Southern California Dreamy Editorial for Beaute Nouveau 2017 Lookbook - Fine Art Film Photographer

Lately, we've been craving those slow, lazy days. Those moments in between when all is still and quiet. When we lay next to our cats in bed and stare out the window and forget all about the endless tasks, notifications, and chores to be dealt with. This shoot embodied that feeling. That kick off your shoes and soak in a tub kind of feeling. We wanted to capture timeless beauty in moments of self care.

As Khalil Gibran put it, "knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms."

In case you needed it, here's a little PSA to take a moment for yourself today.
