My beautiful friend, Carolyn, is pregnant with her first child. I wanted to do something special, so I thought the best place to capture this time in their lives would be where she and her husband have built a life together, and with flowers. I'm always drawn to people's homes because you can learn so much about them just by looking at the way they decorate, what photographs they hang, or what colors they choose. It's also where people feel the most comfortable, and are the most themselves.
There were two giant buckets full of flowers on the floor when I arrived, and I asked her to choose the flowers she felt the most connection with. She pointed out the anemones and ranunculus. We had about an hour before sunset, so we moved throughout the house finding little pockets of light to use, and went outside to their gorgeous garden.
It was a lovely way to celebrate new life, adventures and beginnings, and I can't wait to see the magic of our children playing together.
