70s Flower Boys


The boys have gone wild with the florals on this 70’s vibe shoot! We had such a great time hanging out with this fun team. Building flower crowns for our male models was especially rewarding because these guys were soooo excited to be wearing them. Hopefully it will inspire more men to connect with the flower world. Wouldn’t it be great if flower crowns were super popular today for both men and women? May my dream come true… Meanwhile, I […]

Enchanted Garden


Oh la la!  So much magic in our gardens, this past summer! So happy that our beautiful farm-grown casablanca lilies were in bloom just in time for this styled shoot with the talented Jessica Hoc, from Lichon Photography. The floral umbrella, held by gorgeous model Holly Brown, was made with wild gypsophilia. How fitting as Holly stands in a field of wild Okanagan grasses, with the umbrella cloud in hand. So fun, watching David Greenwood doing his magic to Holly’s […]

The Wedding Table


When I was a kid, one of the daily chores was to set the table for our large family. Setting up the table wasn’t much fun, but I was always eager to do it because it always beat having to do the dishes. My wonderful mother had a variety of beautiful dishes and table clothes, which made the task more enjoyable. After doing the styling for this shoot, I can now say that I have had a complete change of […]

Botanical Couture & Floral Artwork


My love of flowers, shoes and fashion is being celebrated through these pieces.  The dress piece was created through layers and layers of florals from our Blue Sage Farm gardens. As the layers were applied, the dress went through four season of dress wear before finally settling into the rose garden!  To link this Botanical Goddess to the beautiful Okanagan region we live in, the grapes were added as a final touch. And now on to shoes…  Name me a woman […]
