I love when I nearly forget about a work project, and then I’m pleasantly reminded about it months later and I’m able to share my favorite outtakes! I never quite forgot about this day, though. I’ve been itching to share these photos with you. They were waiting in a folder on my desktop labeled WORK TO BLOG; just waiting for the OK! Naomi was a tiny baby and I brought along a babysitter who either lounged with Naomi on a blanket in the shade of these centuries-old trees, or sat with her in the car with the windows open. I took several nursing breaks. With NO warning, a summer rain & thunderstorm blew in, and the tabletop I’d designed for hours (and had yet to be photographed) was nearly ruined. We got drenched, the table was soaked, and we used our bodies to protect Sally and her husband’s equipment. But, the storm left us as swiftly as it had arrived, and because of Lori’s resolve, we were able to save the table and these images resulted!
I was so incredibly honored to work with Lori at Wild Green Yonder & Sally Pinera on this beautiful project. We were styling & documenting THE CREATIVE PROCESS, and a lovely little feature was just printed in Volume XI of Belle Lumière. The sketching over tea, the gathered inspirations, the textures, the mood board. The flower picking and careful arranging. And then the setting of the table and the friends gathered ’round.
This is one of my favorite creative jobs thus far; the images Sally captured are just perfect, and Lori’s florals are so moody and wild and free. Fields of Flowers is a local – to me (in Purcellville, Virginia) – flower farm and I cannot wait to bring the girls there for the first time this season in a just few weeks! Hope you are inspired to go outside and create something beautiful!
