This isn’t the first time I’ve featured Kel Ward’s work, and it sure isn’t the last. I loooove her style!! I think I must ask her monthly if I can feature her!! This time, it’s a boudoir shoot, but rather than being whiter than white, this one dances with the darkness (particularly with the model Hailey’s Twin Peaks tattoo). It also has a neat nod towards sci-fi, what with that covetable metallic crop-top. That’s what I see, anyway! And you just know these are the details that turn my alternative-loving head…


The Story of the Shoot by Kel

“I love bridal sessions, but really wanted to mix things up for this shoot with Hailey, since she’s so non-traditional. Instead of the typical white for veil and lingerie, we opted for black. I made the skirt and veil, while Hailey, a fashion blogger, supplied the rest of the items from her own closet.

“The session was done in my natural light studio in Portland, Oregon and was shot as a hybrid session, meaning both film and digital cameras were used.

“The make-up, which was done by Nicole Muñoz, complemented the hairstyle and tattoos perfectly.”
