It's not always wise to go into a photo shoot, especially a portrait session, with no idea what you are going to do but it's more often than not my normal modus operandi. I enjoy discovering people on the spot, allowing the unexpected. Occasionally I may have the vaguest idea of a starting place but where we end up will almost always be anyone's guess... and so it was on this shoot. We started with sweetness and sparkling white daisies. Somehow we traveled far from a simple pretty to more of a goth-like image, using the sample section of a wrought iron fence that a friend gave me as the main prop. Add some beautiful light and a fading rose and a really interesting photo began to take shape.
