Wednesday

Dried Nature.

When I invited these two sisters over to my house to dress & style them, I knew exactly where I was heading... but their faces changed my view many times; I needed something drastically different than I'd ever done before. Here are some photos we shot in the bittersweet cold last Sunday evening. We laughed and drank champagne before the shoot as I picked out the girls' outfits before we got to location. I had it all planned out for Allegra and then I took a look at this black dress hanging lonely in my closet and changed her look completely last minute. We really had the best time. Here is the result of our labors.

Concept and Styling by me
Photography by Nathan Adhikari (facebook page)
Models are Allegra && Elena Wentworth.

also... thank you so much to Maria Elyse for mentioning this photo-shoot on her Three Things Monday post!
love, polly

I love the dried hydrangeas in their pretty hair and the muted winter colours that run through them all. beautiful work!x

Zane said...

beautiful photos, they both look just perfect

Maria Elyse said...

Aw, Polly! I cannot get over how gorgeously you styled this shoot! It's really different for you (at least as far as I can tell, since you like bright colors so much) in regards to color, as the color theme here is much more subtle, but I LOVE THAT! ♥ The mauves and creams are beautiful, and the dried hydrangeas in the models' hair is so whimsical. You did a fantastic job, darling! So proud of you. :) ♥

Do you mind if I share some of these photos on mah blog next Monday?

Woaw! I understand, now, why you were talking about beautiful eyes.. And the black dress is just amazing, you looked them in a very beautiful manner (is that really english?!)
Anyway, the atmosphere of your pictures is really representative of this winter, like sunny but very cold light and the colours just fit between each other so perfectly!
You have a wonderful sense of aesthetic!
