Threads of the Past: Part I

“Love is a fabric which never fades” – Anonymous
I’ve had a very special project in the works for quite some time. I have been working with a bride to design custom fabric flowers for her wedding day. These aren’t just any fabric flowers, the bride chose to incorporate beautiful pieces of fabric from both her mom and grandmother’s wedding dress.
Prior to snipping and clipping away at these very special fabrics, I wanted to document their stand-alone beauty. To do this I called in the help of some very talented photographers, my dear sweet husband and my oh-so-talented sister.
I always enjoy looking at their work and their interpretations of light. I love the way the light dances within the fabric threads, you can just feel the warmth and the history.
The first three photos were taken by my husband, Chris (a.k.a. Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder). He is great at capturing photos in their true light, maximizing the subjects natural beauty.
The last three photos were taken by my sister, Katie. She loves to let the light play with the lens, often yielding warm, dream-like photos.
Stay tuned…I’ll be back soon with the second half of this project. More history, more stories and yes, more pictures.
