Faces of Spring: PART I

A few months ago I had a wonderful opportunity to design a few hair adornments for an artist showcase featuring Katherine Weston of Glory Photo.

Here's part I of our Faces of Spring photo shoot:
Soft, delicate, and airy as a mid-March morning, these hand cut silk chiffon petals cascade into a beautiful coral bloom
I loved the way the breezy morning brought out the playful side in everyone.

And then, the breeze stopped long enough to get this alluring pose.
The hand made hair adornments were the perfect finishing touch for the Faces of Spring photo shoot.

It was a pleasure, working with the team of talented individuals who came together for this photo shoot.
