My webshop Dear Suzy Studio is finally up - yaaaay! To start with, there are a few posters available, and I also added links to a few of the products I sell through Society 6.
The Palm Shadow poster is probably my favourite. I adore shadow play and I love palms, so this is something that I've been thinking about creating for years. I finally got around to it this summer, and I have a few other shots in this series that I will add to the shop as well. They are really created with blood, sweat and tears – I had dragged out my huge palm plant to photograph it against a nice white stone wall, it was sunny and hot and I felt really dizzy and weirdly nauseous. I even almost fainted a couple of times, and had to sit down in the shade, to catch my breath. It took several hours to shoot and to get exactly what I wanted. Little did I know that I would be diagnosed with anaemia (due to iron deficiency) just a few days later, and had to spend the next few weeks commuting to the hospital to get IV iron injections. It now hangs in my hallway, reminding me of summer, but also of how nice it is to be able to walk up the stairs without fainting ;)
The poster Hälsingeskogar is photographed during an early fall trip to my dad in Hälsingland, northern Sweden. We went out to the forest early in the morning to pick blueberries, and there was this thick, fairytale like fog that you could almost touch. I just had to leave the berry picking to my family and concentrate on the photography.
I also added links to my favourite Society6 products. I'm seriously in love with their backpacks, and how CUTE my botanical patterns look on them. I think it's a perfect match (if I may say so myself). I just ordered the Ranuculus & Eucalyptus backpack for my daughter, but had a hard time choosing between that and the Sweetpea one. We could all use some vintage botanical cuteness to brighten up the November greyness!
Both the Ranuculus pattern and the Sweetpea pattern are also available as iPhone covers. What I really like about Society 6 is that they offer both traditional iPhone covers, iPhone skins and Clear iPhone cases (pictured above). Something for everyone.
