Yesterday I went to a trash the tutu session with Amelia and her friend Jamie Burnett which was a great time, I’m very lucky to have met Amelia here in Birmingham! Ashley, a now retired ballerina with the Alabama ballet wanted some artsy shots of her in her last costume, a spanish inspired red and black number. I was assisting with lighting mostly so I didn’t get any shots but check out Amelia and Jamie’s blogs soon to see what we were up to!
Amelia let me borrow a 17-55 f2.8, the lens I’ve been wanting for a while now so I felt pretty inspired to shoot. Also, I am getting married in 9 months and am inspired to make my own bouquets so I’ve had 2 trial runs for fun. It seems like it would be super hard, and I haven’t been mix and matching at all, just one kind of flower at a time. The first was roses, and I only bundled 4 together because that’s what I had at the time but the second go round were gorgeous purple tulips. I want yellow ranunculus however I would use these for a shoot any day. So basically, hire me to shoot your pictures and you get a floral genius as well. Or, someone who can throw together a bouquet for you to carry around and feel pretty with. Oh, and the flowers? 6.99 at whole foods.
