Dreamy ballet photo shoot in a garden setting.
Photography by David Abel

In the midst of an old Virginia Manor House, where time seemed to stand still and whispers of history danced through the air, our ballet-themed fashion photo shoot, set amidst a dreamy garden, unfolds.

To design this lush greenery and indoor floral garden we worked closely with Darling and Daughters  to create an intertwined set with the weathered grandeur of the Salubria Manor House. Amidst this backdrop of timeless charm our Emilie is wore a long, flowing feather gown that billowed with each graceful movement. Our gowns for this project came from Karen Sabag in New York City.

A Ballet / “Garden of Dance” was the inspiration for this photo shoot but not the traditional idea of what a ballerina should dress like. We wanted touches of ballet that would add to the project’s elegance.¬† From Emilie’s poses and delicate choreography to the flowing fabrics and fluttering feathers.

The beauty of the scene was further enhanced by the presence of all our lush growing florals. Vibrant blooms intertwined with verdant foliage, weaving a tapestry of colors and textures that added depth and dimension to the enchanting garden setting.

The juxtaposition of the delicate ballet theme against the backdrop of the old manor house created a sense of timeless beauty and romance. The weathered blue-green walls served as a stark contrast to the softness and fluidity of the model’s movements, highlighting the past and the present, the traditional and the modern. In the end all the colors, texture and fashion perfectly complimented each other.
