I'm incredibly excited to share this shoot with you today. It was a cold day in January when we were in our mudruckers and hauling items out into the snow and then covering our tracks with rakes and shovels. A beautiful dusting of snow had hit Central Illinois and my dear Felicia Geise and I had wanted to do an outdoor shoot at her parents home with a cool and soft winter theme. Inspired by Pantone's color of the year, Ultraviolet and combining it with some cool and refreshing winter hues - I love how this shoot came together. Anemones, sweet peas and the lisianthus were all specially sourced just for their day in the cold. The barely-there purple hues in the bouquet are just the sweetest.
The soft touch of lace and those barley pink roses take the cake along with the anemones.
Isn't that floral hoop just the most adorable ? The astilbe poking up on the left side as an asymmetrical touch is my signature look. I love everything to be balanced and cohesive, but everything asymmetrical just makes me all giddy. I feel like this whole scene just feels like winter - and trust me shooting that day felt like winter. Big hugs to Amanda my second in command for helping out on this as well as Licia's sister Cecelia for helping out and holding our bouquet for us. You guys are simply the best.
