I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by friends and creatives that will jump into silly projects with me. A quick text with a rough sketch to Sarah Winward and we had this fun concept in the books. These image were made by hanging flowers by nylon string in the foreground of the frame and pushing our lovely model far into the background in slightly different light. These are not composite images. Finding this difference in focus and subtlety in light helped us to create a feeling of a flat paper doll with a three dimensional flower as a dress.
So, so fun. Just the perfect project to match the spring lightness I’m feeling in the air! Thanks to the inspirational, real and amazing Sarah and also to the talented and adorable Gabby Gabbitas for making our model, Taylor Harmon, look the part so beautifully. Since these photos didn’t highlight her amazing styling we took some portraits of her wrapped in organic beauty, actually in focus, which I’ll be sharing later.

It’s always so lovely to work with the talented editors and art directors at SLPCBG on an editorial and I’m giddy every time they ask me to be part of a shoot. I can always count on Tessa & Samantha to round up the best of the best when we work together. As expected, so many wonderful people were involved in making this story beautiful and I feel honored to have been part of the equation. For a full list of all that went into this gorgeousness pick up your copy of the latest SLPCBG on newsstands now.
Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot. xxo
Sarah, beautiful and talented florist and owner of Honey of a Thousand Flowers, asked me to take some photos of an arrangement and little bouquet she just whipped up. This girl’s got chops and I loved getting the chance to photograph a couple of her creations.
