Rustic Autumn Picnic: Styled Shoot

I spent the last couple weeks on the east coast, first exploring and being inspired in New York City and then home to Ottawa for Thanksgiving with my family. I also had intentions of making some creative connections in my hometown of Ottawa, and with the help of an amazing community pulled together a last-minute styled shoot.

The vision was centred around an earthy, rustic fall picnic. I wanted to focus on rich, earthy textures, subtle desserts, and cool, autumn colours (no orange pumpkins allowed). The moody editing brings out the richness of the changing season.
