I’m not usually one for waking up early, but this sunrise shoot was worth it!
After discussing ideas with Monique, we landed on three things: innocence, pensiveness, and vulnerability.
Specifically, we discussed representing these ideas symbolically through butterflies.
Monique revealed, “I love their airiness, ability to flutter on and about, yet soar if they need to. They are delicate. That’s what I admire about them.”
I spent the evening before the shoot covering a sheer mesh dress in paper butterflies. These butterflies had been carefully cut out for a previous shoot.
For the second look, we went with something simple and flowy to show off graceful movements.
