Romance in the Forest

There is something both enchanting and romantic about the forest. I can think of few things more splendid than being surrounded by nature, the scent of the earth, and the calling of the birds. That tree... it was so spectacular that I needed to photograph it!

I had this idea for a table setting in my head for a while and finally decided to do it. This photo shoot was so much fun and my mum was a tremendous help! We actually lugged my coffee table out there in this crazy hot weather. I was in my parents' yard shoveling moss the day before...oh the things I do when I get my mind set on something! As we were driving to the spot to take photos, we were frantically looking for queen anne's lace flowers which had been growing abundantly on the side of the road. We planned on using them in the cloche arrangement. Finally, we spotted some next to a church. Amongst the flowers, we discovered little blackberries! It was as though God was leading us to this spot as the blackberries truly made the arrangement!

Are there any locations that inspire you?

  1. I feel inspired by the clouds. That may sound odd, but whenever there are lots of clouds in the sky, I can't help but see shapes in them. That may sound rather simple and childish too, but I never see the same image twice when I look at a formation of clouds. I see pictures in them; I see art in them. I sometimes get ideas for new images by things I see in the clouds.
