Title: Inner Royalty-Self Crowned
Model: Briana Vasquez
Wearing: Hannah Melde’s beautiful handmade crowns- http://hannahmelde.com/
Hannah and I probably met a few times prior to talking about setting this up, but basically a few weeks ago while eating at Two Boots Pizza with Billy, he says “You should shoot some naked girls wearing Hannah’s crowns!” and we got to talking. I was looking for someone and had an idea in mind but then I got a better idea and asked Briana. This was my first time actually meeting her and it was super cool. She’s so easy to get along with her and she was very lovely to work with. The three of us were pretty hungover but I LOVED that they were still so open to do this so early in the morning on a weekend.
I definitely wanted this set to be filled with body positivity, as much of my work is. I want to show the beauty of this beautiful handmade piece of art work worn by a beautiful natural woman.
