Solstice

Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river
How do you fall in love?
Harder than a bullet could hit you
How do we fall apart?
Faster than a hair pin trigger
Don’t you say, don’t you say it, don’t say
Don’t you say it, one breath and it’ll just break it
So shut your mouth and run me like a river
— Bishop Briggs

There is power in creation
There is strength in women finding beauty together
There is love in a story

I loved creating this Utah editorial shoot with Amber Reverie and Sophie Kynaston at the Great Salt Lake. I'm in awe of their beauty and strength. The sun set early behind a cloud, robbing us of the late golden light that we were chasing. But how can I regret that, when I found inspiration in the darkness instead.

Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
— Martha Graham

It's is always a gift to collaborate with talented artists, and capturing the elemental beauty of florals and dance, motion and organic beauty was a dream long in the making. 

A forever thank your ballet dancer, Sophie Baddley. For her grace, hard work and strength. It is a joy to document what someone loves and has worked their whole life at. 

Another forever thank you to Allison Baddley, La Fête Floral, for being the best creative partner, mother to Sophie, and visionary floral artist. It was a dream working with you to create these dreamy editorial photos.
