Casting Call

WE NEED MODELS!! A Lofty Love and Leslie Patrice Photography are joining passions to showcase the latest adorable headbands from A Lofty Love’s Etsy store!



A Lofty Love is a delightful business, locally owned by Jen Bryant, which specializes in handmade headbands and other accessories for baby girls and fashionable young and adult women! For Jen, sewing accessories and other handmade items has become much more to her than just sewing, it has become a way of connection. Learn more about Jen here! For Leslie, photography has been her way to allow others to see themselves freely, and to capture the organic moments that happen in life. Learn more about Leslie here. We met at our local YMCA during a random chat in the middle of the hallway, and realized that we had so much in common: Jesus, young children, womentrepreneurs, and an obsession with working out (Jen is a BOSS fitness instructor!).

More importantly, we both share a passion to honor God with the talents He has given us —to model a strong work ethic and balance for our children, and to use our businesses as an extension of His love toward others through teaching, training and other modes of empowerment.

Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:20-21.
