peonies & light

We've had these incredible peonies blooming in our backyard the past few weeks and all I could think about was how they kept taking me back to the Victorian Era. Farah is one of my best friends and has such a classic look, so I couldn't let the opportunity pass. We've shot together before and thru all of the gabbing and catching up, it seems like we're always rushed for time.

Staged shoots bring on such a battery of emotions for me, I feel like a mad scientist, mixing elements of light, theory, and feeling. With it, always comes a dash of self doubt. ''This is crazy, I'm not gonna get it right, total flop''. I feel so lucky to be able to work with souls like Farah, who through all of the hair spraying insanity, still have faith in the end result.
