Chevron & Shimmer: A Vibrantly Chic Spring Shoot
Photos By Happy Confetti Photography

Photographer Melissa O’Connell of Happy Confetti Photography based this staggeringly beautiful styled shoot around her love of gold chevron and all things sparkly. “I really wanted to combine these two elements with vibrant flowers and some sunshiney goodness to celebrate the beginning of spring,” she said.
Over the winter, she started seeking out and collecting items for use in the shoot, which she envisioned as a harmoniously eclectic blend of vintage and modern elements. Gold chevron wallpaper, a sequined gown, gilded antlers, and a weathered antique step ladder were all added to her treasure trove of props. When she brought the old ladder into Amy Fraterelli’s floral studio, Va Va Bloom, she had a vague but marvelous notion of bedecking it with eucalyptus leaves and hot-hued blooms. Amy ran with the idea brilliantly.
“She created the most gorgeous florals!” Melissa gushed. “The flower crown was divine, and the colors perfectly complemented the model’s striking red hair and fair skin.”
