Recently I was feeling quite inspired by how green and lush our lovely valley looks having just had all of this rain, to throw together a little spring styled shoot. When I started to dream up the concept and look I was hoping to achieve Alana and her precious daughter Indigo immediately popped in mind. Alana (Alana Clumeck Art) is a local artist here in Santa Ynez and paints the dreamiest works of art! Her daughter Indigo is already following in momma's artistic footsteps and has started an art movement of her own called the "Indigo heaART project" Indigo spreads happiness with art by giving away her paintings and has inspired others to do so as well.
I decided I wanted a Bohemian spring inspired mother/daughter shoot and Plenty Boutique's clothing/jewelry selections were the perfect fit! I had so much fun browsing through all of their unique, whimsical pieces and was able to find the perfect items! If you have not yet checkout out Plenty Boutique RUN. Seriously run... I wan't everything they have.
Hair and makeup was done by the ever so talented ladies over at Spa elan in Los Olivos. I have had the pleasure of working with them several times over the past few years and I love referring my brides, expecting momma's or any woman looking for a little extra glam and pampering before their shoot. Sometimes having your hair and makeup professionally done makes all the difference in your images.. and who doesn't love a little relaxing special treatment. Their space is SO relaxing in fact that you probably won't want to leave! I loved what they did with Alana and Indigo's hair. The dainty little elements woven in their wild curls such as tiny braids and messy knots achieved the look I was going for perfectly. I LOVED Alana's bronzy natural glow in these images.
One of my favorite elements of this entire shoot was the dainty floral garland made by my dear friend and talented floral designer Rachelle Witt Designs. She truly amazes me with the beautiful things she is able to put together and always exceeds my expectations. She also provided flowers to place in the girls hair and it really pulled the whole look together. Thank you so much to all of the ladies who contributed to such a lovely shoot! I could not be happier with how everything came together. Now I'm definitely inspired for whats to come this spring!! Here are a few of my favorite images from the first look in our shoot. Enjoy <3
