Growing up, I was always surrounded by beautiful poetry…my parents would read me their beautiful words every night and I wouldnt have had it any other way. My inspiration behind this shoot was based on Oscar Wilde and his vibrant poetry…the very colorful palette of muted pinks, greenery and bold jewel tones were inspired by a love and admiration for Oscar Wilde. His effortless take on real romance was the basis for building this beautiful story. One of Oscar Wilde’s poems in particular, “Her Voice” set the tone for my vision of what I wanted to portray.
“And there is nothing left to do
But to kiss once again, and part,
Nay, there is nothing we should rue
I have my beauty, you your Art,
Nay, do not start,
One world was not enough for two
Like me and you”
