From Emily the Stylist:
The concept derived from our yearning to create subtle beauty by way of a nuanced color story. We decided to shoot in a location that spoke to our subtle and modern concept, the De Young Museum in San Francisco. With its many textured walls and muted tones, the museum served as a perfect backdrop for our minimally dressed model who donned a linen frock, mod sandals, and understated jewelry.

The table was styled with washed linen, ceramics, and stone. Simple water glasses gave reflection and transparency to the delicately placed ikebana floral. We kept design clean and minimal on the table surface in order to give attention to the overhead spirea installation which pulled in texture and a feeling of movement over the still table below. A floral based table was then styled to explore variety within the nuanced concept.

From Minano (the mom-to-be): 
In a constant rush of everyday life, people sometimes forget to stop and enjoy each other. The tender kisses and warm embraces in bed, barely illuminated by the first rays of the sun, become only memories. They are replaced by a distance and weariness created by the rush. But the real feelings are still there, and most times only need a small nudge for us to be reminded of them. For Vadim and I, this nudge was the upcoming birth of our daughter.

We wanted to do this shoot to capture our genuine feelings for each other. We wanted our daughter to be able to see how enamored her parents were with each other, and how very happy they were to be expecting her. In the process, we were reminded of our deep love for each other – enjoying the touches while gazing into each others eyes. Not pretending, but being the real us.
