A WALK IN THE WOODS | THE ORIGINAL JESSIE| AUGUST 2017
Wear a flower crown? Yeah, I thought hesitantly, that’ll work. This is a great idea. I’m sure my two year old will keep a flower crown on her head and not pull it off and smash it to smithereens in less than a minute and a half, two minutes tops. In all my non-existent wisdom, I went ahead and broke the totally spoken rule about working with children. However, my fears were, on this occasion, unfounded. Well maybe there was some short lived resistance… but we shan’t dwell on that.
After lovingly creating not one, but two flower crowns, for my littlest love, the totally amazing Sophie from Little Dots Photography in Bristol captured these wonderfully whimsical shots of Jessie, the inspiration behind Jessie & the Bloom. I’m sure one day she’ll have had enough of the flowers, but at the moment, passing by the hedgerows with a wee one exclaiming as loudly as possible, ‘LOOK. Mummy’s flowers’! is a pretty special feeling and one that I’m holding on to closely.
