What makes you beautiful?
This is a love story about the women we know and the women we want to know.
The go getters, the humble souls, the women who inspire us to be the best version of ourselves.
The true goddess who is centered in love and joy.
The women to whom you can relate, who find humor in their own flaws, and who tell it to you straight—when no one else will.
A celebration of beautiful women who shine bright from within.
They don't follow the pack, they lead the crowd.
Their beauty is contagious.
They lead with their heart and follow their dreams.
They balance so much, and they do it with grace and beauty.
They are the true definition of Bella.

What does the word "Bella" mean to you? Beauty, sweetness, romance.
How would you describe your personal style? What or who inspires your style? Gosh, that's tough! I rotate between what I like to call 60s/70s teacher mom and a major tomboy/androgynous style. Some days I'm all middle part, flowy shirt, cropped jeans or floral printed, floaty dresses with my favorite straw hat and another its straight leg boyfriend jeans and a ragland + beanie. I think some of my favorite fashion icons are Jane Birkin, Stevie Nicks, and I have a current/ major girl crush on Alyssa Miller
Tell us a little about how you got started with florals and how Siren Floral Co came to be? I started out planning events and that sort of evolved into a full blown love of floristry that I never saw coming. Once Siren became it's own company, I was all in and it stole my heart.
What or who inspires your artwork? Nature, mostly. And travel // other cultures. I love getting outside and out of my normal to find inspiration.
What is your creative process like? Usually ideas just come to me, or I see something out in nature // my neighborhood that sparks an idea and it just sticks // I can't shake it until I get to use it. But it really depends. Often times for an event, the client or planner may be the driving force behind a design and I just try to add to their vision or hone it in in a way.
How do you spend your free time? Hiking, reading, camping, beaching, coffee ing with friends, gardening.
What are your favorite places you’ve traveled to? What do you love most about traveling? Our trip to Oaxaca last year has got to be one of my all time favorites. The colors and the culture there are just incredible. I also can't get enough of the woods, any type of woods, really-Yellowstone National Park is an all time favorite trip as well. I think traveling just opens your mind and heart up to receive new things. Whether that means inspiration for your creative medium, or just an eye-opening experience with someone you meet along the way. Traveling allows presence. Assuming you're able to shut off from work, it's time to just be and see and feel all that's around you, including the people you travel with and meet along the way. It's rejuvenating in that way I think and reminds you to stay open to all that life has to show you.
What do you dream about for the future? So many things. But mostly some land where I can grow all of my favorite flowers and plants and a garden I can pick my own food from. Lots of animals (yes, even more than I already have) haha and hopefully some tiny humans if that's whats meant for me :)
Can’t live without. . .? My family // critters.
What’s your sign? Aquarius
Beauty is. . . Everything. It's everywhere-in the people you meet, and the butterfly that crosses your path when you walk down the street. It's the hard times and the good times. If you can find a way to stay open to it, you'll find beauty in everything.
We have been given the gift of being able to collaborate with Rachael in so many ways throughout the years. She brings such a light to the set and a magic to the each shoot that is just unimaginable. You can see this display of beauty in our In Bloom lookbook. We are so grateful for this Bella.
