The Dark Forest

A Collaborative Styled Shoot

with House of Cabelo.

 A few months back, I was approached by my amazing stylist Malyssa @mal_joy to collaborate with House of Cabelo to shoot their Dark Forest Styled Collab, I was all about it. Dark Forest shoot? Moody vibes with models showcasing rad hair ? YES! I loved her inspiration and all the talent that went into this styled shoot.

I absolutely love what she said on the House of Cabelo Beauty Blog 

“The day came and we were all filled with excitement, after months of collaborating with some old and new friends I could see the artistic storm brewing! Photographer Brittany asked what we wanted the main focus to be, Malyssa, Tara, Adriana and myself agreed we did not want this to only be about the hair, but to be a collaboration showcasing everyone’s craft. We let all the artists do their thing. I feel that when you start telling artist what to do, it holds them back and their raw talent is lost. We didn’t want anyone to hold back with what was in their heart and soul on the day of the shoot. As you can see by these photos and video it was a majestic magical collaboration. I feel that we captured the innocence of a child, the confidence of the woman in her prime, and the knowledge and wisdom of a woman that has lived and has been taught by this thing we call life. This collaboration was done with ages 11 to 49, I’m proud to say i was the oldest one working on this photo shoot. The talent I saw from these young adults is undeniably EPIC!”

It was such a fun time.. Model Danelle Stevens who’s also an incredible designer and artist of @devouthaus actually created the wild lace dress !!
