With the snow storm upon us, it feels good to warm things up by dreaming of the colors and smells of spring weather! Don’t get me wrong, I am loving watching these beautiful flakes fall down outside my window but theres something to be said for the smell of plants nesting in soil in a nursery, green fields and pretty little dresses!
The concept for this shoot began with the joining of little girls, gathering for a tea party Beatrix Potter-style in the sprawling meadow of a sixty acre farm. They revel in the excitement of trying on clothes and hats, and whisper about the summer wedding they will be participating in. Indulging in conversation about the Bride, how beautiful she will be, and they dream about what their day would be like someday. There were so many gorgeous photographs from this day (we essentially did two shoots in one) that I felt the need to split them up. Part two coming soon…stay tuned!
Oh it’s so much fun looking at these photos today! It was probably one of the most challenging days of my career to date, but I would do it again in a heart beat. We had huge and amazing vendor support and contribution (see the wonderful list below). Sharyn Peavey captured the day beautifully at The Barn at Flanagan Farm. A big thank you to Emily Carter of Emily Carter Floral Designs for lending us your beautiful models! Sweet babies…
