the magpie bird is of the crow family and are believed to be one of the most intelligent animals. in the UK, the magpie has been associated with an urban myth of being collectors and thieves of shiny objects. although, there is no evidence in wildlife studies.
magical, mystical, myth.
this photo shoot my friend laura and i cooked up in about an hour…and i am kind of obsessed with it. it all sprang up with some feathers we found downtown and laura’s beautiful handmade jewelry she brought with her. i am simply in love with the creativity we both threw in, the styling, laura’s beauty, our pagan inspiration, and that we did it on a whim. continuing with laura’s veil and hidden mother inspiration and art, she wanted to disguise her face. i also loved when she threw in her “what if i eat the chain and then vomit it up?”
this kind of combined inspiration doesn’t come along often and it is my favorite kind! i am sort of savoring this post and can’t seem to narrow down the images. i also, can’t wait to do more collaborations!!
