Yesterday completely got a way from me. Like completely!
I was running around all day trying to find items for a styled shoot (one of my freelance gigs) and then came back, styled it and started taking photos. Almost immediately after I started shooting, a storm rolled in. Which meant that natural light was basically non-existent – it was nearly dark outside.
I took photos anyway. They were horrible, but there wasn’t really anything I could do about it.
After I finished editing all the photos (again, still awful), I took a break and noticed that it was suddenly sunny on that side of the house again. So, I decided to start fresh and reshoot all of the photos. Mission accomplished. The photos were much better the second time around. But when I finished editing and writing that article, it was after midnight.
Which means…I didn’t have time to put together the post I had planned for today because I was working so late on that other project. The crazed life of a DIY blogger. Not complaining though. I swear.
All is not lost, though, because this give me a chance to share some outtakes from a recent DIY that I created for Project Wedding. Bonus! It involves peonies…
Concept, photography, and styling by Brittni Mehlhoff
They’re mirrored glass mini vases made out of votive candle holders. And I made the small flower arrangements with peonies (blogland’s favorite flower), tulips, wax flowers, calla lilies, and pink dianthus.
