oof. this shoot. it was such a dream to finally get to do. i've had the general idea in my head for a couple years, probably since i started doing weddings/design.
the little prince is my most favorite book. ever. it's meant to be for children but the metaphors, the beauty and the deep lessons taken from it are very much meant for adults.
meant to remind us to love, be adventurous, give of our hearts and to hope.
this quote set the tone for me:
“You're beautiful, but you're empty...One couldn't die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass, since she's the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she's the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she is my rose.” -antoine de saint exupery
the love story here is between "the little prince" and his rose. i wanted to switch the roles around and have my friend katy, be this stunning, tomboy-ish lady prince. and i'm so so thrilled with how everything turned out !!!
