This was one of those shoots that passed in a complete daze, and if I didn't have photos as proof it happened, I would have thought I imagined it all. With most of my shoots, the timeline is pretty short from start to finish, but with this one I felt like we had been talking hush hush about it forever and the anticipation was strong – I thought the dates would never actually come. The idea was to shoot the new Cactus de Cartier collection against the backdrop of a desert – at Amangiri, a place I've only dreamed of visiting.
I have immense gratitude that I can't even put into words for the ladies at Cartier who made this shoot possible and who trusted me to take on such a project. I recognize what a special opportunity this was and hope you'll get a feel for the desert light and palette that inspired these photos.
