Today is a great day, my friends. Allllll the chaos of trying to style a shoot the week before I moved across the country has paid off. We’re featured on The Lovely Find today!
This shoot was born out of the transition I’ve been feeling in my own life between leaving behind my life in Texas to embark on this adventure in Oregon. I heard THIS SONG by Noah and the Whale and instantly knew that’s what I wanted to create a shoot around. The lyrics that struck me the most say the following:
it’s the first day of spring
and my life is starting over again
well the trees grow, the river flows
and its water will wash away my sin
like a cut down tree, i will rise again
i will be bigger and stronger than ever before
I wanted to show the tension between the new and the old – the winter and the spring. The moments before and after two people’s lives are changing for better or for worse.
the first days of spring.
