A floral print of the illustrious tulip in sunshine yellow, this fine art capture felt like a visual embodiment of the relationships in life that grow old with us. As I studied the adjoining petals I began to consider the connections in my own being — those of value and those less so. Like most flowers, the resplendent tulip blooms irregardless of what’s happening around her. With just the right amount of space, moisture, air, and light she becomes the very best version of herself. While capturing this stem in all her splendid glory, I thought of the people in my own life who have encouraged me to love and be loved in return. Such friendships are everything I need in this existence to help me bloom. Framed with the intention of enhancing the elegance of this special edition 16 x 20 inch print, this exclusive piece is encased in museum quality glass, on Canson® Infinity Arches® 88 Paper made in France, complete with a signed certificate of authenticity. The framing allows for a depth of perception that truly takes you to connect with your piece of floral art on a more intimate level. This is the wonder of combining the mastery of photography with the craftsmanship of framing. A friendship as old as time.

Illuminating light streamed through the cracks of the curtains. Flickers touching all that gathered in its wake gently, reciprocating an eternal love. Sunshine has a way of being seen without asking permission to shine. Rising with the dawn and falling into slumber when she desires to rest. The ocean never asks her to stay longer or ignores her presence—a relationship based on symbiosis and appreciation. Tulips muslin petals are reminiscent of the gentle threads that weave friendships together. The collapsing into one another, the fragility of their being. The way all flowers bloom, without worrying about the perception of those around them.
Through witnessing these blooms, I began to delve inside my inner being. What relationships in my own life were propelling me forward, and what ones were holding me back from my full potential? In what ways was I participating in pleasing more than loving myself. Letting go is not easy for my soul, but with time, I am learning that it is imperative for the growth I so crave. I love with my whole heart, and as I created this photograph, I wanted to capture the surrender into that love. Love that I know I no longer need to earn. Love that is intrinsic and true. Love that leans into us just as we lean into it. A love that allows all in its aura to bathe in its warmth. We don’t need an endless source of light, just a couple of beams that stay with us as we move through this little thing called life.
