“Just because she was abandoned, does not mean she is lost.”
Women, on our own and making do with what we have. What a novel idea. To find strength in our current season and inspiration from our surroundings. We love what this story represents for many reasons, number one being we know Hannah’s heart well and how fiercely she uplifts women through her approach to boudoir. She sees it as a time “to celebrate your delicacy, independence, imperfections, and curves. It is a celebration of what comes from within you.” Secondly, we watched her bring this vision to life and couldn’t wait to explore more deeply her thought process while putting this all together.
“I learned of a place just at the foot of South Mountain in Phoenix called Scorpion Gulch. A roofless abandoned home with cement walls and rooms and compartments that inspire wonder and curiosity. Miranda, the stylist, and I decided we wanted to tell a story of a free spirit that calls this house her home. She prances around and makes do with what she has. She is comfortable in her skin and she is confident in her independence.
"With outdoor spaces like this one, it is important to be prepared for visitors. To have a robe nearby, and to dress modestly, as revealing clothing was not the purpose of this session. It was to empower Maria, to show women everywhere that we can make it on our own, and that it is not necessary to wear sexy lingerie to portray your strong femininity.”
