I photograph people…

When I was working on photo shoot yesterday, for an exciting new book with Lila B, I met another photographer who asked me what I photograph.

My quick reply, as I was standing behind my tripod with my camera pointing at an arrangement of flowers,”I photograph people.”

Photographer man: look of awkward confusion.

My addendum, “And lately, flowers.”

While I do love, and probably prefer photographing people, I am willing to photograph almost anything if the people I get to work with are amazing.

And as I start work on my second flower/plant arranging book, I can confidently say I have nothing but love for flower people and I will happily work with them any time.

Here are behind the scenes look from my first flower book, with the incredible Studio Choo, that will be on the bookshelves, in a book store near you, this spring.
