Hello friends! As some of you may know, I was fortunate enough to spend a semester of my senior year of college in Siena, Italy. By the time I graduated, I was so madly in love that I decided to go back. So, while studying for my M.A. at Johns Hopkins SAIS, I spent a year in Bologna (the city of students, dogs, and absolutely amazing food) - a life experience that I cherish with every bone in my body and wish upon my children some day.
When I was thinking of styling this shoot, I was inspired by my experiences in Italy and what I had seen while living there. I remember beautiful shop windows filled with magical little things as well as the beautiful presentation of flowers - how perfect they always seemed whether they were in a floral shop or some little alimentari (grocery store). I imagined what my shop would look like if I had one in Florence, and I came up with this shoot. I hope you enjoy this as much as Angie Cao, Valerie Teele, and I had fun putting it together!
