Oishi-m Hi Summer '18 - Behind The Scenes at Torquay Flower Farm

What a stunning place to shoot our latest range of Hi Summer beauties! 

With farms located in Torquay on Victoria’s Surf Coast, the Santospirito's are a 3rd generation family business with over 50 years experience in the flower industry. We were so lucky to have our request accepted to shoot our Hi Summer campaign in their fields of glorious blooms, on a sunny day with our munchkins dressed in colour to boot!

We believe in magic, and this place is quite possibly where secret potions are made from petals and blooms of a thousand shades. With a gentle breeze blowing across acres of farmland, every individual stem seemed to be dancing in the air, singing to each other in harmony and talking in whispered tones.

Wholesale flower growers and suppliers of fresh cut flowers and foliage to the flower industry, it's a little slice of heaven to be amongst such a vast array of flowers.

During still moments you could sometimes imagine the kids were planted amongst the rows of prolific blooms, as they were camouflaged in chaotic colour like little garden gnomes. Isosceles SS Splice T Shirt on his own program, tossing his collection of petals to the wind.

Even the tractor got a corsage on it's side, and scattered pot pourri on it's bonnet :) Tai Chi Pinafore Dress looks angelic in the driver's seat.

Acres and acres of rolling paddocks gave us a great sense of freedom, in a place that we've always driven past but never explored...

The calming effect on all of us was palpable as our usually marauding munchkins settled into a chilled out zone and picked their take-home posies. Portside SS T Shirt chose mummy's favourite colour and got some extra special cuddles as thanks.
