Man and woman are like the earth, that brings forth flowers
in summer, and love, but underneath is rock.
Older than flowers, older than ferns, older than foraminiferae,
older than plasm altogether is the soul underneath.
And when, throughout all the wild chaos of love
slowly a gem forms, in the ancient, once-more-molten rocks
of two human hearts, two ancient rocks,
a man’s heart and a woman’s,
that is the crystal of peace, the slow hard jewel of trust,
the sapphire of fidelity.
The gem of mutual peace emerging from the wild chaos of love.
Fidelity- D.H. Lawrence
Working with Melissa Jill was such a joy and honor. When she proposed that we trek to Northern AZ and play in a field of wildflowers, I was all in! The way she captured the love of our real couple, Arielle & Matt, was truly breathtaking.
The styling inspiration came from the beautiful location in scenic Flagstaff, AZ. In an open field of wildflowers, the soul feels free, yet connected with the Earth and nature. One can breathe and clear the clutter from their head. Promising everlasting love with a clear mind and heart connected with nature is an ideal scenario.
Jenny Sanders hand wrote the D.H. Lawrence poem,“ Fidelity ” meaning to me, that when there is a true bond, it is solid, even though they go through many seasons and changes. True love is as strong and natural as an open field of wild flowers.
