During our trip to Charleston, we visited the Magnolia Gardens and Plantation in North Charleston. We took the opportunity to take photos of Jessie's handmade dress. This shoot focuses on the details of the dress as well as its surrounding environment.
Working on the Anadem Project is always a breath of fresh air. Starting last August, Jeannie and I have collaborated on a series of floral portraits. Jeannie, as the floral aficionado, draws inspiration from the personalities and unique spirit of individuals to choose floral arrangements that become a crown (anadem) that can be worn by our models. I then work with each individual to draw out moody and dreamy expressions to create these portraits. These shoots are a great reminder of the power of collaboration where the synergies of creative thought bring about an even greater piece of art than if one were to work alone. In this series, I've included some behind the scenes and candids to reveal what our working session looks like.
