I'm a sucker for Fairytales. Especially the Grimm's fairytales. About two years ago I purchased a copy of the complete collection to read during road trips. Since we sleep in a tent or our car for the most part, we don't use electronics at night (especially without service or wifi). Instead, we huddle by the fire until either I get too cold or the fire dies. After that, S and I will tuck away into our sanctuary and write in our travel journals, draw, or read stories to each other.
I had played with the idea of a fairytale like shoot for Big Sur and planned my outfits accordingly, but I never could have imagined it to come together so perfectly. This was my first time working with photographer Rachel Zee and we were lucky enough to shoot in what felt like an enchanted forest in Big Sur. Thanks to the recent rains the meadows were lush with thick grass and clover patches. The wind was absolutely howling at times but it made for some pretty awesome hair movement. Top it all off with that California sunlight shinning in-between the trees and you get the images you see here.
