wild orchid

There are a few beautiful shoots from the end of my pregnancy that never made it on the blog. This clean, inviting bedroom is from a timeless, New England  home I’ll share with you soon.

Today I’d like to talk about styling. Most often I work with the home owner’s belongings to style a shoot. Furniture and decorative pieces may be moved around the home. Sometimes we bring in food or plants or accessories. But in this particular home, we really only needed to move items for the sake of the camera angle. I cannot wait for you to see the rest of the home. It’s so relaxing and inviting with interesting pieces to look at everywhere.

Sometimes I end up with more than one final shot, intending to decide on subtle styling differences during the editing process. For example, above. So if you could please tell me, orchid or no, I’ll pull together the full set to share with you next week. Maybe I’ll even ‘iron’ the bedspread for you… You’re going to love it so much, you’ll be wishing for a Thanksgiving invitation to this cozy home.

So, which one?

If you’re new here, (or you just don’t remember because it’s been so long), on Wednesdays I open up the comments for you to tell me which view from a recent photo shoot you prefer.   And why.  I love hearing what you have to say.  You can peruse past Which One? features here.

Mom always taught you to share…

    This one is tough. But I think I like the orchid. It breaks up the pillow pile and it draws my eye into the room rather to focusing on the mirror in the corner.

  2. I’m torn on this one, but I think I like it without the orchid. I like seeing a natural element, but I think it looks cleaner without it.

    no orchid…it looks strange in the foreground and screws up my sense of perspective. at 1st i thought it was a pattern on the pillow…

    I like that the orchid ties together the colors of the triangle decoration over the dresser.

    I like # 1 because of the orchids.
