Ariane looked so lovely in her pretty blue petal dress it seemed a shame to be stuck indoors, especially on such a lovely sunny June afternoon with the lilacs filling the air with their delicate scent and the clematis in full flower – an ideal backdrop for a photoshoot!
“Does this look okay? I’m a bit nervous…” says Ariane, trying to relax in front of the camera but getting distracted by a blackbird singing in the tree nearby.
“How’s this? Be sure and show my pretty sparkly blue shoes, can you see them under the petals of this dress? Here, I’ll make sure they can be seen.. that’s better.”
“Oh, these flowers are so pretty, I love this shade of pink, look how many blossoms there are. And this is next door’s clematis that prefers our side of the fence because there’s more sun, teehee. We’re flower stealers!”
“Quick, quick, take a snap of just the flowers so everyone can see how lovely they are, with the little yellow stamens and the way the petals get so thin at the edges… the green leaves are just the right shade, don’t you think?”
“Shall I pick you a flower? No? Yes, they are a bit tiny and fragile I suppose, and a whole stem would spoil what’s out here.. look closer though, I think they have a scent, do they?”
“Oh, maybe not, its the lilac I can smell. I think these flowers look the best though. Hee, and I forgot to be nervous about the photos, thankyou flowers, very helpful!”
