In the Mail: Photography from Life Love Paper

Don’t you love to get mail? I often shop online not only because it’s convenient, but because it’s like sending yourself presents. Yesterday I received the gorgeous photos that I ordered from Tina at Life Love Paper. She’s such a phenomenal talent that I have to share them with you!

I purchased several mushroom prints for a client who has requested “cool art for the walls”. Really, it doesn’t get much cooler than this. Each photo is 5″ x 5″ and they’re going to look stunning framed and grouped together gallery style. Tina so beautifully captures the magical details of each little ‘shroom; the sculptural appeal of the gills is simply breathtaking.

When I ordered these lovelies, I knew they were going to be hard to hang in someone else’s house—I really want to keep them for myself. But Tina kindly sent along some extras, including a charming holiday print similar to the one above. No way am I giving that up!

I’m already scheming about which photos I want for my own collection. The textural details of these figs—the pulpy flesh contrasted with the smooth, dusty skin—are captured so perfectly in this haunting still life. And this rose seems to have been plucked out of a vivid dream.

I’m simply in awe of Tina’s photography. See more in her Etsy shop! As well, be sure to check out her awesome blog, in which she is equal parts brilliant artist and eagle-eyed curator. And thanks to Tina for her incredible work!

Bonus Question: Is it just me, or do you ever shop online for the pleasure of receiving mail?

    I shop online using Nick’s credit card. I get presents in the mail, and he gets the satisfaction of knowing he got me something. It’s like killing two birds with one stone. This is our idea of romance. 😉

    Ah, I love getting mail, sadly it rarely happens! My fiance’s mom always sends him stuff but for some reason my name is always on the box. I get really excited, then I realize–Not for me. Sad. Those mushroom pics are amazing. Good find!

    I TOTALLY adore getting things in the mail. Living in a small town, it’s hard to get a lot of the things I order locally, so online it is. And these TTV pictures are amazing! My husband uses the same technique. Stunning.
