We created Bow & Arrow Magazine to be both an outlet and challenge for ourselves, and a resource and guide for others. The video above shares more about Bow & Arrow Magazine, and the video at the bottom gives you a closer look at our group of four.

Jaclyn

Jaclyn

A natural explorer, this girl enjoys new and unique experiences, always with her camera by her side. From repelling off of 20-story buildings to navigating the caves in an abandoned brewery, she craves adventure. After studying visual communications at Iowa State University (go Cyclones!), Jaclyn moved to the Twin Cities to pursue a career in photography. From photojournalism to fashion, she loves it all. In her free time you can find her discovering Twin Cities cuisine, salsa dancing around town, and dreaming about future travels.

Katie

Katie

Katie’s mom has always told her, “If you feel good in it, you look good in it.” This phrase continues to play a pivotal role in her style. In kindergarten, Katie was the girl that wore the 101 Dalmatians outfit, matching beret included. Although some may not have been fond of her favorite birthday gift, that didn’t bother her one bit. Her unique appreciation for fashion grew throughout the years and led her to major in Apparel Merchandising. After college, she landed her dream job at a modeling agency. Working there inspires her every day. When she’s not doing something fashion related, you can find her at the lake, taste testing all the chocolate chip cookies Minneapolis has to offer, or cuddling with her parents’ dog, Chloe.

Laura

Laura

Laura likes fun. She is curious to a fault, and laughs at her own jokes because she thinks she’s funnier than she actually is. She won’t shake her desire for the limelight (she goes to karaoke almost weekly), and loves food, plain and simple (favorite pairings including chips & salsa, and coffee & dessert). But mostly, Laura is seeking the next big thing while learning what it means to find balance.

Vanessa

Vanessa

Layout and design are this girl’s bread and butter. Bread and butter are also part of her hearty, daily diet. Vanessa moved from Buffalo Lake (try finding it on the state map without using the index) to St. Paul, MN to get a degree in Communications and Journalism from the University of St. Thomas. She’s more into St. Paul than Minneapolis, prefers late nights to early mornings, takes her coffee with cream (no sugar), and has an addiction to Target that ought to be seriously diagnosed. When she’s not working on design for Bow & Arrow, she’s out ordering pho with her husband, pinning images of Beagle puppies on Pinterest, or catching up on episodes of The Voice and The Bachelor.
