Lavender and Ivy


I recently had the chance to shoot some portraits that have been in my head for a while and I love the way they turned out. I was able to work with my friends at The Conservatorie who made the head pieces and my great friend Rachel Burney who did the hair and make up for the shoot. Megan Henderson was our model and she nailed it as always! Lastly, a huge thank you to Danielle Broderson for welcoming us into her beautiful home to shoot. Enjoy! Published on Green Wedding Shoes.
