Lush Greenery Floating Arch
Our monthly in-studio floral styled shoots are when we are able to explore new techniques and let our creativity run free. For this month’s shoot, we wanted to create something a little bit different from our typical, bloom heavy, design. This maternity styled shoot featuring a floating greenery arch captured our love of creating floral installations as well as our goal to embody a mood through color, form, and texture.
The floating greenery arch used in this maternity styled shoot is 100% foam free and was created with reusable materials. We created the asymmetrical form out of chicken wire that was held together with wire and then hung with fishing line. All three of these products were used in previous designs and will be used again and again. This is important to us because in the past, the florist industry has created a lot of toxic waste. We are passionate about creating as little waste as possible in an effort to create a cleaner and healthier environment for generations to come.
Our Creation Process
For this shoot, we asked our good friend, Valerie, to be our beautiful model. She is a former professional dancer with Richmond Ballet and we both had the pleasure of dancing with her before she retired. Valerie is about to have her third baby and we felt so honored to be able to create this scene and capture this special season of life.
We had a vision of an arch for this shoot to embody the idea of stepping into motherhood. What a magical time of life and we wanted our design to reflect that. The greenery we chose had varying shapes and sizes. We also added greens that were variegated which seem to almost sparkle. It also brought out the whites and creams used in the vases full of fresh spring lilacs and narcissus.
