Garden Nursery Portrait Session
Building a community of creativepreneurs
This summer, I celebrated my first year living in the sunshine state of Florida. Relocation itself is hard. Relocating your business...is complete madness! The first months in Florida were hectic. Not knowing any fellow photographers whom I could start networking with was really bringing me down since I knew the importance of building your own little network of fellow creatives and how this would alleviate the craziness of relocation. Then, I met Nelly. And along with meeting some other awesome photographers, my days began shining brighter than the sunshine. She's a creative, joyful and inspiring human being. Meeting her had its purpose and having her as a friend and part of my community of creativepreneurs, is what I call awesomeness! Nelly is a graphic designer and photographer with quite a list of awesome ideas and creativity. Be sure to check out her page and follow her adventures on social media!
I had the opportunity of photographing her...twice. And for this casual session in particular, we went exploring to a garden nursery, specifically Luka's Nursery and Butterfly Encounter in Oviedo.
Planning a Session at the Garden
We literally planned this shoot in two days...two days!! Nelly brought the idea of shooting in a garden nursery and of course, I had no clue on how this would go through since I had never done photos in a garden nursery before. Like, ever! So, I thought to myself; ok, this could be both interesting and a challenge for me, but It's worth a try. My husband then suggested we go to the best garden nursery in Central Florida, and along with his suggestion, came the name of Luka's Nursery in Oviedo. And just like that, it was said and done. This would be the second session I had the opportunity of doing with Nelly and hopefully of plenty more in the future. I'll be sharing all the coolness of the first session soon!
Portrait Photo Shoot
Although it had been a beautiful day, by the time we got to the nursery, it was humid and extremely hot. What can I say...summers in Florida! We went for something really casual, and as for me in particular, I really wanted to capture the essence of Nelly's free spirited and humble personality. We made it short, simple, and unique. And at the end, truly captivating images were captured.
Enjoy, and stay inspired 💜
