Styled shoots are a huge part of Petite Seats’ marketing plan. With each shoot I plan an elaborate storyboard to explain each aspect of the shoot. For this shoot the theme we selected was enchanted forest. Being that I live in a heavily wooded area I was excited about the prospects of a woodland theme. As with any shoot I set the bar pretty high for myself. I love to work with vendors who do the same, so my vision can blend with theirs flawlessly. All went well except vendor I used for the costumes. In short the custom costumes made looked like my five year old created them and I basically lost $500.
Let us paint the picture for you . . .
Imagine you're on a nature walk on a brisk fall afternoon, you are deep inside the cool clasp of the lush forest. As you walk slowly the sun peeks through the branches overhead. Twigs snap as inquisitive chipmunks chase each other; high above birds chatter. You stop. As you stand quietly on the moss and fern lined path you hear the soft murmurs of voices. You listen then decide to move farther into a small clearing in the trees. What do you see?! It’s a gathering of mythical forest children… a gnome, a nymph, elves, and you even see the glistening wings of a fairy. You quietly hide behind a large oak tree and watch. They are having a celebration. Each is sitting on moss cover wooden chairs at a table set for royalty. The table is adorned with ornate colored glass stemware, rustic copper flatware, and a prominent wildflower centerpiece that seems to be sprouting of a tree trunk.
