DA: Tell us a little bit about yourself!

JL: I am in love with savoring this life's most beautiful blessing: relationships. To me the most precious moments are the ones that happen naturally, organically. When you reflect back on your favorite memories, they are about emotions experienced with loved ones. Those are the moments that captivate me.

DA: What has been your most memorable image and why?

JL: That is an impossible question for me to answer. There are so many memories attached to my images that I could never choose just one.

DA: If you could tell photographers that are just starting out one thing you wish you had known before starting a business, what would it be and why?

JL: Avoid going with the flow. Don't make decisions based on what others around you are doing. That means in how you price yourself, how you spend your money, the types of things you shoot, even how you shoot them. Figure out who you are as a photographer and business person and then weigh all of your decisions against that. It will save you countless hours, dollars and mistakes!

DA: Where do you find inspiration?

JL: Mostly nature. Light, Water, Wind, Motion. Combine those with genuine organic emotion and I could get lost forever.

DA: If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

JL: Italy, the coast. The food, the sea, the culture. It's truly magical and I have never experienced anything like it.

DA: What are you most grateful for? JL: Grace

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
