    It was in the Victorian era that flower design became an art. Known as an incredibly restrictive period in women’s history, it is no surprise to me that the bouquets of the time were extravagantly lush, brimming with fruits and symbolism. Flowers were able to say what the women arranging them never could. If the Ranunculus blossom in this image could whisper secrets, it would be “I have a crush on you”. With timeless class, these fairytale blooms held hopeful excitement for potential lovers. 

    In shooting this photo, I wanted to explore the world of a Victorian woman. When I was unable to leave the house during the quarantine chapter, I turned to art to bring the world inside. I would daydream of ways I could pick different blooms. I would arrange them to reflect the landscapes in my mind. I would notice details in the fragrant petals that I never had before.

    This unique photo is a journey through flirtation, a comparison of worlds centuries apart. The classic vintage feel is offset by the winking bouquet - showing us the timelessness of a blushing romance.
