Branding + Social Media LAB | Whitefish, MT Recap

We had such a fabulous time connecting with local business owners, churches, and entrepreneurs this past week at our LAB at the Red Caboose Frozen Yogurt + Coffee in Whitefish, Montana. We get so fired up when we get the opportunity to help others out as they dream, expand and desire to better their way of doing business. The turn out was great. This was a SOLD OUT event and could not have been a better morning.

We had fantastic sponsors:: Delectable Catering who made yummy treats for all of the attendees and The Towne Printer who printed the workbook that each attendee took home with them. The service and quality of products from our sponsors was amazing. Highly Recommended!

Thank you to our sponsors and to those who attended our event. We are excited to see the changes you make to better your business! Thank you for the opportunity to share our passion with you…..

xoxo, kelli & vanessa

JOLT | sweet 16

Sweet 16. Bright Colors. Full of Life. Adventures ahead……

I love this concept that Vanessa dreamt up for the styled segment of JOLT | Dallas. Once again, this is her gorgeous niece Christian, who just so happened to turn 16 and is now a legal driver on the road! She was full of spunkiness as she hopped out of her cute mini cooper……I knew this would be a fabulous shoot!

We’ve got more Q&A’s coming from a few of our favorite creatives… stay tuned!




JOLT | Vintage Girl

Our second model of the day was Christian, who just so happens to be Vanessa’s adorable niece. It was a no brainer for us….she’s in high school, just got her drivers license & a super cute car…..and what 16 year old doesn’t like being involved in a photoshoot?!

Christian ROCKED this session….she’s such a natural, in every sense of the word. Many of our attendees specialized in Seniors so this was a great addition to their portfolios!

Thanks for spending your day with us, Christian! I loved [finally] meeting you!!


When it comes to designing sets for our JOLT creative shops, Kelli & I strive to find models who inspire us and the creative community at large.

In Nashville, we absolutely loved working with our good friends, Elise the author of the inspiring blog Pennyweight & Allister Ann an incredible photographer.

So, for our JOLT | DALLAS shop we snatched up the ever so talented, Emma Dime. One of her many talents is knitting pretty lovelies that are a must for any wardrobe. With the colder season approaching, you must go take a peek at Emma Dime : Knitted … you will thank us later.

For now, allow us to introduce you to our sweet friend, Emma.









This past weekend was truly amazing. It was wonderful to meet such amazing and creative ladies, who truly have a heart for ART and COLLABORATION.

We need to THANK a few people who made this event possible::

JOLT | Dallas would not have been a success without such incredible attendees! Thank you so much for trusting us and for spending your day with us. It was an honor and we truly loved meeting each and every one of you.

Our day kicked off with a delicious boxed lunch by Celebrity Bakery and we stayed nice and cool inside Greg Blomberg’s studio. We were also honored to have the the CEO of WHCC, Mike Hanline, stop in for the second half of our day!!

Inside each and every workbook contained discount codes to a few of our favorite products- so thank you VOL. 25, FORMULA ONE ACTIONS, BUTTERFLYSPARKS and THE 99 PERCENT!

Well, enough of this typing….here’s a peak inside JOLT | Dallas……

We received a few nice words from our attendees too….

“Love love love the JOLT girls! Kelli and Vanessa are simply the real deal. Two girls passionate about life, art and sharing their talents and wisdom with others. After not going to a “workshop” in quite some time, I was ready to get out of my creative “rut”. It’s so important to collaborate, meet with fellow creatives (photogs in my case) and share ideas, issues and advice. This was the perfect, inspirational “shop” for just that. Thank you Kelli and Vanessa for an amazing day and new friendships. Xoxo! –Heather Thorne

“JOLT was an incredible day full of inspiration, motivation, success tips and realizing the importance of being true to yourself! The shooting section was really fun and one of my favorite parts as we watched Kelli in action and Vanessa with her magical styling! Thank you to you TWO for pouring into us and helping us dream big….what an incredible duo and an amazing experience!!” –Ali Wood

“JOLT was what I was looking for and more! I needed a creative boost and some marketing input. This left me reeling with ideas and released the burden of feeling like I have to buy every template out there to be successful. The one on one time was invaluable! It was extremely inspiring and I loved connecting with all of the ladies there! I am still putting into practice what I learned and have other goals that I am reaching for. Thank you for putting together a memorable experience. . .I look forward to a reunion some time!” -Amber Zimmerman
