This past Sunday I had the privilege of participating in a wonderful event! The 2nd Annual Natural is Not a Fad presented by Koils by Nature! I had a great time on meeting lots of beautiful folks and seeing some familiar faces again! A huge thank you goes out to the wonderful people who came up and said hello who follow me on facebook, instagram, twitter, etc it was a pleasure to meet you in person!
Just a quick PSA before I get into the photos- I still don’t offer event photography services. Which is why you won’t see very many photos of the program, mainly portraits :) I was a sponsor for this event and in exchange I took photos of the attendees for a possible feature on Essence Online :)
First up, we have the beauty and brains behind this fabulous event- the Founder and CEO of Koils by Nature, Ms. Pamela Jenkins.
Next, my table! I was so excited once I learned that I would be participating in this event so I made sure everything was as fabulous as can be :)
Me at my table!
Huge thanks to Genae, my mom, and Debbie for putting these little info packets together! FYI to everyone who got one- be sure to take advantage of the exclusive offer on the back of your card :)
