Stealing "Flower" Moments…


Stealing "Flower" Moments…

Flowers make me happy. How could they not?! If I’m having a bad day, buying some flowers and plopping down pretty much anywhere to shoot them is my version of ice cream and chocolate, but without the calories.

So where do you find the PERFECT flowers? I found mine this weekend at The Farmers Market that they have every Saturday morning at The Factory. Anything and almost everything you can imagine is there- handmade soaps, organic vegetables, pastries, dipping oils, flowers, etc. It’s like Christmas!

This weekend I bought my flowers from Tally with Fresh Harvest. She even let me steal one of my favorite flowers from another bouquet. Anyone who understands why I just have to have the “perfect” flower is someone worth doing business with in my book! So I headed out and plopped myself on a hot drive out in the country armed with bottles of water and baby oil of all things. (I’m testing my theory of using baby oil in the place of water, to create “water” droplets. So far, I think the main difference is that I walk away smelling…. well, like a baby.)

Here are some of my favorites…. :)

    I don’t know how you do this, but it is breathtaking!!!! I remember the very first photo you showed me years ago…it was a field of wildflowers. You had just started seriously taking pictures. I knew you were going to be successful :)
