“I love you, I’ve loved you for years and I’ll love you for years more. It’s not something I can fight, it’s not something I want to fight.” ― Somi Ekhasomhi, Always Yours
The red tulip means “Believe Me” and “Love Declared” in the Victorian Language of Flowers, thus the title of this image and the reason I selected it for Valentine’s Day. I wish you all a day filled with love and joy.
I loved working with this family a couple of weeks ago… A mom and her three girls! Is there anything more beautiful than a woman with the loves of her life in their natural state? I’m thinking Dad/Husband will be thrilled with his surprise gift! What do you think?
“The reason why love is eternal is that it does not exist for itself, but gives life to those it transforms.” – Jeffrey Fry
My Heart Aches for You
Sweet and Lovely
The titles of the photographs of red and white carnations are based on the meaning of red, white, and striped carnations in the Victorian Language of Flowers. I took the liberty to combine meanings and alter them a bit to ensure that the titles conveyed my vision and intention of each image.
“Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalm 85:10
The image of the scroll was taken during a recent shoot for a Bat Mitzvah. I paired a verse that I love from the Old Testament book of Psalms with the image of the scroll. As the words photographed are in Hebrew I have no idea what they actually say, but felt an Old Testament verse would be appropriate to accompany the image. I love the verse because it is beautiful and contains four words critical to overall happiness; words that I truly wish the world could live by.
The image posted above is titled heavenly because it appears that the flower petals float off into infinity, or heaven. It is dreamy, like pink clouds. The quote links the meaning of the peony, happy marriage, with the title of the image. Love and heaven united.
“May the love hidden deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams. May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.” – Unknown
The above four words are associated with the Star of Bethlehem flower in the Victorian Language of Flowers. When I saw the quote above I felt that it somehow linked the four words; atonement and reconciliation of yesterdays and hope for pure love in the days to come.
