I’m not even sure what to say about this shoot. It started as just a small labor of love, wanting to do an inspirational shoot in my hometown last summer. I found this gorgeous model, Maria, who has now become a good friend, and teamed up with a few other local artists to pull this together. I am so obsessed with how all the images turned out, it was hard to narrow down which ones to share!
Not only did the full editorial appear on The White Wren back in May, but one of the images (the last one in this post) was a finalist for the Belle Lumiere Image of the Year awards AND Maria’s twisted up hair style was featured on Cosmo one day. Say whaaat?!
