Becky Filip the stunning lead singer of The Honey Trees was so kind to oblige, picking her favorite pieces from the Summer collection and answering a few questions too. With her talented brother Simon Filip once again behind the lens they worked their magic and put together this breath taking shoot for us.
Where did you shoot these beautiful Summer photographs?
These photos were shot in both the Central Coast of California, and Northern California. The Lula's untie me dress was shot in front of a place called Windmill Farms, where the flowers surrounding the outside were beautifully blooming! We shot the Fleur's untie me tee and Summer breeze skirt near some farms and orchards in Nipomo, CA. (wish the horses around the area would have cooperated with us that day!) And Lula's Darling dress was shot at a ranch in Sacramento, CA.
You seem to have such a harmonized taste with you brother Simon, do you enjoy working together?
Simon and I have a very similar aesthetic when it comes to photography, so it's very easy working with him and knowing that whatever the outcome is we'll both like it! We definitely enjoy working together because it's easy, and obviously we're comfortable with each other. Plus neither of us are afraid to tell the other one off if we need to. ;)
Each location looks perfect for the outfit, did you plan the day to suit?
We actually didn't plan too much when it came to the photos, as far as which outfit would be shot where. It just seemed to work out! We knew that we wanted to take photos on a dock somewhere, and it just so happened that Lula's Darling dress was the last to shoot, and the dock was the last place we found. So, it all just seemed to work out nicely.

What has inspired you this Summer, either work or play?
I'm constantly inspired by a beautiful sunny day, which here in California, you get a lot of in the Summer! It gets me in a great mood to work on new creations every day.
Do you have any new fun projects on the go that you would like to share?
I'm currently working on some new prints and other items for my etsy shop The Meadow Lark which I'm excited about sharing soon! :) I've recently taken up painting with acrylics and I've been really happy with the outcome of my experimenting with it!
What has been the highlight of your Summer or the perfect Summer's day so far?
The Summer so far has been sort of a blur, with just working on paintings and music lately. I'm currently in Northern California spending time with family, so that has been nice. But I look forward to getting back down south soon and spending some days at the beach!

Can we expect any new projects from the Honey Trees? Do you have any tour dates planned?
No tour dates as of right now, but we are currently just focusing on getting songs done for a full length album. We hope to get into the studio soon! Also looking into booking some shows in the LA area soon. :)
