I was super stoked to get the call from Cecilia of Indigo Sky Creative. She told me she and Elena Kulikova the Photographer had an idea they wanted to work with me on. I called Alex the Great (Healey) and she happened to be open that day, so the collaboration was on. Cecilia brought Maribella Lanne for Make up and Hair. We hadn't worked together yet & I love what she does. Magic. We booked Emmaline Zien, model/actress with the most amazing lines, and we were off! Bright and early to Temescal Park in Oakland. Did a half hour scout about. Cecilia has a super keen eye and knew just what she wanted. Elena, Alex, and I dropped gear and started working. First the mandala by the waterfall, then the yarn in the small trees, then the succulents and yarn combined by the second waterfall. The large rock wall, I had brought garments and have this amazing vintage butterfly dress. I don't think I ever looked half as good as Emmaline looked in it. Alex and I danced around a tree and created a second mandala. After that Maribella and I made a flower crown and we wrapped the day on the big big tree. The expanse of the branches, Emmalines lines, and Elenas eye made for the prettiest angles and photographs. Indigo Sky catered the sweetest spread, and we all ate together like we were the oldest of friends. Everyone told stories and laughed long into the afternoon.
Thank you everyone for the collaboration!
