Summer Flora

Current flowers inspiring me from foraging adventures and my small little garden. Honeysuckle, comfrey, camphor basil, fig, geranium, cat grass. Taking a few moments to play with color and seasonal blossoms can re-inspire you for the season!

It took three tries to get this photo the way I wanted it to be! This is the part of styling and composing that is often ignored or shamed. Embrace play. Embrace starting over!

This is the number one step you need to take to start getting in your flow with styling flowers and photographing them. Embrace that it’s going to be a process, like every creative endeavor.

After working as a stylist for over 15 years (for clients like Kinfolk, Williams Sonoma, and more!) I’ve learned quite a few tricks to getting just the right photos that feel visually effective. I’d love to share my top tips with you and guide you into creating a collection of summer flower photos.

Learn about how to photograph flowers for your floral portfolio in our class that starts on Saturday! You’ll have creative space to play and compose and capture it all on camera! Book your spot in the FLORAL PORTFOLIO BUILDER right here !
