Evil Queen vibes.
I'm wearing the Queen's Coat in Night.
We bought the bike just for the shoot. I thought the color was going to be more butter but it came out banana. I freaked out a little bit, but then, turns out it looks great on camera!
Hand stands. Practiced for MONTHS. I am not great at them. And when the day came and I had to do it onto a tree overlooking a cliff, my nerves crept in. I fell multiple times, my muscles gave out, and I almost started crying. But I picked myself back up, tightened my core, and BELIEVED. That's when we got the shot.
I'm wearing the Wishing Star Capri in Dark Bloom.
This tree pose was surprisingly soooooo hard to do with my eyes closed! Open, no prob. Closed, another story!!! I nearly tipped over several times! We thought getting me in tree pose in front of a tree would be a nice thing to try. I love how powerful the photo is. It looks calm and still. But really, I was wavering!
My friend Laura who is firstly an awesome person and secondly a super talented professional ballerina, helped me prepare for this shoot. Working with her helped increase my flexibility while bringing out the dancer inside.
BTS shot. Then you can appreciate...
...the final result.
The colors of the wind were vibrant that Winter day!
I love this shot.
A blend of now and what's to come.
I'm wearing the Wishing Star Capri in Plum and...you will see next time ;)
Big thank you to the incredible people in this photo. Lexi, Laura, Sam, Daniel, Tiffany, and Leslie! I am SOOOOOO GRATEFUL to have you guys in my life.
