the details & planning of a photography workshop takes many moons & minds to plan & come up with the creative concepts that are transformed into a series of (hopefully) breathtaking photo shoots, that are at once an artistic expression of the artists (myself included) who collaborate to create such beauty & also wonderful education oportunities – it was over a year ago that i began working with an incredible group of GEORGIA PEACHES to help me develop that concepts for A LOVELY WORKSHOP in SEA ISLAND, GEORGIA – fashion stylist GINNY BRANCH & floral stylist AMY OSABA & prop stylist BLUE EYED YONDER – working with these creative girls was wonderful -

GINNY & I spent hours on the phone (girl talk really) about flowers & colors & overall ideas for the photos shoots – one of the first ones we agreed on was something GREEN inspired mixed with the concept of my KISSING TREE – love letters, botanics, leaves, tress, all grounded in a feeling of life & love – BOTANICS – seriously GINNY has the most incredible BOTANICAL PINTEREST BOARD -

i am obsessed with backdrops – when BLUE EYED YONDER said she could make a BOTANICAL BACKDROP that we could place among the moss laden tress i almost fainted – & then with AMY’s real life florals to ice the already bountiful botanic cake – i was indeed smitten – even after our endless talks & mutual excitement there is no way to describe what it feel like to see a vision come to life – it was truly beautiful – a green field full of old growth trees, dripping in spanish moss & there in the middle of it our BEAUTIFUL BOTANIC BACKDROP – a piece of art born out of girl talk  -

a little more sweetness...
