Dreamy Poem Inspiration

hand-lettering, illustration, painting

There is something truly magical about Hidden Oaks. From the second I set off on the long & winding drive, I knew this shoot would be special. When I drove over the final hill & the grove of oak trees, revealed themselves, it was simply breath taking. Inspired by Walt Whitman’s dreamy poem “Day by day & night by night were were together. All else has long been forgotten by me” this shoot revels in the strength, beauty & uniqueness of love. The Lovely Paper Things tie together both the delicate & masculine side of nature with a lovely ethereal flare. Hand-painted gold accents & watercolor painted florals used throughout the suite, mix together perfectly with the real wood, real slate & more strong earthy materials. Add in the gold wax seals, hand pressed & gold adorned clay leaves, & luscious velvet ribbon, & presto, you have a gorgeous natural blend of beautiful modern simplicity. Hooray! Natural, warm & ethereal, this gorgeous styled shoot left all of us dreamily swooning!
