a little bit of flora…




I just about died when I came across these images by photographer Chaunté Vaughn. The series of test images that Chaunté shot for her portfolio features beautiful little Kayla rocking some amazing floral headpieces. The entire thing is just stunning and looks like it could be pulled right from the pages of a magazine…  — Joy

ps. This is a great example of something I always encourage creatives to do—make self-initiated work that you feel passionate about as it’s the best way to grow your portfolio and show clients what you can do {if you’re not already doing it!}.

  1. These are amazing, but (for some reason) I don’t quite think I could carry this look off. LOL.
    The first photo is my favorite. They give the impression of floral antlers. Simply beautiful.

  2. wow, these are great!
    i completely agree about setting up your own shoots…i do it and those are usually some of my more popular styling shots!

  3. She is so sweet! Enjoy her (mine just turned 9 & 5!!)- This pic series is super cute. I love the flower flourish in each pic…. and the pig tails. Happy weekend.

  4. Oh my! These remind me so much of the wonderful photos by Debra McClinton!
    Do you know of her work? She was wildly creative, unfortunately left us way to young, but her work is still on line to see, check it out!
    Just found out about your blog from the NYT Sunday magazine! : )
