My Winter Garden

These photos were from past winter. One cold winter day, me and my husband were thinking of a different type of photo shoot and we decided to show the opposite contrast in the season, so we went out in a windy 20 degree day and planted a sunflower in the middle of a snowy marsh with me wearing only a vintage summer dress. We brought a watering can and my husband's camera and tripod and we braved the very chilly afternoon taking pictures of me watering my favorite flower.....it was differently something unusual to do on a frigid winter day.

Another reason why I did this photo shoot because I've been itching to wear this vintage dress that has great details and pleats. I was really impatient and can't wait for the warm weather, huh! But, I had a long coat to protect me from the cold and wind, and I took off my coat when my husband was ready to take the photo. Wore it with matchy vintage hat and Nine West boots.

One thing that I will miss is sledding with Mr.Freddy. It was so fun to watch Mr.Freddy's face while zooming down the hill.

So, do you have any unusual winter garden tips?

P.S. To those who asked, I'm shooting with Nikon D60. And to everyone, thank you so much for the beautiful comments. Have a pleasant day to all!

That photoshoot is pretty awesome! It looks cool that you appear to be taken from a spring photoshoot and implanted into a winter setting. And of course, adorable pics of you and your son!

What beautiful photos. You guys have a great eye for photography. You are so lucky your husbands enjoys this. I take most of my photos myself with a mini tripod and it sure shows. If and when my husband is home he will take quick photos and jokes about my poses the whole time.

I love the first few photos of you in a summer dress watering a single flower. FRESH! Of course mommy and Mr. F always adorable.

stilettostetico said...

WOOoow AND I simply have to say that this stylish contrast is as strongly mischievous as your presence naturally oozes Sexyness !!! Just like a voluptuous Spring's Allegory beaming through Winter's immaculate Reality . . .
Hope you're Well Dear.

à Bientôt, Antoine

Bunnie said...

I LOVE the concept of the photoshoot. It's so creative and so... ironic? I'm not sure if it's the right word. But even your outfit goes with the whole theme so well! The orange really does POP on a backdrop of white snow!
