I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up

I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go

I know

but I am here to learn.

Ballet inspired shoot with Amy Osaba Part 1


I loved the write up from Once Wed:

Sometimes we can gather inspiration more from moods, memories, feelings, and past experiences rather than from images of someone else’s wedding. Finding inspiration in all aspects of your life rather than trying to imitate what someone else did, is the best way…

These images are incredible.

Anonymous asked: hey! how do you protect your camera when shooting in the rain? It's been raining for a week and I'm stuck inside... I'd love to go out and shoot something, but I'm afraid because of my camera. But I don't want to spend the winter stuck inside! ughhhh heeeeelp!

Haha plastic baggies and little umbrellas are the best thing for rainy days ;)

Also any of these: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Rain-Capes-Covers-Slickers/ci/3313/N/4075788778
