We saw this photoshoot on Kelly of {Kelly Moore Photography’s} blog and it was love at first sight! I love the vintage clothing, the hairpiece by {Bella Donna}, the setting, the gorgeous models, oh my! Take it away Kelly…

“I have always had ideas in my head….beautiful scenes that aren’t exactly based in reality. Over the past year, I’ve realized that to make those images in my mind come to life…I have to make them happen! As a photographer, I offer something called a “Give Me Moore Session”. This is a one on one workshop where photographers come spend a day with me to learn my tricks. We spend half of our day on an actual photo shoot. These photo shoots have been so fun because I’m able to take a concept and bring it to life. My stylist/fashionista assistant, Brandi and I have collaborated to make these dreams reality. This particular shoot was first inspired by the vintage simple blue dress that Blythe is wearing. Brandi found it on e-bay for a little bit of nothing, and from there, we pieced together the models, the location, and the fabulous Bella Donna Headpiece. One of Brandi’s jobs here in the studio is styling all of my GMM photo shoots, and she does whatever it takes to make things happen! She stalked both Blythe and Eric for at least a week because she knew they were perfect for the vision we had. Brandi also searched tirelessly for the vintage jewelry, umbrella, bowtie, and accessories that were featured in this photo shoot. Our original location fell threw at the last minute, and by divine intervention, we were able to use our friend Carolyn’s home as the backdrop that made this shoot so special. It was literally meant to be. Once the styling and location were set, my job was easy! My GMM student, Pascale Wowak and I were able to have fun and create beautiful images.”
