Last week we had a very glorious Photography Farm. The weather was amazing for our Summer of Love shoot, themed around our two models Veronica and Craig Dearsley. These two have just had their second wedding anniversary and when we sent over some questions to get to know them a little better, they came back saying the only thing interesting about them was their VW Campervan. Well, we can certainly work with that and so our hippy flower power theme developed. When we do these shoots, I hand over the styling to the utterly brilliant Hannah at The Tea Set who not only creatively directs the shoot but also puts together all the gorgeous flowers. She collaborated with the wonderful Elbie Van Eeden on getting the right look for Veronica and made the flower headpiece. This all tied together the hippy look but of course it always starts with The Dress and this one from The Couture Company was just heavenly. Hannah also called in some ace paper goodness from local company Pearl and Earl and we were over the moon to be allowed to use the new collection of necklaces from Mona Mara. I see the finished results at the same time as the photographers who join us on the workshop and one of my favourite moments is seeing it all for the first time. It is all part of the Farm Magic and I know I am very lucky to be involved in it all.
Thanks to all the people who help me at The Farm and the lovely new Farmers who attended. See a post from one of our attendees Eliza Claire Photography here.
