We're Alex + Cassie Torres and we're a couple of homebodies in love.
We proudly call our fixer upper in Bridgeport, CT home. It's where our cats are, afterall.
We believe that:
We want to take pictures of you in moments like these. When you're at your best selves. When you're most comfortable. When you've got your feet up on the coffee table, having a tickle fight, and falling more in love.
In short, we named our business after our tattoos: a colorful beet and black and gray blossoms. Our photography style mixes the essence of these tattoos. Our images are vibrant and soft, delicate and earthy, masculine and feminine. Here are the stories behind them.
From Alex: The Beet
The beet tattoo came from an experience I had back in Burlington, VT when a friend and I went to a farmers market to pick up dinner ingredients. I was more a "steak and potatoes" kind of eater back then, but I was pushed beyond my comfort zone when we ended up with beets on the menu that night. They. Were. Incredible. It completely changed my perspective on food and on life. I nearly instantly became more creative, more willing to try new things. Incredible to think eating something could have such a profound effect, yet beets remain as a constant reminder that going beyond your comfort zone is a good idea.
From Cassie: The Blossom
My magnolia blossom tattoo was inspired by a spiritual experience while I attended college at James Madison University. During a time of uncertainty and questioning, I walked under a flowering tree on campus and right on cue, the petals rained down all over me. They covered my hair and got lost in my backpack. I was filled with an overall peace that felt like a personal love letter from God. Ever since, flowering trees in spring remind me of Jesus' affectionate love for me.
