feeling my way through the darkness
guided by a beating heart
i can’t tell where the journey will end
but i know where to start
I bought the blue gown in Bangkok over a year ago. I saw it hanging in the stall at the weekend market and it gave me this feeling; I knew I had to photograph it.
I had shoot after shoot throughout the months and it kept waiting in my closet and I started to worry that I would never find the right time, the right face.
When Rebecca joined Camille + I for a day we had set aside to take some images for ourselves, to push our artistic dreams, I knew that she would wear it the way I imagined it.
Rebecca – young face but with an old soul. Thank you for bringing your grace to my lens.
Camille – I’m proud of what we created together. Thanks for always pushing me forward.

Sometimes I just need to work on something with my hands. To create something real and beautiful that I can touch and feel.
That’s why I picked up this book and began a little project to make my own flower crown. I decided to document the process.
For the base I connected Olive branches and Rosemary together using 20 Gauge green wire.
Be sure to use wire clippers so you don’t ruin your regular scissors.
I also put a few strands of wild grass in there but it was kind of a mess so I don’t recommend it (they looked pretty though!)
I used a smaller gauge wire to wrap Delphinium, dried Lavender, Queen Anne’s Lace + Baby’s Breath into small bundles and then wired those to the outer crown base.
Finished off with a few larger white Daisies for dimension. And that’s pretty much it. I couldn’t have done it without using the help of Studio Choo’s Flower Recipe Book. I highly recommend it!

Recently Camille + I had a chance to get together and dream a little. Thanks so much to Sam for being such a great model.
