Pine Cones at Gina's

A couple weeks ago Gina Weathersby invited a few people over to her new photography studio.  Stepping into Gina's studio is like entering a beautiful dream.  The airy, light-filled space is chock full of amazing objects and everywhere you look something interesting catches your eye.  Vintage china, wedding dresses and fabrics, antiques, fresh flowers, and random ephemera and baubles abound.  The space and its contents are lovely and reflect Gina's personality and eye for beauty.

The day of my visit Gina was doing a photo shoot for fellow friend and graphic designer, Lisa Ballard.  Gina, Lisa, and stylist Nora Martini were working to create a look book for Lisa's new line of wall hangings and pillows, Mod Botanicals (check it out here).  I was super excited to watch how Lisa, Gina and Nora interacted to create such magic.

Throughout the shoot these pine cones kept catching my eye. I loved the varying textures and the contrast with the metal plate and bowl. One could easily spend the entire day "playing" in this space.

Below are a few photos of Gina and Nora working their magic.  I got a sneak peek at the look book last Monday and it is amazing.  As soon as it is available I will post a link.  You can currently purchase Lisa's wall hangings and pillows at her shop here

After painting ensos with Frank in the morning, visiting Gina's studio in the afternoon and catching a plane for another meditation retreat I was one tired girl.  But I went to sleep that night with a smile on my face, feeling lucky to have such incredible experiences and to know these amazing people.
