Simple and Elegant Garden Portraits

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.

It was this quote from Nicolas Sparks that inspired KRISTEN LYNNE PHOTOGRAPHY to create this simple and elegant portrait session at the gorgeous venue of MIDDLETON PLACE. Drawing inspiration from the delicate Spanish Moss hanging from the southern oak trees and the beauty and mystery of the blooming secret gardens, she has created an intimate and feminine portrait session featuring a beautiful black vintage gown from GOSSAMER. Kristin says, “Every turn through the gardens revealed another beautiful secret and she lets us in to tell her story. I love how simple and honest it is.

Golden Elegance in the California Desert

Inspired by the natural California desert landscape with touches of golden elegance this editorial shoot by MELANIE GABRIELLE is filled with goodness from start to finish. WOLF FEATHER HONEY FARM in Temecula, California was the perfect backdrop with its gorgeous panoramic scenery. With styling and florals by LAUREN EMERSON EVENTS there is a moody element in the table scape to balance the romantic lace detailing on the stunning SARAH JANKS from THE DRESS THEORY. Beautiful paper goods from THE SCRIPT MERCHANT added the finishing touch.

Organic boudoir session in the outdoors

I’m a big fan of the juxtaposition of a pretty and feminine boudoir session against the rawness of nature. This beautiful session by LAUREN PEELE – perfectly styled by LINDSEY ZAMORA took place at a Hunting Club and takes advantage of the beautiful foliage on display. With a very natural hair and makeup look by RAYVEN WALKER the true beauty of the model really shines.
