Tea party photo shoot

This post - and the whole blog - has been a long time coming. In fact it has been a bit over a year since this photo shoot took place!

The summer of 2013 was fast on its way out when we decided we wanted to get pictures taken outside while it was still somewhat warm, just in case we got things up and running during the winter.

Cinematographer Heini Mäntylä agreed to be our photographer. The idea was to have a tea party with a bit of a decay romance atmosphere. With a couple of props of our own and quite a few borrowed from friends, we had ourselves a little picnic in my garden.

As it turns out, it was not so warm after all! While one was having their individual pictures taken, the other was huddled inside a blanket. We persevered, were very glad we had decided to stay close to home, and had pizza and sauna afterwards. Simultaneously, actually. I cannot recommend eating spicy pizza in the sauna enough!

These are just some of the amazing shots we got, and there are, and will be, more on our Facebook page once we get around choosing them! Feel free to join if you haven't already!
