The above image is an installation Danika and I created together in my barn studio. We have been working together on a large variety of projects:
Social media curation & visual storytelling including the Instagram launch
Wix web design including a complete redesign of previous website & revamping the logo
Custom photography, styling & prop rentals
Floral design from concept to execution
Product line development concepts
As a part of the in house floral team, we would create arrangments twice a week to be placed all around the Inn. Often blooms were just cut from the garden on the grounds. Bees still buzzing on blooms. It was so special to pop out to our little cutting garden for a bit of something special to finish off an arrangement. My favorite days were during peony season when we were able to go out to the formal garden to cut bursting blooms. After the birth of my son, the commitment no longer made sense for our family. It was a wonderful experience and a fantastic way to learn floral foundations, techniques, and the rich history of the inn.
The above image shows the Shelburne farm arrangement with digitally added roses, dahlias and orchids. This technique allows for realistic mockups for proposals without the high cost of purchasing the materials. The below image is an example of a landscape mockup to visualize my own personal barn cutting garden goals.
