Heart of Gold Apparel {brand shoot}

I LOVE the designs that Nelz comes up with her Christian lines of tees Heart of Gold Apparel. "Not your average faith based tees" is exactly right! I have been eyeing her brand for awhile now and when I got this idea to use this graffiti wall outside of a beautiful church here it was a match made in heaven :) Nelz agreed to the idea and we got busy planning her shoot.

We wanted to make sure you could still read her bold designs but incorporate the fun colorful look to her brand that I think kids should be wearing. I mean... joy and happiness is what kids are all about and why not wear it on your shirt that you are "Wild About Jesus"?!

What I also love about her brand is the positive energy it has surrounding it. My kids wear her tees a lot now and they get stopped by strangers that say they love Jesus too or many ask where they can get a tee just like it. I would say they are walking ad campaigns for her brand...and for the love children have for learning about Jesus :)
