Jesse Maria

Jesse is one of the coolest people I know. She is the kind of girl that just makes you want to be her, even before you know her. She is beautiful inside and out - kind, smart, talented - and she has an unbeatable knack for style and originality. Every time I see her I want her outfit, her hair, her shoes. She worked with us doing styling/hair/makeup on several shoots for the site before she jetted off to LA, and I am so grateful I got the chance to work with her (and secretly can't wait for her to come back to Nashville!). Missing you, Jesse!
