I had the unique opportunity recently to shoot my first commercial photography assignment. My friend Lisa Schwier, owner and floral designer at Post Road English Garden in Indianapolis recently became the exclusive floral designer for a funeral home chain. The funeral home directors wanted new photo albums of Lisa's designs to show their clients. So Lisa asked me if I'd be interested in shooting her floral designs in one of the funeral homes and help design the book, and of course I jumped at the opportunity! I met Lisa through my daughter-in-law Abby who worked for Lisa full time before she and my son Pete and granddaughter Izzy moved to Logansport recently. Abby still works for Lisa occasionally when Lisa has large events or weddings and they both do beautiful work. Abby came down to Indy for two days this week to help Lisa assemble these and many other beautiful casket sprays and arrangements.
Thank you Lisa for inviting me to work with you today. It was interesting and exhilarating to do something a little outside-the-box....no pun intended :o)
