Friday Favorite: Shay Cochrane

Foliage Heart

On one of our recent trips down the Instagram rabbit hole (you know how it goes…  You follow someone new and then all of a sudden three hours are gone!) we discovered the wonderful work of Shay Cochrane, product stylist and commercial photographer extraordinaire.

Succulents

They say “a picture is worth a thousand words” and that is so much more the case these days when our attention span is limited to 140 characters.  That’s why it’s so important for small businesses to tap the creative juices of those in the know to make sure their website or their blog truly reflects their brand.  Shay makes this easy with SC Stockshop, the source for fab photos when you don’t have the budget for a professional photographer.

Ranunculus

Poppies

Whether it’s a hero image for your home page or a border you need for your blog, Shay has so many designs to choose from.  We, of course, love her florals and had to share them with you.

Tropicals

Happy Friday and enjoy the first weekend of spring!

P.S.  Don’t forget to enter our giveaway of an autographed copy of In Bloom before Monday – see details on our blog post, Instagram or Facebook.

In the Garden

In the Garden with Sally Green

We spent the day Tuesday with our very talented friend, Sally Green, shooting our flowers and bouquets for our new website and we had such fun.  Sally showed up with her custom vinyl backdrops that look like wood floors or tables in a range of finishes, two camera bags filled with equipment and one small footstool to give her height when she wanted to shoot from above.  Though by day Sally works as a corporate and real estate lawyer, her true passion is photography… and gardening… and raising the most glamorous chickens (along with her two cool kids.)

As you can see by these pictures, Sally’s no stranger to flowers and her garden (which we blogged about here and here) is breathtaking.  She can also arrange the blooms she picks into pretty posies.  As soon as the beds and planters around her French-style farmhouse are filled with blossoms, we’ll be coming over so that she can take our portraits and we’ll finally have a picture of mother and daughters to add to the About Us section of our website.

In an effort to spruce up our office and bring more color to our pale lavender walls, Pauline at The English Organizer suggested we frame pictures of our florals and display them in an interesting way.  For the past three months,  we’ve been browsing websites and tearing out pages of some of our favorite rooms that are enhanced by botanicals.  Now the challenge is choosing our favorite designs to frame!
