Bentonville Film Festival 2015 - Sponsor's Village 1 of 5

I had the privilege to be a photographer for a few local vendors and sponsors during the Bentonville Film Festival in Spring 2015. It was really exciting to go to all of the events happening in Bentonville and around Northwest Arkansas. One of the best things was to be able to be in on all the action that was taking place and witness first hand the BFF festivities! The best part was meeting the brilliant film makers, producers and directors of the films that were being screened in NWA. There are are a few posts of the work I did at Bentonville Film Festival. Look for the link at the end of this blog to follow the links! -Kaity

The Beauty Lounge at Compton Garden was the main attraction! There would be lines outside the door every morning before the doors even opened!

There is a whole post just for the Dove Beauty Lounge!
