I would only recommend this book for someone that has a more off the beaten path taste as it is just too different from the images I associate with the photographer. It is one of those books I think a person should flip through in a store to be sure it is something they want. I wouldn't have bought it if I'd done that and won't be keeping it.
The cutest images are:
Kai dressed up as lotus bud
noah dressed up as eucalyptus bud
luce dressed up as qualup bell
Tyler dressed up as greater bird of paradise
kuhu corelia holly isla and jane dressed up as ornithogalum bulb
poppy dressed up as hercules moth pupa
anade dressed up as common crow butterfly exuvia
