As an artist, I'm always striving to push the limits of creativity.  I find beauty and inspiration in bright vivid colors and soft light.  Last year, I decided to step out of the box of and style a shoot for no other reason then to inspire, play with colors, light, and other elements.  I'm a wedding and newborn photographer, but every once in a while I like to try new things.  Create something beautiful. Explore new places.  EXPLORE TO CREATE.   A very special thank you to Emily of Wood Violet who provided the most amazing delicate florals for this, Dana Dufek who collaborated with me on some of the wardrobe and artistry inspiration (as well as her own creative photos- check out her blog for her vision from the day, awesome but totally different!) and especially to our STUNNING model Laura, who braved the cold with a smile on her face, and  made us all laugh every chance she got.
