Urban Indigenous Women – Spring // creative session

Spring. It’s a time of beginnings, I’ve been told.

I’ve been thinking about my Urban Indigenous Women collection lately, as it’s been getting some good reviews and PR. I had done Winter and Fall already, and it just so happened I met a young fancy dancer, and it felt right.

Spring, for me, is about the re-emergence of hope. This whole series has been a reflection of where I am/was during a pretty private process of my own, and Spring was about finding the joy again. Fall was about being lost. Winter was about going into my own cave, my own darkness, and healing. Spring, is about coming into the light, seeing colour again, and taking those first few steps into joy.



Huge thanks to JoHannah for trusting me with her image and regular, and to Kacey for interpreting my random inspiration into beautiful makeup. You can also read about how the process from Inspiration into Session came to be at the tea&bannock blog.
