Boho Sunflower Styled Shoot – Rock Hill, SC Photographer

So what do you get when you combine a field full of sunflowers, two creative photograpHERS, two wonderful models, an awesome assistant and some great vendors?  Magic!  Every year I like to come up with a stylized shoot to get my creative mojo going.  Last year’s theme was ‘whimsical tea party’, this year I opted for something a bit more laid back.  The thought of a field full of beautiful sunflowers came to mind and I envisioned a bohemian woman walking amidst the blooms.  So I began my research and found that there was a nearby sunflower field so my planning began.  I got my sister, Olivia and good friend, Zaakira, on board as models (because two is always better than one right?!) and then began putting together my vendor list, which included some amazing accessories from Etsy shops.  The vision in my head was finally coming to life!  I told Sirena of Aneris Photography, who I’ve gotten to know very well over the last few months, about my upcoming shoot idea and she loved it and wanted to participate alongside me.  She got in touch with Swank Desserts located in Charleston who agreed to supply some delicious (and beautiful!) sweet treats for our shoot.  Things were coming together in a wonderful way!

The last couple of weeks were spent getting final décor items and Sirena and I discussed plans for the set up, etc.  I had my model fittings a few days prior to the shoot and then the time finally arrived.  We opted to make a fun girl’s weekend out of it and all of us spent time gabbing, eating some great food and discussing the upcoming shoot the night before.  We probably stayed up a little longer than we should have, but your art is worth suffering for, right?

The day of the shoot everything went perfect from start to finish.  Even I can’t believe it all ran so smoothly.  From waking up at 5am to go get the make up done by Brenisha of Estilo by CX, to the two hours we spent in the field creating gorgeous imagery, to Lonnie our amazing assistant Periscoping some hilarious videos of our behind the scenes work, to finally enjoying a celebratory drink and some of the delicious layer cake from our shoot, everything was wonderful!  I honestly could not have asked for this day to turn out any better than it did.  We had a dream team of amazing women that made this happen.

Thank you once again for everyone that took part in this project and to help my vision come to life.  I’m already plotting for next year’s shoot!  And stay tuned to the blog over the next few days because I will be spotlighting certain parts of the shoot in separate posts.  Enjoy!
