Winter Green

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."

So it's about time I blogged this shoot from the end of last year... I've wanted to do a winter bridal shoot for a while so I popped a model call out on my facebook page and another lovely photographer tagged Katie. After checking out Katie's portfolio I knew I'd love to work with her so set about creating a mood board and getting other creatives on board. It's tricky when you're starting from scratch with no contacts in the fashion industry but social media is a wonderful thing and luckily I have lots of friends who in turn have lots of friends and now I feel like I have some fabulous go-to connections to creatives in and around Sheffield.

I wanted to create a winter floral theme with a strong nature influence, initially I'd planned to shoot out on the edge of the Peaks by Higgar Torr and Lady Cannings Plantation but on the day the weather was so terrible we went for plan b which was the Botanical Gardens, our very own indoor outdoor location.

In fact I honestly think this turned out for the best, it certainly made shooting a lot more comfortable for everyone involved and I'm so so proud of the results and the whole team.
