Put together on a bit of a whim, this shoot was inspired by the great romantic poem, Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18.  Working with this team was completely magical.  We all came together on a cold January morning with this concept in mind: ‘Eternal Love’.  And, even though we were all exhausted by the passing of the holiday humdrum, we shared a passion for this idea and the results speak for themselves.  I hope you’ll enjoy all of the beauty.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
