Around this time last year I was 9 ½ months pregnant, I had officially left my full-time job and was tirelessly working on the launch of my website. And then this disc filled to the brim with gorgeous images arrived from Bradley James Photography. It was the first project we worked on together and the start of a beautiful new friendship. My vintage tea party.
Friends, I am thankful for the start of this journey, for the promise that 2014 brings and all the amazing new people 2013 brought into my life.
The shoot was inspired by all things vintage, delicate and romantic. It aimed to capture the soft elegance an afternoon tea, inspired by the floral wallpaper and combined with shades of pink, peach, mint and aqua.
“Posy and pearls
Amethyst and gold
Forever you and I
Our precious love to hold.”
“The fine china cups
are filled with the brew.
There’s lemon and sugar
and sweet cream, too.
But, best of all
there’s friendship, between you and me.
As we lovingly share
our afternoon tea.“

This shoot was also featured earlier this month on Burnett’s Boards as a beautiful bridal shower inspiration, which I was pretty excited about. I hope you enjoyed and are having a great week!0
