I was so honored to get to work with these two beautiful models! I first had the pleasure of photographing Blake at the Texas Discovery Gardens and Leonhardt Lagoon in Fair Park. Blake is wearing the stunning Bokeh dress from Bentley and Lace, one of my favorite designers! It was amazing getting to shoot in the butterfly house and the secret garden! It was a challenge to walk on the Leonhardt Lagoon sculptures in this amazing dress, but Blake handled it so well. I was able to get the shots I had been dreaming of, and we had a lot of fun watching the turtles hang out by the cypress trees.
The second model I got to work with is Kennedy! We shot at Dragon Park which is a small, tranquil, privately owned garden in the middle of the city. Dragon Park is owned by Mark Mahan who also owns Select Salon Dallas across the street from the park. Though this garden is small, it is chocked full of gorgeous sculptures, flowering plants and trees, and fountains. All of those things made it the ideal spot to capture photos of Kennedy wearing a Bentley and Lace gown.
The black and gold Emily gown was perfect for the mood of the garden. I loved how glamorous Kennedy looked in black. Black is a color that most people aren’t fond of on young girls but it was definitely my favorite! The Emily gown is now part of my collection and will be added to my client closet!
We also brought the Bentley and Lace Bloom dress which paired perfectly with my Spring Fairy Headpiece. I hand make all of the headpieces seen in my photos. The detail on this dress is INCREDIBLE! She looked like a spring princess on Easter weekend!
Last but not least, we paired the Bentley and Lace Tillie skirt with this adorable top from Airfish. I just loved this combination and we had a blast with that super flowy skirt. This shoot was truly magical!
