Flower petals fluttering down from trees in springtime have always captured my attention; that snow-like quality of delicate, unique little things journeying from above is so beautiful. This past spring I was able to collaborate with Rachel May Photography, drawing inspiration from early spring's fluttering petals and dogwood trees, and it yielded one of my favorite editorials to date...
