From the planners, Lauren, Callie & Leah of The Wild Mother: “As we began conceptualizing our vision for this shoot we affectionately call Folkways, we looked no further than the heirloom pieces that have been passed down to us and our brothers for safe keeping – an old handwritten love note; a delicate jeweled ring worn for decades by our great-grandmother; the sprawling land that has yielded the richest fruits and vegetables; and tried-and-true bundt pans which have come from the oven, piping hot with 7up cake. It was in the worn colors and feminine textures where we put most of our efforts, providing something soft against the modern and handsome backdrop of our Holloway House.”
