vintage; souvenirs, lived and loved in.

random, layers, simple,  sea glass.

splendid, feminine, longevity, victorian, rich in pretty.

sunshine, spring time, fresh, delicate, playful.

story, chiseled, damp with thriving, minimal, mature composition.

patchwork, yummy, gumdrop, subtle, whimsy, smart, cozy.

shapes, lines, crisp, transparent cylindrical

oatmeal, warmth of cool, ribbons and sheers, quiet comfort.

raspberry, brilliant, layered, intentional balance.

If you ask me, nothing says Happy Monday like inspirational images.  I am pleased to share some of my favorite images from famed London photographer, Emma Mitchell.  Her work is rich, thoughtful, simple, and evocative. Photo styling is really appealing to me. I’d love to learn more about it and I play with the idea of it as an arm of my design business (a girl can dream).  I do not have a background in photography, so I lean more towards the idea of styling the shoot over doing the snapping.  I was originally introduced to Emma’s work via set design thinking

Have a wonderful day.  I’ll leave you with an excerpt from the poem I praise you for what is yet to be, by Ted Loder:

I praise you

that you turn me loose

to go with you to the edge of now and maybe.

to welcome the new, 

to see my possibilities

to accept my limit

of passion and compassion


released by joy,

I uncurl to other people

and to your kingdom coming,

for you are gracious beyond all telling of it.
