“You really turned out to be very pretty…. We were worried there for a little while.”
My uncle told this to me when I was fifteen and it still cracks my stuff up. Especially since I have a glimmer of this sentiment when I’m done with a big, complicated flower project. At some point, it takes on a life of its own and the twinkling image of the end product gets a little hazy. Of course it always ends up to be fantabulous.
I always photograph my floral fantabulosity. I like to think that in my red box of mad skillz, photography lies gleaming among other shiny talents. Hire a photographer? Nay. Haven’t the time or desire. I can do it ALLLLLL. Muah-ha-ha.
That is until I got the opportunity to work with Mike Kippen the mighty M of M. Kippen Photography and his lovely fiancée and co-photographer, Sarah. Their photography skillz make mine gleam about as much as a turd on a boot.
Oh, what they do for my flowers! They are so pretty.
So thanks. Thanks for making my stuff prettier.
