Styled Shoot Christmas Tea
You can’t be a wedding photographer and not be gaga over pretty little details! Wedding planning and styling and appreciating all the things that make you smile and feel gorgeous – that’s all part of the job! and sometimes, just to keep those creative juices following, a styled shoot is in order.
In this case, a styled shoot with a theme of Christmas Tea. Teamed with my crafting buddy and fellow photographer, Amber of Two Peas in a Pod Photography, we staged a Christmas Tea in the pines! Ok, it’s in Phoenix, and it’s 100 degrees out, and this is a plant nursery, but the joy of the season, that sharing of yummy Christmas goodies and spending time with friends – those are the best parts of Christmas! Our daughters, models and buddies, Eliya and Mikala enjoyed their private tea party – and could not keep their hands off the pastries!
Little known fact: I used to be an Etsy seller – yup cute hair pieces and hand made clothing for children. I love to sew! For this shoot, I modified two plain velvet dresses for the girls and created the hair pieces. Amber, who does fantastic styling as a newborn photographer, gathered the tea party table settings and linens. I can totally relate to DIY brides planning weddings! Making and crafting and styling are all part of the fun!
