years ago while photographing in an abandoned temple in india….
i found myself the subject of a curious group of young men….they had gathered
behind me & watched as i photographed….i was a bit nervous….alone in a foreign
country….although there was a language barrier, i gestured to them to get into my
shot (which the happily obliged)….the beauty of that moment for me was profound…
i had turned an uncomfortable moment into photograph that i have cherished ever
since…there was no staging at all, other than my suggesting they get in the shot…
they spread out & stood like this on their own, i could not have planned it better…
the beauty of perspective lies in how you look at a situation….xoxo

“Took this love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
And can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Oh oh I don’t know, oh I don’t know

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older I’m getting older too
Yes I’m getting older too, so

I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I, I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older too oh yes
I’m getting older too

So, take this love, take it down
Oh if you climb a mountain and you turn around
If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring you down, down
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well maybe the landslide will bring you down
Well well, the landslide will bring you down”

 i adore TWIGS & HONEY & her amazingly unique
& inspired designs…MYRA CALLAN the brains & the beauty
behind TWIGS & HONEY is a one of  kind talented woman….
i was recently lucky enough to photograph some her new head

the lovely magazine MUNALUCHI BRIDAL MAGAZINE

….MYRA ON STYLE & INSPIRATION….

“I’m currently obsessed with decadent laces, beading and soft silk fabrics. My mind is constantly abuzz with new design concepts and projects I’d like to pursue. I have several large projects and collaborations in the works and cannot wait to reveal them over the next year. In addition, the 2012 Twigs & Honey Collection has been brewing for half a year already and I am so excited to share it – I promise there will be lots of surprises.

When I’m not busy with Twigs & Honey, I enjoy leisurely walks, running, gardening, and spending time with my husband. My current obsession is cooking all natural vegan dishes.

Twigs & Honey pieces are a mix of romance, whimsy and femininity. The collections include headpieces, fascinators, veils and more. The pieces are handmade in Salem, OR with attention to detail, design and quality.”

_________________________

one of the things i love most about MYRA is that she is completely self-taught….
her creative spirit is a combination of innate talent & lots of hard work… MYRA’s
designs are a constant marriage of often times, dichotomous styles….she continually
strives to create innovative and exciting new pieces that cater to all personalities…..
MYRA has designed exclusive pieces for BHLDN and was commissioned by Ann Taylor
to design and create handmade paper flowers for their window displays and accessory
moments nationwide….additionally, she has been a Featured Seller on Etsy…..

GREEN WEDDING SHOES

each blog has completely different
images….so have fun browsing….

amanda the founder of RUFFLED blog shares some of her vision…

“We’re partnering with designers who share a vintage-inspired aesthetic to
create exclusive collections for Ruffled. Brides will not only be able to find all
things vintage-inspired fashion, but they will also be able to customize their
wedding dress to make it into something completely unique. Most gowns are
well under $800, so they are super affordable too!”

the dresses are adorable…it was so fun to shoot them….

 we spent the whole day at the beautiful
SANTA BARBARA HISTORIC MUSEUM…it
was the perfect backdrop for the RUFFLED shoot…

these vintage inspired gowns were a lovely match with this vintage blue car….

the coolest thing about the dresses is that there are lots of options…

amanda shares….
“Each dress comes in a variety of fabric, color and length options
for you to choose from. You will also have the ability to mix and match
bodices and skirts. My favorite option is that you can also add pockets to
your dress! We will also accommodate custom orders. “

 in addition to sweet dresses, there are a variety of accessories too….

there is literally something for everyone….

 so much pretty, i can hardly stand it…..

“I have been wanting you for so long
I have been wanting you for so long

Girl, when you touch me back

Yeah

So now I’m feeling alright
Cause nothin’ feels like

Cause nothing feels like
When you’re holdin’
When you’re holdin’
I’m feelin’ alright
Cuz nothing feels like
When you’re holdin’ on
When you’re holdin’ on

I wanna treat you like you wanna be treated
I wanna see you as you wanna be seen

I been down

Cause nothing feels right
When you’re holdin’
When you’re holdin’ on

Cause nothin’ feels right
When you’re holdin’ on
