The Flower Book | Part One | Dana Cole | Oslo

This is the beginning to a year long project and I am very excited for it.
I have wanted to do my own ‘coffee table’ book for a few years now. So I decided to make it finally happen late last year. My book would be about my current love for flowers. Everything about them make me happy and smile. So I wanted to dedicate an entire book to them. This book will be 160 pages of Models with flowers, and beautifully done floral arrangements by themselves.

I had my first shoot for the book 3 weeks ago.
For this shoot I wanted a headpiece surrounded in flowers around the models face, and a dress encased in flowers at the top of it! I got busy making what I wanted to achieve and I was very happy with the results.
Since I plan to reuse many of the flowers I bought, and I bought TONSSSSS lol, I used a double sides tape to make the flower top. So that I could easily remove them the next day.
Here is a little timelapse:

Some of you may have watched a bit of me live shooting this on Instagram and Facebook :)
but… for some of you, this is the first time you are seeing this shoot.
I had a fabulous videographer by the name of Behzad Ranjbar of Unikfoto, shooting some BTS footage for me that day..
Here is his fabulous video !

Sooooo, without any further delays.. and weeks of deciding which images I wanted to go into the book. I have chosen them andddddddddddddddddddddddddd, here they are.
