Taking a break from any photo shoots or fashion shows or even weddings (!) – we went down to the Sandy Springs Festival. We stopped by the Indigo Bath and Body booth and hung out for a bit with Jenn, one of the owners – and she is also the soap maker (do they have technical titles?) – So while Leah was distracting her with witty conversation, I hung around and started practicing some shots. Jenn makes all of the soaps and they’re… well, really awesome (see, Leah should’ve been the one to write the soap descriptions – otherwise you end up with ‘the soaps are awesome.’)
Jenn does spend a lot of time on her booth setup – all the little signs and the wooden boxes and… there are lot of other soap makers that sell at these festivals and lots of them kind of just make ‘interesting’ piles of soap blocks. Um. I like the textures in these soaps? No really, ha, without sounding too flowery – look at them, they’re… nice.
On our way out we stopped by the Kenari booth – where three kids coaxed Leah into trying a sample of their herb juice (herbs!) We were talking with the owner, Jonathan, and he mentioned that they have a farm not too far away in Roswell. It’s actually an 11 acre track of land that was set to be another subdivision until they saved it! Check out their blog and website – photos of their farm and such, plus Jonathan is a really nice guy. Oh – and among other things, the blog chronicles the life of the farm – each field being made and crops grown.
Fortunately for us we had already left the festival when it started raining really hard. Unfortunately for the vendors at the festival – it started raining really hard.
We bought a half gallon of the Kenari herb juice.
The rest of the day? I’m making more DIY photo gear. I’m shooting a wedding tomorrow.
