All of this rain has reminded me of a styled shoot that my photographer friend, Sara Harper, and I put together a couple years ago. We rented a table, made a cake and a chocolate torte, I put flowers together and collected china from all over my house...and then it rained. Then the rain stopped and the sun came out with only about 45 minutes left of perfect sunset sunlight. Roller coaster! My friend, Katie, came over to help style the shoot and we got to work. There was a flurry of handkerchiefs, ranunculus, flowered teacups, silverware, the click click clicking of Sara's camera, and it couldn't have been more fun.
And listen, I know the hot colors for the year are coral and mint, and I love those colors...but I also think you can't go wrong with red, turquoise, and a little hot pink!
