Blue Wildflowers Pop-Up
This week I am excited to share some AH-mazing photos from our blue wildflowers pop-up! Earlier in the year, we got the 2022 and 2023 Model Teams together to do a bunch of shoots when all the gorgeous flowers were in bloom. The PNW is so beautiful, especially during the Springtime. So I knew we had to take advantage of the season while we could! And we had so much fun!!! Scroll through to the bottom to see what we got up to!
Loving the Cold Colors
Our wandering took us to a small field near my house full of bright wildflowers and foliage. For this shoot, we embraced the cold hues we found there: greens, blues, and purples. Many of our shoots naturally have warmer tones, often seeing reds, pinks, and oranges, so this shoot was unique! There may have been colder colors all around us, but the weather was nice and warm! The awesome summer sun peaked through the wild hydrangea bushes and tall trees, making for the best light! The girls played in the branches and used the nearby fence as a prop to help pose with. It looked really really good in the photos!
Corsets and Jeans
Each of the girls prepared two looks for our session. They started with their cute springtime outfits, then they changed into some fun corsets we picked out from the AHP Style Closet. The corsets matched the field perfectly! They were purple, white, and blue, detailed with butterflies and flower stitching. Walking around in the tall grass, they looked like a Model Team of fairies!! Next time we will have to bring some wings and make it a themed shoot! Too fun! The girls paired their tops with light flowy skirts and multi-colored jeans. We are just loving this jean style right now! It is so cute and so trendy, especially when the patches are pink!
Pop-up shoots give the Model Team and me the freedom to play and switch up our styles! For the girls, this can mean bolder outfits and makeup that they don’t usually get to wear in their everyday lives. For me, it means artsy edits and cool effects in post-production. While we still do our normal posing and prep, these pop-ups bring so much fun into our sessions! It also lets the girls think on their feet and explore different angles in front of the camera and use naturally occurring props. The girls come up with such unique ideas!
