End of Summer Shoot!

Yessssssssssssssssss! I have discovered a new passion!. Well,..not really new. I have always loved to take photos but this was the most fun that I have had doing so in a while. The day was so lovely and fulfilling despite that fact that two of the girls couldn't make it. The three that did were so perfectly suited to the style and so natural that the shoot went off without a hitch.
It was a very, very warm day and the sun shone down on us unmercifully! I tried to get most of the shots in the shade and even took a few by the water. Grounds for Sculpture is such a beautiful place, I recommend it highly.

All of the clothing, bags and hats were vintage. The two petticoats that Laura( blonde!) wore were so delicate and amazing!

We had to wear wristbands to prove that we paid to get in. Can you spot one?
I bought this dress from the Goodwill for $25!
Our little buddy Winthrop. After much screaming (from him!) M put him safely in a tree.

Secret Garden

People all over the park were gawking and asking questions all day. I Thought that it would be pretty obvious what we were doing, (especially since I had a camera and they were posing for it) but apparently not. We were stopped at least 15 times.

People were also quite interest in M's hair!

I was having so much fun that I nearly forgot to take product shots!

By the end of the day we were all hot and tired. We went back to the cafe and had ice cream!

All of the accessories here are being sold in my etsy shop! You can buy them buy clicking on my shop link to the right.
I will be doing shoots for a few fairy kei pieces on Monday so stay tuned!

Mori inspired shoot tomorrow!

Melissa and her inspiration hair!

After a long day of recuperation ( I had the sniffles yesterday) I finally feel well enough to be excited for the photo shoot that I put together for tomorrow! I was inspired while at Otakon by my friend Melissa's long wavy hair. I was just about to fall asleep when I noticed her unbraiding her long locks and thought to myself:

"That hair would look great with lots of crochet accessories in it, maybe with a woodsy background.....with neutral colours and ribbons and flowers and.......zzzzzz"

Yup, I fell asleep after that. But I never forgot my plans, and tomorrow they will come into fruition!

I borrowed a few girls from work to join in my little shoot (for variety in hair colour and length) and we will be shooting at Grounds for Sculpture!

Because it is still hot, I didn't really want to go into full on mori style. I really look forward to the cooler days when I can however!
I will post our pics tomorrow!
