After our first collaboration with Bloemenbureau Holland in 2016 we were more than honored to be asked to be their ‘flowergirl’ which means styling and shooting images during a year for a special advertising campaign which focusses on the different seasons Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, all with their own special flowers.

So this January it started with the tulip. This always cheerful beauty is available in any color, from white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, green or multi-colored petals. Also, the shapes of the tulip be a joy to the eye. You can find them with a single or double row of petals, and there are also striking franje- and parrot tulips with jagged petals.

The beauties we used in our shoot had the most lovely pink blushy tone, and ruffled edges at the end of the petals.

When you gave tulips as a present in the sixteenth century, you gave wealth. At that time the flower was in fact immensely popular and there was a speculative trade in tulip bulbs. For the price of a single tulip bulb you could buy an entire canal house in Amsterdam. This bunch of beauties would have meant an entire street;-)!
