It is so beautiful to be surrounded by people who bring to light the best part of us, support and nourish us with good vibes, feelings and excitement!
The collaboration with Mary Taylor from Retro-Art Studio started a few months ago, when she commissioned a flower arrangement (bouquet) for a photo shoot. The very moment I saw her photos, I fell in love instantly. Our collaboration is very beautiful and is based on respect and communication.
