"I shot these pieces at Eloise Butler Wildflower garden, which is one of my favorite places in the world. It is a very large gated wildflower garden with changing blooms each season amongst gnarly trees and rolling hills. It is so magical. I had a memory with two dear friends that I wanted to re-create. It was maybe 10 years ago, we hiked a bluff in Red Wing that was covered in tall grasses and wildflowers. We picked berries and blooms and picnicked all afternoon long. It was a very sweet and serene memory. Rachael Harrah’s pieces are so light and versatile, made of linen and breathable, I felt they needed to be shot outdoors in nature. This memory came to mind when I saw the pieces and thought they would fit perfectly at this garden."

"I have always loved photography and have shot for a very long time. In the last 4 years I’ve primarily worked with clients styling and photographing product for look books, social media or branding/re-branding shoots. Many of my clients are small businesses or makers, which I love. It is such a powerful thing to understand a brand, and then create images to convey meaning, emotion, purpose and beauty. Although I love to work with each brand to understand their aesthetic and style, I definitely have my own aesthetic that comes through, I would describe it as romantic, ethereal, and sometimes moody. I am really inspired by olden times, all things handmade, the outdoors, interior design, and the English countryside, well actually all of Europe. :)"
