Release the Butterflies Part One

     Any opportunity to work with a unique and fun prop or accessory to help style a shoot is an opportunity that I'm always up for. Recently I had the pleasure of working with a few different butterfly-style crowns and head pieces that were such a blast to incorporate into the images. The perfect end to the summer season, with the weather still warm and green colors still vibrant, these were the perfect accessory to capture a bit of the fun summer season with.


     These pieces are gorgeous in color and amazing in quality. Each crown is sturdy, bright, and perfectly textured for a bit of a fantasy flair addition to the images. Pastel pink? Yup. Bright baby blue? Yes! Classic monarch butterfly orange? Of course. With life-like flexible butterfly pieces each crown is easy to stylize according to the needs of each shoot. You're only limited by your imagination when working with accessories like these.

     As I've written before, I think that Etsy is such a great place for artists and crafters to connect and work with each other. I found these pieces while scrolling the site earlier this summer and they immediately caught my eye. The pairing of a casual summer dress or something just a smidge more fancy on a warm day just makes perfect sense. How about a forest spirit or dryad? Really pushing the fantasy scene to the limits.


     Imagine a scenic picnic on the last of the warm days this year. Grassy fields extending for miles towards the foothills, sunlight creating beautiful flare and in every direction. Sitting on the warm grass, remembering the summer season surrounded by thoughts of butterflies floating through the air. A genuine scene full of color and dreams.

     If you like what you see, check out the links below and you'll find the Etsy shop where you can get your hands on crowns just like these ones. If a fall shoot with one of these pieces sounds like something you'd like to be a part of (the orange piece immediately comes to mind) consider a fall portrait session and request the butterfly option. We can tailor your session to create whatever scene that you can think of, the possibilities are endless. Call or email anytime and let's get started!
