Developed from a scene of innocence this shoot by NINA RUTH PHOTOGRAPHY was inspired by a painting of a maidens gathering blooms amidst bountiful fields. It struck something inside the heart - a manifestation of the undeniable presence of love one experiences when in France. This was photographer Christina’s first trip to France and an opportunity she knew she needed to make the most of. She took a chance on herself and a leap of faith in asking other wonderful businesswomen to do what they each love most. Captured at CHATEAU D'AZY it was styled by MAJENIA DESIGN and incorporated gorgeous florals by JAUNE PIVOINE and a stunning gown by French designer RIME ARODAKY. I always love the work I see by hair & make-up artist ONORINA JOMIR BEAUTY and this is no exception - with a delicate gold headpiece by MOOD AND MUSE BOUTIQUE complementing the relaxed up-do perfectly.

More than just a collection of beautiful photographs, this editorial allowed strangers to come together and create. Each one a little unsure of their gift, but through vulnerability were able to unveil their greatest potential.
