The Love Language of Flowers

I have joined forces with my talented friend Lisa McGuinness to co-author and photograph our first book together, The Love Language of Flowers. To see this year-long project come to fruition in such a beautiful way has been an extremely rewarding experience. My hope is that the guidance, recipes, and photography filling its pages become a seasonal companion to you, inspiring you to create in a meaningful way with flowers.
