Thank you for joining us on this exciting day!! Laura and I (Nichole) have been working on this premiere issue of The Fort for a long time now, and we are so happy to finally be sharing it with all of you! We ask that you please take a look around our new website, flip through our first issue, and please share The Fort with all of your photographer friends!
When Laura and I decided to make this magazine we wanted it to be a place of inspiration, and a place where questions could be asked and answered. So, if you would like something to be explained and/or addressed in a future issue, please feel free to contact us. We are nice, we swear!
We could not have completed this issue alone, so we would like to personally thank the following people (and dog):
First, we’d like to thank Shannon Sewell for taking the time to contribute your wonderful images, and for providing us with incredible insight. It’s evident why so many people are drawn to you, you are a creative GENIUS!
We would also like to thank April Williams for the layout of the magazine. It really came to life once you added all of those playful details. When working with you, we are NEVER disappointed!
The Fort would definitely not be as awesome without Erin Vaughan and your gorgeous illustrations!!! We are so grateful to have worked with you. We couldn’t have found a better fit for this project!
We would also like to thank our stylist Megan LaRussa. You have a keen eye for detail. We were blown away by the colorful clothing for our model and blankets for the tent in our featured session. You truly went above and beyond for us!
Also a BIG thank you to Trudy Engel for being the rising star that you are! Please be sure to add Trudy to your bookmarks folder, she’s definitely someone you’ll want to follow!
And last but certainly not least, a HUGE thank you to Mason (our handsome model) and Lily (the most awesome dog ever) for your time! Without the two of you The Wanderers wouldn’t have been possible!
