I have been a little behind the eight-ball posting this gorgeous shoot because I received it last week on the same day I went into labour. I love the shoot – it’s so little house on the prairie!!
The shoot was the Summer lookbook for Mariah Makalapua’s label Medicine and Headdress. Mariah hand makes everything for the label herself, and like her jewelry she wanted her lookbook to emphasize raw and natural beauty.
They also collaborated with a local vintage shop called Animal Traffic. It was all shot on Amanda’s trusty Olympus OM-1 out in a small rural community in the Willamette Valley Oregon.
