I had a lot of flowers hanging around... and had been meaning to do a collaboration with Katherine for her blog for awhile. She is the perfect boho gal for some hand made, custom, real floral crowns and headdresses. I normally wouldn't condone placing a headdress or other ethnic, traditional clothing or accessory item on someone NOT of that culture, and to clarify I did not do that here. Katherine has native roots and it is part of her heritage. I wanted to honor both of her ethnicities and cultures by creating for her a headdress that gives more of an Art Nouveau feel and look to it to ensure that the final composition is timeless and not a parody of her Native American heritage.
All clothing items I used for this shoot I paid less than $10 for.... and were acquired via ebay. That includes the Pharaoh swim suit, the tie dye dress, and the star harness. The makeup was a collaboration between Katherine and myself and I created the floral crowns and headdress from "left over" wedding floral that was given to me after a wedding I had worked. The floral was going to be tossed and I asked if I could reuse it. It's important to remember that there are lots of things that will allow for creative and beautiful photographs at your disposal! You have to be open to reusing items!
This headdress to honor Katherine's heritage was created out of one 6' long feather "chain" from Amazon ($11) that I've used several times in photoshoots before. Mostly I've used it for a neck piece, as I've said before I cannot ethically create a headdress unless it's ethnically applicable out of respect and consideration for the Native American culture. The beaded piece of this headdress is an 80's belt that I had thrifted about a year ago for $4. The side floral I'm sorry, but I don't know what kind of plant this is but was part of the arrangements I reused from a previous wedding. I hope you enjoy these images and they inspire you to create some beautiful outdoor boho looks for your own photoshoot!
