Earlier this spring I spearheaded a small but mighty editorial project alongside my talented photographer friend, Sam. If you've been here a minute you all know and love Sam as much as I do! She captures as many professional excursions for me as she does personal milestones, each project always captured more beautifully than the last. What a gem she is in both business and life!
The vision for this editorial shoot was inspired by my love of spring and the muted color tones and delicate nature of the season. Even more appropriate though was the timing of spring this year and the ‘rebirth’ this season seemed to bring after more than 12 months of devastating loss in the wake of the pandemic. The tones and textures incorporated here are meant to be soothing to the eye and inspiring as a whole, much like the first sign of spring in the garden, the first day where the outdoor air finally smells warm, and the first day when the sun lingers a little longer in the sky each evening. Or better yet, I wanted these images to feel like it felt those first few days when we realized just maybe our world was shifting back into a better and more familiar version of life.
Bringing editorial projects to life in the comfort of my home is both a challenge and delight I welcome with much gratitude. The seamless backdrop provides an opportunity for a clean 'slate' in which the subjects of the shoot can shine but more so, allows me the chance to get creative with the details but without the distractions and restrictions of my surrounding environment.
Oh! Should we start with the inspiration board I created for the project?
