Too Many Flowers?

I was going through a file this week and came across these beautiful pictures. A couple of years ago I was the photo stylist on a shoot for a national print ad. The photo was to show someone tending to their flowers. It was early Spring in Colorado so an outside shoot would not have worked. I knew someone who had a beautiful garden room and that's where the photo took place. She had many plants already, so I added some fresh flowering plants. I also added garden props to enhance the shot. A few of the props were pieces I had created. I cannot find my copy of the final ad, but here are some of the photos taken that day.

Beautiful Pink Roses

Black Decoupage Flower Tin

The ad was beautiful and it ran in a number of national publications. After the creative director saw the ad in print, he thought I may have overdone the setting a little bit. I replied that you can never have too many flowers or too many decoupage pieces. I do not think he agreed, but he smiled and then started discussing the next photo shoot.
