Shipwrecked || A Styled Photo Shoot

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a certain little seashell headpiece I have been working on for a styled photo shoot. That shoot has finally happened and it was AMAZING! Kayla of Kayla V Photography, contacted me a while back with a bit of inspiration. When I heard that the idea behind this next shoot will be Shipwrecked, I was totally on board (no pun intended)!
After a few postponed dates and a couple changes/cancellations, we did what we could to make this happen! Courtney Barnum was the perfect model, Melanie HoneyBlossom worked her magic with her makeup brushes and thanks to Samantha, we found the perfect locations. Not only did everything come together beautifully but it was such a great day to have a little mountain adventure with 5 creative girls.
See more of this shoot here.

Here are some behind the scene photos I captured on the iPhone. Follow me on Instagram to get more BTS shots of future shoots.

Lighting these candles scared me. Like really scared me. I kept thinking we were going to catch the woods on fire and counting on 5 girls to put a fire out? Ummm...not the best situation.
Luckily, we were stealthy and my paranoia disappeared after we blew all 7 of these candles out safely. 

It was a beautiful ending as the sun started  to set beneath the trees.

Thank you again to everyone who helped make this shoot a success!

  3. The photos are wonderful. I'm such a shy photographer. I don't really know what I'm doing so setting up a photo shoot would be so overwhelming for me. And I love the headpiece it's gorgeous.
