“Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples – it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too.”
For this shoot, we let our imagination take flight. We wanted to fully celebrate fall because fall is coveted here in Minnesota. As the leaves fall and the colors change, weekends are spent meandering through the orchards, searching for the sweetest apples and savoring the aromas of a freshly baked apple pie.
Our vision was to celebrate fall, in a non-orderly fashion. We wanted to bring more of a whimsical feel to the orchard, using brighter colors and less of the yellows, oranges and browns that fall can bring about. Our goal was for the shoot to feel “fresh,” full of life and imagination. We created the mint & apple red color palette and added in a rustic elegance with the wooden table, chairs and crates. Added elements such as the scales, balloons, straws and linens gave that whimsy feel we had wanted. We gathered a variety of elements and collaborated to create a cohesive piece – it’s a bit like a modern “Alice & Wonderland” set up with a Snow White twist. I love the playfulness it represents, while appealing to the aesthetic of the farm.
We used apples freshly picked from the Apple Farm and brought in homemade mini apple pies. Let’s just say once the shoot was over, it wasn’t long before those plates of donuts and pies had left us feeling satisfied. Enjoy!
