It's a Vibe

I got to spend six beautiful days back home in Seattle this Thanksgiving and I'm so excited to finally share some of my adventures!

I wanted to take advantage of the warmer weather and beautiful backdrops so I set out to set up some photo shoots. Originally I reached out to Alisha hoping she could do my hair for a project- this photographer turned hairstylist is someone I've worked with in the past. Alisha started out taking photos four years ago and then found herself doing hair (she's really good at it). Sadly she wasn't available with all these salon bookings, but she mentioned setting up a photo adventure of our own.

A date with Alisha was set and I took to Pinterest to get some inspiration and get a mood board together.

I don't believe in changing who  you are in a sense, but I do think that trying to fit in is something we as humans naturally try to do. What am I talking about?...my style. Living in Alaska, being a hipster: ripped jeans, beanies, felt hats, Docs; these are not what you'd see a lot of around town. I decided it was only right to go all out for this street style shoot in a place that is accepting of my fashion sense.

As I looked through the many images on Pinterest, I came to the conclusion that a male model could add something- but who? I don't work with other people often unless it's in a styled bridal shoot setting; it was so much fun working with Hunter. It was his first time behind a camera, but I sure hope not his last!

Scroll down to check out all of the looks from that day! Fingers crossed and keep an eye out, you may just see Alisha and I working together again this fall during NYFW.

Till next time lovely people.

I think I aim for a sort of androgyny. It sort of tones down some of my more masculine features...But overall I have never felt very masculine or feminine which allows me to feel free to play around with the clothes that I wear.
