It is June, the most popular month for weddings. Every year, millions of couples walk down the aisle and begin their new lives together. It is a big event that is accompanied by a big need for unique wedding greeting card designs. So it only seemed fitting for Kelly Richardson Images to use June Weddings as the theme for this month with the LuvKelly Recycles 2015 with rescue kittens.
To create this image for this theme, we recycled a family heirloom for this image: Kelly’s Victorian style drawstring bridal wedding purse lined with tiny pearls. Kelly’s grandmother gave this to her for her wedding over 15 years ago. Next we added beautiful floral head bands and hair ties borrowed from Kelly’s daughter. We used Burlap material in a creme color over a creme fleece for the background. The cute little rescue kitten above is Tom. His brother Jerry is pictured below. They loved playing on top of the cool, soft silk!
Please DM Kelly Richardson if you would like more information on how you can license these images to help support the LuvKelly cause. A portion of the proceeds goes directly back to help save and foster kittens from death row.
“LuvKelly Kittens Recycles 2015 Photo Shoot Tutorial Series” To RECAP: For the entire year of 2015, Kelly Richardson Images has chosen to create a monthly rescue kitten photo shoot with all natural materials and recycled items that can be found around the house. We are going green in an effort to raise community awareness for the planet earth and for the innocent kittens and cats that are in need of rescue. We hope to encourage our communities to recycle to help save the environment, save energy, and help reduce air pollution and greenhouse gasses that depletes the ozone layer of the earth; We hope to raise community awareness for kittens on death row in county shelters, and get help and support for the private rescue organizations that save them, take them off death row, foster them with adequate supplies, attend to their medical needs and find them a furrr-ever home.
So far these are the featured monthly photo shoots we have done this year:
