Celestial Bloom

With sunflowers in full bloom and a story of love that inspired me I set out to capture a special moment in time. A local man had recently lost his wife to a fight in cancer. Planting nearly 4 miles of sunflowers I set out to capture our galaxy emerging from one of these flowers. Babbette Seeds of Hope is a cause founded on the very fabric of love. I set out to capture a billion stars burning brightly in a field of hundreds of sunflowers. A moment that will live with me forever.
