Petal Slipdress

Inspiration: Euphorbia and Senara in Hawaii

“Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.” – Nikki Rowe

Do you ever wonder what gives some photos that little something extra? Sure, you've got to have a talented group of people, and beautiful things to shoot, preferably in a breathtaking location. Whatever it is that adds the magic, this photoshoot, styled by Utterly Engaged and photographed for Donny Zavala’s workshop, has loads of it. The quote from Nikki Rowe painted the picture for this project and it was brought to life by the colors of the sunset on an Oahu beach, a bouquet of eucalyptus and garden roses (that looks like it washed up from some garden at the bottom of the ocean), and a crown fit for the goddess of the sea.
