Every time I work with Nick, I'm reminded of just how strong my passion is for this art. He has such a beautiful, original mind that radiates through his work.  On this particular occasion, we had prepared a list of various concepts we wanted to bring to life - all of which were impossible to do on the day of the shoot due to cold weather.  We met up on this November morning with not one specific idea to go off of, all we knew is that it had to be indoors.  
Nick turned my closet into the smallest studio any of us has ever worked in, 
but we managed to create something bigger than we could have expected.

4 hours later, we were all very excited with what we came up with.  
Simple, seductive, synergy.

Thank you both for your hard work.
