Earth, Wind and Fire


A pretty shoot I did with my lovely friend Mckenzie a few weeks back. On Cinco De Mayo to be exact! Been wanting to do a shoot with this photogenic girl for ages and we finally got around to doing it! I love the way the shapes and movements really pop in the hazy black and white color scheme. This kimono by one of my favorite brands, Spell and the Gypsy Collective, is like pure magic. The way is falls, the way it flows when one dances, the spectacular tie dye print that looks like a cotton candy interpretation of the sky. I had the idea of earth, wind and fire for this shoot, and worked it so that the elements of her outfit mimicked elements of nature. The beautiful light we had during this midday shoot (earth), the seamless drift of tangled crochet and fringe (wind) and the striking and regal feathered headpiece that I made just that morning (fire). It's crazy what one can do when you get creative at the last second. Thank you Mckenzie for being my model this day. You are a doll. xo
