Secret Garden Styled Shoot

I’ve got a thing for styled shoots.

Seriously! I just can’t seem to get enough of them. When I was a little girl, one of my favorite activities was rummaging through the old clothes bin and playing dress up with whatever I could lay my hands on! Now that I’m older, I feel as though styled shoots are just the grown-up way of playing dress-up with your friends. 😂

Most of you saw my first styled shoot last year, the one that featured a GORGEOUS floral crown by TaylorMade Florals along with some cute and cuddly KITTENS! After such a great experience with some seriously awesome vendors, I knew that 2018 would be the year to keep the styled shoot ball rolling. 🏃🏽‍♀️

Not only do these shoots give me the chance to showcase my IDEAL style, but they ALSO allow me to hang out with all sorts of talented folks! 🙌

Like always, this particular styled shoot began as a simple vision. 🧐 I wanted something full of life and whimsical light, all contained in a greenhouse type setting. Greenhouse photography is SUPER trendy right now and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I am a boho at heart, which means I’m all about that crazy, cluttered greenery. 🌿 And so my hunt for the perfect location began! The Greenhouse Garden Store here in Lakeland has been around for years and years, a little hole in the wall spot that is any plant-lover’s dream come true! I knew as soon as I walked in that it would be THE spot for January’s vision. 😍 Once I had my greenhouse/garden nailed down, the element of having a red-headed model was a no-brainer! (Those complimentary colors though 👌) I found my model in no time (the breath-taking Rilee Oien) and then I began to assemble the rest of the team. Joshua Vasquez made my hair dreams a reality, Ciara Liebl made my model glow, and Malindy Elene provided the perfect, literally MAGICAL gowns. ✨ And to top it all off, Veiled Lady Floral designed a bouquet that took my breath away! 😱 By the time Rilee got into the first dress, it was as though we had stepped back in time to some mythical greek garden, complete with our very own red-headed fairy. 🧚‍♀️

It is SUCH a thrill to see creative dreams become reality. 😊 Shoots like these remind me of just how talented and friendly Lakeland is, and how blessed I am to have friends willing to join in on the artistic adventures I throw their way! (Thanks for being so cool guys. 😎) I hope you enjoy this latest project of mine! Any and all feedback is more than welcome. 😊 Love you all!
