Monica Hart Behind the Scenes of 425 Magazine #Fall Photo Shoot at Woodinville Lavender


How fun & fabulously FALLish  is this quick behind the scenes  I-phone snapshot of our

425 Magazine fall picnic photo shoot in the peaceful & beautiful fields at 

Woodinville Lavender


I can’t wait to see  the talented Brooke Clark,  of Studio B Portraits

amazing images from our magically misty  morning at this gorgeous lavender farm,

tucked away in Woodinville, Washington wine country! A huge THANK you to Tom Frei

  and company for opening those gorgeous gates for our FALL shoot! This lavender farm 

truly is a year-round must see!

My rock-star helpers and I created several fun fall picnic stations  right  in the fields,  

FILLED with fanciful DIY autumn inspiration!  I really hope you are going to like it :)

I am so excited & grateful to be a 425 Magazine Lifestyle specialist for all of 2015!

It’s going to be a smidge  challenging to wait and see this  piece go to print…but here’s the thing ~

If you know me, you know I LOVE fall! No, I really, really  love it! There’s nothing like it.

We decided to capture fall in REAL time with all of the fabulous fall colors, misty fall

mornings, Cinderella pumpkins, the freshness of just picked and pressed apple cider,

just plucked fall figs and roasted squash soup – in season!

It’s the real  deal.

Right now, the lovely lavender in the fields at Woodinville Lavender are

clipped into tight little mounds and the morning mist has fallen like a light veil on

the Woodinville Valley….

Someone wake me up from my fall fantasy haze! I’ve got

work to do on the next  425 Magazine issue!
