Hydrangea Series:  Behind the Scenes

April 26, 2017

As the wedding season heats up and I have found myself surrounded by flowers every weekend, I have been so looking forward to shooting the next flower series for our Fine Art Print collection. I have often been asked to do a Hydrangea series, a flower so well loved because of its astonishing color hues, large generous blooms and its longevity both in fresh and dried arrangements.  I particularly love the variated shades of blue, which range from a delicate lilac to duck egg that fades into…

In the Land of Jasmine: J.Crew Challenge

April 25, 2017

Julia generously tagged me in the “J.Crew Challenge,” and sent me this lovely top to style.  Amidst the beauty of Charleston’s spring, where white Confederate Jasmine is in full bloom, it was easy to show off the fun pop of color and graceful swing of this off-the-shoulder top in front of these fragrant blooms, spilling over the walls and gateways of my city’s historic downtown.   I also love JCrew’s rattan straw clutch (inspired by Julia’s love of wicker bags) and found it the perfect match for this spring top…

April 24, 2017

Tea Party in Hampton Park

April 21, 2017

We feel so lucky that Hampton Park is only a short walk from our home; we visit nearly every day.  The park is so quiet, well-maintained, and is constantly bursting with new color and floral inspiration. We enjoyed spectacular camellias throughout the winter months, and spring brought on a wonderful display of azaleas. It might be my favorite spot to shoot in Charleston — the light never disappoints.  I am always looking for good shade and radiant backlight, and the oak trees provide favorable conditions somewhere in…

Tutorial: Moss-lined Hanging Baskets

April 18, 2017

We were so excited to bring home some hanging baskets of bougainvillea last week.  I am really drawn to their sprawling nature and fantastic colors (I think we all are!). We decided to place the retention pot that they came in inside a more traditional hanging basket, and to soften the “new” feel of the basket with moss, all purchased at the same garden center. They were so simple and easy to install on the porch and we could not be happier…
