Roses and Peonies, Oh My!

Goodness! How do I describe my excitement about this photoshoot??? Martha Butler, The French Potager, in Downtown Bay St. Louis, MS came for a personal branding session and it was like a dream for me. Imagine! My studio was filled with GORGEOUS roses (my fav) and peonies…but that was not all! As if that wouldn’t be enough! She came with costumes, feather headpieces, fresh flower tattoos and a a fresh flower shrug that Martha made, the largest crown I’ve ever seen and many many more fun things. A photographer’s dream!

If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Martha and having her create the most gorgeous flower arrangements, or other gorgeous creations like the demiarch she made for my Grand Opening that was truly a show stopper, then you are missing out on a true artist’s creation!! She is an extraordinary artist!

When creative people come together it is quite remarkable! I could completely push the boundaries with her and explore areas of creativity that I wouldn’t normally try. If you don’t push and explore, think about what you might miss out on!! I believe this is where great images are born!

Much Love,

Brandi Stage
