Thru the Clearing

SONNET 116
"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark, 
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending sickle's compass come; 
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved. "
Shakespeare 

Thru the Clearing: the Idea.

Styled Shoot: May 2015, Perth.

The wonderful reality of my day to day is working with other creatives to style and make photo shoots come to life. Thru the Clearing was originally a product shoot for my wedding bouquets so that I would have photographic examples of my wedding bouquets to show  brides that were my own.

The more I discussed the ideas I had the more friendly creatives wanted to be involved.

In the end we were so inspired we went back to the woods a day later and re shot in the gorgeous evening light we had found the day before.  As we thought that there was more beauty to be captured.

Most of my creative shoots are inspired by poetry or early fiction as I {geekishly} read a lot of these such novels in school{And still do}. The words of the greats have always inspired me. This photo shoot was already in the making when I came across an old copy of 'Sense and Sensibility' by Jane Austin whilst at a friends home {aka The Vintage Table~ always inspiring}.

There is a sense of waiting. Biding of time... In the woods.

Romance is not dead,

not with such beauty afoot!

And so the story begins...
