Floral Portraits + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

All week I’ve been watching the last leaves fall in our yard. We had our first 20 degree morning and frost has set in, so I’ve been desperately seeking alternate sources of bright color and happiness online. Thankfully I stumbled onto the feed of Jeannie Huang, who has been part of an amazing team of creatives making beautiful images combining portraiture and flowers. Along with photographers Kathy, Ingmar Chen, and Tracy, stylist Yui Yoshida, Kathy Kho and models Roché and Lucy, Jeannie has been sharing incredible images that celebrate rich, vivid colors and help instantly banish those early winter blues. To check out more from this amazing collaboration series, visit Jeannie’s Instagram feed right here. Until Monday, here’s wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.
