The Romans marked the occasion over two millennia ago with the Floralia, or Festival of Flora, a five-day ceremony to honour the Roman goddess of flowers. Flora was regarded as one of the most ancient goddesses of Roman religion.  So as we beg for spring to come we made our spring this week at our Festival of Floral themed model shoot at M&D Farm located in Westerlo.  Our studios contract regular girls to produce amazing images and an experience unlike any other.

Spring, on a private farm in upstate New York finally came thanks to our amazing models and vendors!

Thank you to Mario and Daniel for their venue.

Always a huge thank you to my photographer Shelly (@ajpteensbyshelly) for helping pull this off with her wonderful creativity.

 

For now, please enjoy our visual story telling masterpiece.

Spring on the farm is just awakening.  The buds are just starting to appear and the hopes that winter will finally release it’s grip.  In Roman culture the floral goddesses were called up on to bring in May and enchant the flowers to bloom.

As the floral goddesses emerge, they bring about power and beauty to wish winter a solid farewell.

Our floral goddesses Soleil, Makayla, Emma and Lily appear with all the beauty life has to offer.

Amelia, Ashley, Lillian and Adrionna find hopes of spring throughout the farm.

In the end, the floral goddesses’ enchantment won and spring was granted access and winter met it’s demise.
