I recently heard about the craft store challenge where you go into the floral section of Hobby Lobby or Michaels and take photos using the flowers as a backdrop. You can check them out here. I thought it was the coolest and quirkiest idea, but fake flowers aren't really my thing.
A couple weeks later I was walking through my local grocery store and noticed how AMAZING their live florals were!!! They had a huge display of gorgeous potted plants in addition to their usual section of bouquets! It immediately sparked some seriously intense inspiration!
I tried to focus on my shopping, but as I was in the check-out line all I could think about was those flowers! I legit wanted to buy ALL of them so I could use them as a spring photo backdrop!!! Don't worry, I resisted buying the entire floral department. But when I got home I could not get those flowers off my mind. Then it hit me! I remembered the craft store challenge! didn't need to buy the flowers, I just needed to ask permission to take my model there!
So I put in a call to the store manager and asked them if I could bring my baby girl to take a few photos the following morning (the least busy shopping time). They said "Yes!" THEN I got the idea to take her to a local nursery and do the same!!! And amazingly, they said "Yes!" too!!! Hurray!!!
AnnaReed and I had the most magical adventure!!! It was such a blast! I am so thankful to the 2 businesses that allowed me to do this!!! Her 1st Easter photos are spectacular, and unforgettable!!!
(If you are wanting to try this fun trend I recommend getting permission from the store manager)
