Jaimie and I spent the day at her farm foraging, styling, and taking photographs to help her with the re-brand of her business, Leaf and Bloom. Jaimie is a passionate florist with an eye for wild arrangements, incredible blooms, and unique bridal bouquets. I had the pleasure of getting to know her at first when I photographed a wedding she created the floral work for. Needless to say, it was spectacular; and when I shared the photographs with her I just had to mention that I would love to work with her again!
I was so excited a few months later when I received an email that she was re-branding her Toronto based floral company and needed some new photographs for her website and social media accounts. This was one of my first forays into the world of small business branding photography, and it's quickly become work that I feel very passionate about and hope to do much more of in the coming years.
I shot a mixture of film and digital work throughout the day as Jaimie created stunning bouquet arrangements, styled delicate boutonnieres, and put together a beautiful tablescape despite the wild wind we were working with that day. Her dogs roamed the farm around us, quietly becoming part of many of our shots, and we finished the day sitting on the back porch chatting about life and business as the sun finished setting. Since then I've been hooked on branding photography and working closely with other entrepreneurs to craft photographs unique to their business.
I truly can't recommend Jaimie's work enough. In addition to being the most lovely woman to work with, her floral styling work is absolutely stunning, and I always look forward to our next styled shoot together!
