"Document Journal's creative director Nick Vogelson simply asked that I make beautiful plant photography—absolutely one of the better prompts I've received! I visited floral designer Lewis Miller's studio about a week before the shoot. I showed him my sketches and we talked color, texture, genus and species. Also, I found some inspiration for the shoot just observing the goings-on in his studio. On set, I tweaked the arrangements, adding a leaf here, moving a leaf there, perfecting the composition. Being surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers at work is fantastic."
