Black Photography Backdrop

Happy Saturday my Lovelies!
There is something intense, dramatic and deep about taking photos on a black backdrop...I found a vintage black velvet gown and and while doing some research and experiments with my camera... I learned it's much easier to photograph  against a solid background and then add/subtract filler items for context.  In gardening photography, this is called a specimen shot where the only thing of interest is an individual plant, flower, or leaf, and this kind of photography can be its own separate category in a gardening photography competition. Although in my photos I often have more than one specimen...I like to think my product fit the category perfectly!


 I LOVE the freshness a white background creates!  However, something white against something black can really highlight the details that might have otherwise been missed!

Atmosphere Designs - Large Paper Flower Walls

Good day my Lovelies! A couple of years ago I had the pleasure to work with a fabulous lady,   Gue from ATMOSPHER DESIGNS. Gue wanted to design large paper flower walls for a special event and I helped by making the paper flowers...This project was one of my very first BIG Paper Flower Backdrop project to work on: making flowers to cover 3 large walls...It sure was a workout...truly a labor of love...But now seeing the photos...I have a huge feeling of pride...to see my paper blooms so beautifully displayed...It warms my heart! Gue was a total delight to work with...I'm definitely looking forward to future collaboration! Paper Flowers designed by Paper & Peony Wall Designs and Photos by ATMOSPHERE DESIGNS

Launching Paper & Peony!

Ever since I made all the final decisions for the new brand name, logo and colour palette, I’ve been thinking on how I should launch the new brand.
As you can see, Dragonfly Expression’s logo and brand has undergone a significant transformation. The new identity had to satisfy all of the existing expectations of what my original artistic design stands for...while simultaneously moving the brand forward. Striving to maintain the quality and creativity as an artist was my primary goal. 
Thanks to the professionalism and the eternal patience toward my indecisiveness,  Caroline Langevin, branding designer at Caro Design, made the brand enhancement   more than just a logo makeover—it is a reflection of my company’s renewed commitment to making my client’s vision for their project a reality.
I am excited to continue to provide you with the quality and uniqueness of my custom floral artistry you are accustom with. In the coming months I will launch even more new products  and a fresh new look on …
