The Four Seasons, Tribute to Alphonse Mucha: Summer
Welcome to the second installment of our Four Seasons series. To catch you up to speed if you happened to miss our previous post - Alphonse Mucha, is a highly recognized "art - Nouveau" artist known for incorporating nature into his ethereal posters and paintings. As an eco-conscious cosmetic company we love the whimsical and surreal feeling his images invoke and we look to emulate this feeling in our photographic series "The Four Seasons".
Summer inspires thoughts of bright, warm colours contrasting with cool hues. Envision the balmy sun shining down on the surface of a sparkling, fresh water lake; it's these elements that motivate our look.
The incorporation of water into this shoot was an obvious choice (what better way to cool down on a hot summer day) so we decided on Big Hill Springs, Alberta. It's beautiful ponds, cascading waterfalls and proximity to our beloved Calgary made for the ideal location.
For this shoot we welcomed aboard our newest team member, Kitty. Her talent for wardrobe and styling took this project to the next level and we couldn't be more thrilled to have her as part of the team!
Next in the series will be our Fall season (a personal favourite). Subscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram so we can continue to share with you and keep you up to date on all our products, events and projects!
