From The Kitchen.

Project 52 ~ Week 22
Theme for this week’s challenge “From the Kitchen.”

I absolutely love having fresh flowers in my kitchen at all times…but it’s even more special when the sweet smelling peonies are in full boom.  So I decided to go to my garden and cut a few to display in this old tea tin I found at a consignment shop about a month ago. It’s from Holland and I love it!  I love the colors and how delicate it is.

When I saw the tea tin at the store, I already had a vision in mind of photographing peonies in it…so the challenge for this week was perfect.  Peonies are definitely a favorite of mine.  What’s your favorite?

Trash The Dress with Nikki.

I had the most wonderful opportunity to finally do a session I’ve wanted to do for awhile.  It’s called a “Trash the Dress” session.  A very popular session with brides after their wedding day is over.  Will you ever wear your wedding gown again?  If not…have some fun with it.  Contact me for more details if you would like to trash your Wedding gown or even Prom gown…I promise we’ll have a great time!

Let me introduce Nikki who made this session spectacular!  Not only is she so beautiful…she is very brave!  She went into the ocean as the sun was going down and that water was freezing!  Well at least to me…we’re talking around 55 degrees!  As she was walking into the water I just kept on saying, “Mind over matter Nikki”…you’re going to have some wonderful images to remember this special time.  She agreed and kept on walking…smiling the entire time.  Nikki enjoy your images for years to come and thank you for our time together I will never forget it.
