When Leith Clark proposed I shoot for the premiere issues of her new magazine, Lula, I couldn’t have been more delighted. Our visions were perfectly aligned and always produced fantastic images. This story focused on two of my most beloved subjects – gorgeous girls and flowers. And the iconic Darla Baker delivered exactly my favorite type of elfish beauty – and played footsie with me under my big 4×5 camera to boot. We shot this on film, 4×5 film, and only had the budget for about 30 sheets per look. With Darla before the lens we could have gotten by with even less… Pure magic.
