I try to maintain a healthy dose of daydreaming, to remain sane. Florence Welch
Although the sun is starting to set, she doesn’t feel the cold creeping into her bones yet. There is enough going on inside her head to keep her warm for a bit longer, daydreaming as she is prone to do. Slipping out of reality and into her own mind is her way of keeping herself balanced, allowing her to explore thoughts and realities she never thinks are possible when she’s dealing with the real world.
Today’s gorgeous boudoir is a styled session from Lauren of Lauren Driscoll Photography. Inspired by Florence Welch of Florence and The Machine, she put together a session to capture the magic of a carefree spirit being caught up in a daydream. She explains:
I've been non stop listening to Florence and The Machine's new album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. Florence is so elegant and always wears extravagant flowing dresses on stage but is so comfortable in her own skin. I wanted to incorporate the flowing lace and magical light while bringing out the confidence in the model because Emily has such a down to earth, carefree spirit. She came with a beautiful burnt orange bodysuit that complimented her sun kissed skin perfectly.
Whenever I photograph boudoir I like to keep the model as true to themselves as possible. That's where their inherent beauty comes out. Emily's beachy waves and freckles made this lacy session perfect. We were dying to do a more styled shoot together so incorporating the lace all around her made for a dreamy bohemian vibe. We managed to capture the sun peeking through the bushes for a few shots that ended up becoming some of my favorites!
Thank you to Lauren for this call to allow ourselves to be caught up by daydreams. When we give ourselves time to escape from our real world and spend time thinking about the endless possibilities out there, we find so much more creativity and beauty than we even thought possible! We hope you’ll make room for daydreams in your life this week, letting your mind wander to new places of possibility.
