All Llama Everything

Am I the only one seeing llamas everywhere?

A few months ago I teamed up with my bestie Ashley of Midwestern Bride and photographed part a 6 page spread for Wisconsin Bride Magazine. The shoot was open-ended for design but had to include 5 different florists and 5 different inspirational floral pieces for weddings. We decided to do a modern theme, heavy on the whites and greens with accents of black.

For those who missed it, I shared the magazine release on this post HERE. And the biggest secret about this inspirational shoot was that it included not one, but two llamas! Can you imagine how fun that was for me to be photographing a bride & groom with a llama in downtown Madison!? Guys, it was so fun! We had so many gawkers and some one even almost caused a car accident because they were too busy snapping photos with their phone than driving! Thankfully, no llamas or humans were injured during the shoot. 

Ever since this shoot I have been seeing llama decor popping up EVERYWHERE. Last year it was pineapples, and now it is llamas.

I myself do not llama-anything in our home, but I still think some of these items are pretty neat.
