I know, I know, we're heading into a crispy fall in a couple weeks and Spring's about as far off as Pluto right now. But, the moment I laid eyes on these 'first day of Spring' photos from a styled shoot by Dawn Joseph Photography I just had to post them. This editorial was shot in Branch Brook Park, New Jersey last April one week prior to the peak blooms. Branch Brook is known for Newark's major cherry blossom festival and brings tourists from all over the world in April. This lovely vintage 80s beaded dress was the inspiration behind this shoot. Draped with white beads it sports padded shoulders and dripping white beads down the front. The models hair was delicately enhanced with white beaded flowers in a classic up do.
