Blizzard 2016 Winter Whimsical Styled Shoot at Burke Lake Park

Living in Northern Virginia you have to be used to snow. Some people hate and some love it. I LOVE IT!!! It’s an income for us since my husband has his own landscaping and snow removal business called Northern Virginia Grounds. I also just love it because its beautiful and fun to play in as well as have the chance to do a snowy winter styled shoot!

This was my first styled shoot and I had been wanting to do one for so long so I finally dove in. I got some help from others in the Rising Tide Society group (listed below) and everyone was awesome! I decided last minute to meet at Burke Lake Park because the other location I wanted was still closed from the snow. The weather was warm (60 degrees!) and perfect!! Kati was stunning in the beautiful Lyonella gown designed by ZAKAA which is available at Ebrada Atelier in Leesburg. It was a little stressful scrambling everything together last minute which is why I had my first one be small but it turned out better then I expected! I’ve already put together a board for my next styled shoot and can’t wait to start planning it! Make sure you like my Facebook pg to know what it ends up being! I’ll give you a hint…it will be golden!

Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
