In Bloom: Floral x Floral Styled Shoot by La Fete & Green Apple Photography

By Tessa Woolf March 24, 2014

It's the first official week of spring (hallelujah!), and what better way to welcome the season than with a cheerful, floral-filled shoot by Allison Baddley of La Fete and Lindsey Stewart of Green Apple Photography? The friends and frequent collaborators teamed up to create this "Love Elements" photo shoot inspired by bright floral fabric, colorful dahlias, and ripe strawberries.

We love this shoot's playful floral-on-floral concept. A similar flower-patterned fabric would make the perfect photo-booth backdrop for a garden wedding. And how sweet is model Alex Pyne's Kate Spade-like style? Her floral and berry headpiece is a fun new twist on flower crowns.

Allison and Lindsey share their inspiration for the sunny shoot:

This is that time of year where we long for the warmth of sun on our faces, flowers as far as the eyes can see, juicy strawberries, and color---lots of it! We truly believe, as Audrey Hepburn once said, "The happiest girls are the prettiest girls," and this was definitely the case with our beautiful and sweet model Alex Pynes. She embodies happiness. For this collaboration, we wanted to layer fabric and bright floral together because sometimes we are surprised by a love that has been there all along, right in front of our eyes.

We design all of our "Love Elements" photo shoots around three elements for inspiration. But what we really wanted for this shoot was bright, happy pictures! We've been wanting to play with pattern on pattern for awhile---for this floral on floral concept, we really liked the way it plays with the eye. This shoot was all about sunshine, brightness, and happiness. 

Thank you for sharing this styled shoot with us, ladies!

Happy spring, friends!
