I’ve been friends with the super sweet and talented Jackie Foley for a few years now. We met one day at her studio with baby Ellie bundled in her stroller to talk business and discuss the possibility of collaborating together (in my experience, the best business meetings are the ones that you can bring your toddler to 😉 ).
Jackie is a wedding and lifestyle photographer (see my picture in the sidebar there? That’s her handiwork) and I had been the editor of a regional wedding blog for a while, where I eagerly featured her gorgeous work. With similar tastes and a mutual love of food, we decided that working on a project together was kind of a must. After a little back and forth (and a lot of food), Bijou, an online wedding magazine with an emphasis on love, was born.
In the years since our little project, I have watched Jackie’s business flourish—this girl is always traveling somewhere for a shoot—and I’ve watched her juggle a whole lot on her plate in the process. When I started thinking about small business-owning ladies who seemed to define #girlboss, Jackie was a given.
I’m so excited to give you a little peek at the girl behind the business.
