We got to stay right outside of South Beach at The Sonesta in Coconut Grove. It was nice to come back to a peaceful hotel without all of the chaos surrounding South Beach for Swim Week. I adored Coconut Grove- this is such a good vacation spot if you are traveling to Miami with family. Just one block from the hotel is an outdoor shopping strip filled with restaurants and goodies.
Our itinerary was filled with fashion shows, presentations, events, and parties. The best part was that everyone was very laid back and nothing felt rushed.
The first show I got to experience was for Hot As Hell. They held the show at The W Hotel in a very small tent that probably could hold about 100 people. They would only allow so many people in at once, I seriously don't even know how I got in. Somehow, I managed to watch the show from the 2nd row!
When that show wrapped, we made our way to an outdoor pool area for the Kaohs Swim show.

The first fashion show for the day was at The 1 Hotel for Revel Rey.
Next up, we checked out the fabulous Tresemme Hair Salon, located in the penthouse at The W Hotel.
After getting glam with Tresemme, the girls enjoyed a rooftop pool party.
Next up, Wynwood Walls! Wynwood Walls is a shopping area covered in art murals. You can access a free outdoor art gallery that has contributions from artists from all around the world.
We headed over to the Stella McCartney Swim and Eyewear Presentation held at The Webster.
