Ladybirds // Styled Shoot


I’m not sure that I’ve ever been more excited to publish a shoot in my life. This one really made my dreams come true.

Earlier this year, my sweet friend Kellie from Spark Haus Vintage asked me if I’d like to collaborate on another styled shoot (we put together this incredible styled elopement last year) and my answer was obvious. When we were brainstorming, I knew I wanted to include lots of cool vintage clothing with warm tones + layered textures, and maybe some funky science-themed pieces. What we were able to put together became SO MUCH MORE.

I’ve got a whole bunch of amazing vendors to thank for contributing to this shoot, but these models need to be at the top of the list. Claudia, Jonique, Kitty, and Chloe were all absolute stars. In spite of being complete strangers to eachother, they had the loveliest chemistry. So dynamic, so gorgeous, so much fun. I cannot thank them enough for hanging out with me for the day.

Forty Three Skulls: taxidermy, including a freaking PENGUIN SKELETON, lots of mounted bugs, skulls, etc.
Canis Calva: gorgeous embellished skulls, bone earrings modeled by Claudia
Jenae Van Boxel: to-die-for hair styling + makeup artistry
Spark Haus Vintage: set design + styling, all of the funky + fun vintage goods
