The past 3 months have been really difficult for me on a personal level, but one thing I’ve always known to be constant is my dear Mom. She has been my rock, my best friend, my everything, and I wanted to make something pretty just for her to show my love and gratitude.

When I saw my Mom on Sunday she gave me this tassie massie made up of lavender and oregano, tied with a lilac ribbon. The whole week this little gesture has welcomed me when I arrived home, and been a reminder that everything will be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay, its not the end.

I photographed this series with a Canon 5D mark iii, a 90mm macro lens and a reflector. The textures where added in post production, and you can read the tutorial here.

My Mom hasn’t seen these images yet, but I know she subscribes to my newsletter that goes out every Friday. So… surprise, Mom! I love you!Lavender-05a-Rikki-Hibbert-Photography
