I shot these photographs along with a few others with the intention of creating a set of individual photos. When I was going through the set, I was inspired to merge these two images together based on Uilani’s personality. She is demure, proud and confident. I happened to be editing these two images in Photoshop and had them side-by-side when the inspiration struck. I liked the lines of each image as they flow and almost subconsciously merge together. If it were not for the empty space between the two figures, the two dresses could be easily be interpreted as one. As for Uilani, her posture in each image clearly defines each emotion. The merging of these images is serendipitous based on the line alone.
