Generations by Juniper Designs and Amanda Watson Photography - The Portraits

Cottage Hill Generations

Welcome to the first week of the new year, friends. Here at Cottage Hill, our mission is to celebrate lives worthy of an elegant and meaningful legacy, so we are over the moon to be featuring this beautiful shoot from Alison, Silver Cup Artist of Juniper Designs. Alison's own mission for her work is very parallel to our heartbeat and is so evident in this stunning shoot, capturing and celebrating the women in our lives. Here is what she shared with us:

In my wedding and my sister's wedding, we each had items or heirlooms from generations past to represent loved ones on our wedding day. Looking back, I was so focused on finding these items for my own wedding that I didn't think to make, purchase, or use items that I would want to pass down to my own children and grandchildren one day. I've noticed that in our generation long lasting pieces are far and few between and that we have an affinity for "vintage" or older items. So many people choose the cheap and quick option over something that will stand the test of time and be a potential heirloom for future generations. I've collaborated on a design for a custom bolero accessory for the bride and sister to become an heirloom in their family. We have incorporated the Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Niece into the shoot to represent the generations in her family. This is a bridal session with the women of the brides family invited for photos that may be missed on her wedding day.

Here are the lovely portraits, and tomorrow, be sure to return for the details and full gallery!
