I am pleased to announce Snow in July Designs is featured in the latest issue of WNC Magazine! (I was even a model in a photo or two!)
A quick overview:
Concept by the phenomenal Elizabeth Hempfling, all photography by the awe-inspiring Revival Photography.
Earlier this year, I was approached to work on a very special project that would showcase not only a town, but an entire community and culture. I was beyond honored to be included, and although my part was a small one, the impact of the project was immense on my heart and soul. A dear friend and colleague Elizabeth Hempfling set-out to put the beautiful town of Spruce Pine back on the map. Over the years, she has fallen in love with the town and wanted to share her love story. I was asked to recreate paper props to accent the photoshoots, highlighting the areas rich and exciting past, present and future.
Below you can see the ideas and paper props that unfolded with each time period and location:
1900’s – The railroad system begins to grow the town of Spruce Pine.
1920’s – The mining industry begins to boom with the discovery of abundant amounts of feldspar, mica and quartz.
1940’s – The Carolina Theater downtown Spruce Pine brings huge talent to town including Patsy Cline.
1950’s – Local businesses are thriving like the popular City Drive-In.
