Style Me Pretty: A Secret Loft Garden

Ahhh!! It’s been sooo difficult to contain my excitement about our photoshoot that is featured today on Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book Blog! Back in the winter, I had lunch with Grace from Vale of Enna Floral Design and photographer Kenny Nakai, who had recently moved into their fabulous new studio space in Lincoln Park. Uhm, hello-what-a-perfect-place-for-a-photoshoot!! There are a ton of pics in the SMP feature and even more eye-candy in the Gallery, but here’s one that’s not in there:

Grace and I, tired and happy after hours of tweaking and perfecting :)

Here is probably one of my favorite shots. I am OBSESSED with the hanging mirrored table number!

I can’t even explain how tricky these bubble shots were to pull off!! But I saw it in my head and was determined to bring it to life. It involved me standing on a tall chair, ungracefully huffing and puffing, while Grace fanned the bubbles in the right direction, all while Kenny snapped a million shots! But totally worth it :)

Another one of my favorite details were the mirrored escort cards in the glass globe holders with a dainty ranunculous bud.
