Behind a florist – Haru Haru Florist

We have a lovely afternoon chatting with Carrie from Haru Haru Floret at the floral studio with sunshine-filled in the outdoor terrace, to understand the reasons behind making heartfelt floral works.

A – Amy from Little Stories
C – Carrie from Haru Haru Floret

A: Why do you do floral works? Why are they special/ meaningful to you?

C: I hope to bring joyfulness to people from flowers. I believe each flower is unique with words that speak for itself. My role is a messager to deliver the words through the floral works to my clients, such as sending some love for baby shower, friend’s graduation, engagement, or wedding.

Carrie is preparing for bouquets for clients and we had an idea to show the lovely kid Valerie a surprise for her upcoming family photoshoot with Little Stories!

Look at how Valerie reacted upon receiving the floral works!

“I love seeing reactions from clients and that makes me feel I’ve done my part sending some happiness to people around.” Carrie recalled.

We thought of an idea to bring spring home through floral branding project with Haru Haru Floret, the name carries the meaning in Korean, to bring floral works into every day lives in Korean language.

We did the shoot welcoming spring in Hong Kong, on the pastel colour tones in pink, peach, yellow and white.

For a branding shoot of behind-the-artist series, we would love to bring the inspirations of Haru Haru Floret’s love towards florals from flower books, souvenirs sending from her friends around the world to the surroundings of inspirations she is drawn into. We look for capturing photos that speak about her brand, her identity, and her love towards flowers.

Scandinavian Christmas Winter Wonderland with Skye & Scott in Amsterdam

Scandinavian Christmas Home Lifestyle Photoshoot with Skye & Scott -3

This Christmas, we enjoy our time to celebrate Skye’s birthday (Skye is two now!) and Christmas in this houseboat in the west of Amsterdam.

Scandinavian Christmas Home Lifestyle Photoshoot with Skye & Scott -1

This house is filled with a modern and warm Scandinavian theme with festive spirit, with a Morocco carpet just in and sofa in Safari colour, Christmas tree from local store Karwei. Designed by mum Annelies Dorsman, she does not have a design background but an immerse interest in interior and styling. How amazing it is! She is super sweet and personable, and happy to share her styling and time with her kids Skye and Scott at her blog.

We have so much fun as we echo with the idea to let the kids play and be themselves, explore around the universe!

We had an interview with Annelies to share some design inspirations with us!

Design Inspirations

Q: What are the ideas when you work on the design of house? What inspirations do you draw from to make a collection?

A: Most of the inspiration I get from Instagram and Pinterest. But also I follow my own insights. When I have an idea, I know exactly what I want and go on a search the find the perfect colours and items with it. I don’t necessarily follow the trends.

Q: How often do you change the set up at home?

A: I think it’s never the same a whole year around. The last room I’ve changed is Scott’s Bedroom. And a half year before that Skye’s room. Also a few months ago we got a new couch and a few weeks ago a big, Moroccan carpet. Since these latest additions, it finally feels complete.

Tips in home styling…

Q: Do you have some tips for mums to decorate their house?

Scandinavian Christmas Home Lifestyle Photoshoot with Skye & Scott -5

A: Sure! Don’t let kids take over your house. Make a corner of a playground for them in such a way you can enjoy your home without all the toys. You’re not only a mom. You’re still you. You’re still a wife, a friend, a partner. You name it. Don’t forget that when decorating your living room.

And very important for me: make sure all the spaces in your house have the same vibes. Use the same colours /tints and materials in the rooms.

Celebrating Skye’s birthday!

For this winter wonderland photoshoot with everything in our dreamy pastel colour tones, baby Skye and Scott are blowing out candles together for Skye’s birthday! We have the dreamy set up and props from local design stores HEMA and card design from local studio Studio Maria-Loïs in front of the well-lit moon as the backdrop.

I love the idea that Annelies would change around the design organically from time to time.

Merry & Bright Christmas

It’s Christmas time! We are welcoming the festive spirit with a lovely Christmas tree, merry and bright lights, together with the pastel snowy look of Violet.

It’s the second time for our photoshoot. We are so delighted to prepare for the shoot each time with Violet’s mum, LamLam together. It’s amazing to co-create our photoshoot as we share our vision and aesthetics in minimalism, celebrating on the idea, “Less is more”.

Childhood is all about dreams and aspirations that we would like to achieve. We enjoy our time catching the star with Violet, honouring the beauty of love while enjoying the time for support and unity together.

“I try my best to give a secure and supportive environment for Violet, so that she feels loved and is willing to explore around and take on the adventure in life.” shared by Violet’s mum, LamLam. I feel very touched by listening to her. We are connected and committed to support kids for a better future.

Love from Australia | HK Maternity Photo with ChingChing

a city with two tales

Ching Ching is a flight attendant from Hong Kong while her husband is an engineer from Australia. Ever since they fell in love with each other, they have been working hard to make communication across different time zones between Hong Kong and Australia. It’s interesting to notice two clocks at their house.

Although they are now both in Hong Kong, they keep the two clocks as memories that they’ve worked it through the geographical difference. Phew! You two made it!

Preparation

Ching Ching and husband have been working hard to read through the books from taking care of the diets to educating child, going to the prenatal classes, saving up the newborn clothes and preparing for the baby room… I can imagine how much effort my parents have put in us throughout our growing journey! And that’s why we are capturing the photos so that Mirabel can look back how much her parents love her!
