Sometimes I am so wrapped in my brain that I forget to look outside my box. For some reason, on this particular day, my head popped up outside the box and I immediately texted my friend Anne and asked if she wanted to do a photo shoot with me. Anne aka Trixiepix.com is an amazing photographer and loves all things nature, opera and tea. She is a graceful yet vibrant woman, which is reflected in her photos. She has just release the first edition of The Tea Drinker, a stunning booklet about tea, food, and other fun goodies.
After I texted her, she readily agreed and we started excitingly sending each other ideas into the late hours of the evening. Both of us anxious to hear what the other had to say. A date was soon set. I mean really…like in just a few weeks we pulled this all together.
We met at my house, I had pulled out all my teacups and saucers, and Ann had brought some of hers. Then the fun began, because even though we had texted each other ideas, we really just went with the creative flow. No real planning, just building ideas on the fly. Two creative minds at work…well really three as our mutual friend Heidi was there as well. I had purchased a variety of flowers with no plan and it all just really worked out perfectly.
Anne took hundreds of pictures and I took a lot too. Oh man, does she have the talent for seeing things through the camera lens. My pictures are nowhere near as good as hers. I’d be jealous if I didn’t like her so much!! She really made the flowers look fantastic.
So here are a few of the pictures that were taken. Anne is still editing. I can’t wait to share more with you.
