Whenever a submission from Sabrina Hounshell of Seriously Sabrina Photography comes in, I just know it’s going to be good! There’s simply something so unique about her styling and the enormous amount of thought she puts into each shoot. Two of my favorite past features from her are A Lovely & Magical Inspiration Shoot and The Seamstress and the Watchmaker. And today’s is just as wonderful!
The inspiration for this shoot came from the band the Civil Wars and their album Barton Hollow. With their poetic, romantic and almost fragile style, Sabrina always imagined them playing on the porch of an abandoned cabin. Then one day it just hit her to do a rustic photoshoot to capture that romance, beauty and fragility that they so beautifully convey.
The cabin was built in the 1800’s by Daniel Boone’s family who lived in the region of Kentucky. As for styling, everything was completely DIY. The girls dresses are vintage night gowns with slips that were found at a vintage store. The fresh flowers were purchased from Kroger, a local grocery store. The cake is SIY with strawberry icing and adorned with dried flowers from Micheal’s craft store. The dreamcatchers are DIY made from embroidery hoops with lace doilles stretched on them and mismatched lace and ribbon tied to their bottoms. The table scape features wooden bowls, an old cast iron skillet, and large vintage silverware on top of a vintage trunk to pull rustic elements into an elegant, but simple and neutral color pallet.
Thanks for stopping by!
