Alexandre Souêtre

Though I take most of my own photos for my instagram, the model side of me still really enjoys collaborating with photographers. A few weeks back I had the pleasure of collaborating with Alexandre Souêtre; his simplicity & minimalism is insanely beautiful in his photos. I want to share some of my favorites from our shoot with you, along with some relevant quotes I have found recently. I keep a journal to write down quotes I come across that speak to me & inspire me. Words are so powerful & I enjoy keeping a physical book I can just read whenever I feel lost. Anyways…

“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile & personality. What you believe in & all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.”

-Helena Bonham Carter

“My goal in life is to be one of those people who are just light. You see them & you suddenly feel so warm inside & all you want to do is hug them. And they look at you & smile with the warmest light in their eyes…and you love them. Maybe not in a romantic way but you just want to be close to them & you hope some of their light transfers onto you.”

“I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower. Strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon, tough enough to weather the worst of summer storms & able to grow & flourish even in the most broken places.”

“Flowers are reincarnation. They come out of earth, of our ashes. Nothing else looks so soul-like.”

“I look to her in the simplest, smallest moments, when she reads or drinks coffee, or brushes her teeth & I am breathless, knowing it doesn’t take a million dollar telescope to witness the crushing beauty of the universe.”

-Beau Taplin

“I think we like to complicate things when it’s really quite simple: find what it is that makes you happy & who it is that makes you happy & you’re set. Promise.”
