Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast

It's been almost a week and I'm still coming down from the high of last Sunday. There is something magical about being in a space filled with like minded, beautiful and empowering women; it's a force to be reckoned with. That said, Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast in West Chester provided the most perfect environment for us all to come together.

"Faunbrook is perfect for overnight stays, events, holiday parties, and parent visits to West Chester University — or even a staycation in West Chester, PA. Established in 1860, Faunbrook is a Victorian inn set atop a hill overlooking the wooded 2-acre Brandywine Valley property."

We met in the parlor and got to know each other over champagne, cheese and fruit, while Heather from Something You, On-Site Beauty gave each model 5-star hair and makeup services. For each shoot, we had access to two of their seven incredible rooms. Edith and Isabel.

Both charming in their own way, Edith provided a light romantic and whimsical space with french doors, delicate designs and a huge tub; while Isabel had darker decor, a canopy bed, and vintage lace curtains that decorated the room with it's beautiful pattern when the sun was setting.

We can't thank Lori enough for hosting us at her beautiful inn and we hope to host more events here in the future!


Our next event will be held December 16 at Aframe by Lokal along the Maurice River in New Jersey.

Along with our normal experience, we are now offering an upgraded experience that is perfect for you and a group of your close girlfriends to enjoy! After your session, your photographer will create a short slideshow of your images. Choose your favorite to have printed as an 11x14 on-site. When everyone is finished their session, enjoy an encaustic workshop with local artist, Leah Macdonald. You will learn, first hand, how to create a painting from your beautiful photograph, using beeswax, stencils and acrylics to create your own one-of-a-kind piece of fine art to honor your experience with us and your beauty.

Welcome Letter

What began as one simple request by a dear friend for a boudoir shoot, quickly transcended into a new incredible venture for us! From finding the most perfect backdrops at the City Hall Grand Hotel in Williamsport, to hesitantly advertising for a few extra raised hands to join us, we created a therapeutic experience for ourselves as well as everyone else who joined us that day. We never expected the kind of feedback we received!

Our idea was to make women feel good about themselves; our wildest dreams were to create a body positive and powerful experience that made everyone that stepped into our common area bask in the limitless diversity of beauty! Our wildest dreams came true... One of our participants even said this has helped her relationship with her spouse! That brought tears to our eyes because it was more than we ever could have asked for.

After we came back down from the incredible high we were on, we created She Shines as an effort to expand this venture. Now we are on a mission to chase that feeling of excitement and empowerment and we hope you enjoy the ride with us. Follow site and social media platforms to keep up to date on our portfolio and upcoming events and opportunities!

Warmly,

Keeley & Erika
