Octane’s Holiday Photoshoot

We are passionate.
We are strategic.
We are creatives.
And we’re women.

These words became a mantra over the past year as Octane sought unique collaborations that became deep friendships and unshakable sisterhoods that took a life all its own.

It’s truly greater to gift than to receive.

Recently Octane hosted its first ever partnered vendors photoshoot as a way to collectively create holiday content but also take a moment to gift some ‘woman to woman’ self care before the hustle and bustle of the season, where we too often put ourselves last.

This was an opportunity for us to uniquely celebrate who we are, exactly where we are.

As I began to share this ideal photoshoot, more jumped on board linking arm in arm with me to uplift women doing incredible things together. It filled me to watch so many people lovingly surround each of them in ways they didn’t even know.

From getting glammed up to crafting and opening presents under the tree, this full day was worth every minute of surprises, laughter, dresses, headshots, convos and food.

We’re just a bunch of Kentucky girls, barefoot in our passions, striving to be our best selves.

We didn’t ask permission.
We didn’t water it down.
We hold each other accountable.

Let our bond, be our crown.
