5 Photo Shoots you'll want fresh flowers for and why

Aside from the obvious answer, flowers enhance everything, here are 5 specific shoots you'll want blooms for and how to make the most of them.

1. Maternity

Oh how she glows! We're seeing floral and fauna added to maternity shoots not only to enhance the glowing mama, but as a symbol of birth. (Remember the Beyonce shoot?!) Think floral crown, floral back drops, and floral installations. Bonus: Mama can take home the flowers and enjoy them for the coming days ahead. 

2. Holiday photo mini-sessions

Although trends and videos make it look effortless to put together a mini-session photo shoot, we know the hard work photographers put in! Leave lasting impressions as each family member opens their holiday card, to read your seasons greetings in seasonal greens!

3. First Cake /Cake Smash

Is there a more photographed day of your babies first year earth side? Instead of all the relatives tripping over one another to take the photos as parents try to take in the special moment, photographers are helping capture these moments! This is one of our favorite trends right now and adding a sweet fresh flower crown, or floral backdrop will "sweeten" up the photos for you and babe.  If babies breath is not up to babies standards, a fresh flower cake topper will add fun flare before it's smashed.

 4. Pregnancy announcement

One thing couples fret about the most is how and when to announce pregnancy / adoption.  It seems to be all about the social post after the intimate family announcements. We adore the photoshoots parents have as a keepsake to hang in babies room. Bonus: Pre-plan sex reveal of baby with matching blooms along side the planned announcement for a hint or lasting keepsake of the party. 

5. Pets

Is there anything cuter than a pet in portraits?! We're gushing over photos we've seen recently of pets in blooms! Picture floral collars and garland leashes...oh my! For all the parents of fur-babies everywhere.. this one is for you.
