Spring Inspired Shoot by Simply Bloom Photography


You know what's funny, blogettes? I have a blogging bucket list. I've always thought bucket lists were rather daunting when it came to life as a whole, but making a bucket list (or rather, a fancy-titled list of goals) that pertain to this little blog here, was totally a ton of fun and really has helped me stay motivated and inspired. One of the things on that list of mine has always been to feature an exclusive shoot and wedding from my most fave photogs of all time, the sweet Christine and Vania from Simply Bloom. Imagine how fabulous it was then, to get this submission from them with news that it would be exclusive to Hey Gorg? I probably celebrated that day with a Starbucks. A Starbucks Venti that is. Then proceeded to tell Christine and Vania that they were already hired for my maternity session (all of this coming from a girl who never wants kids. I've lost my mind).

Enough about me though because this shoot is way too gorgeous for words. The thing about Simply Bloom is not only does every single shot look like something sent from above, but these chicks have an acute sense of style that makes even bunnies, fruits and veggies look downright stunning. Check out some of my fave shots below and to catch more fabulousness from these two head over to the Simply Bloom blog where I promise you find yourself submerged in pure prettiness. Christine and Vania, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I can't wait for you to one day shoot my belly; emphasis on the one day part :)


{About the shoot, from Simply Bloom} When we dreamed up this session we had major spring fever. Everything seemed on the verge of birth. We were inspired by Caravaggio's Bacchus for this spring-themed shoot and incorporated real fruit, a rabbit, and a hand-crafted headpiece overflowing with fruits and extravagant florals - an important element in Caravaggio's paintings. We appropriately held the shoot in an orchard at its flowered peak. While we were working to bring our vision to life, we knew we needed a powerful and meaningful colour palette. Our favorite resource for color and inspiration boards is always Magnolia Rouge; we chose this gorgeous board as a starting point: 

What do you think, guys? Pretty spectacular right? Enjoy your morning :) xo
