I am so excited to finally announce that I am now a published photographer & designer! Four of my images were chosen to be printed in the Bloom issue of Arrow Magazine. Even more exciting, one of my images even made the back cover! I am so happy, especially since this
was my first magazine submission.

I had originally intended for this shoot to feature a couple. I was inspired by a vintage style image I had seen a while back on Instagram showing a male & female with flower faces embracing one another. Sadly, I cannot seem to find this image, but I did however, find many others on Pinterest to help with the inspiration. The title of this shoot was, Let Love Bloom. My idea is that love comes from within, and we should love one another for who we are. Once you have found your match, your love will begin to bloom. Loving someone for who they are is such pure love, it can’t help but to grow and radiate. Here are some images from my mood board:



Unfortunately, my male model was a no show, so it was up to the ladies to kill this set, and we most definitely did. Here are the four images that were printed in the magazine, along with the others from the set!
