Melanie Laurene - Free People Inspired Jewellery Session

I try and exemplify vulnerability not only in my brand & business, but also in my day-to-day life. It has become a cornerstone of who I am, and is a quality that is sure to attract me to other people. We are not able to better ourselves without the help of those around us, which is why allowing ourselves to be vulnerable is a quality that I have always treasured & encouraged in others. It's a sense of helplessness & grandiose trust all in the same breath. Being vulnerable allows us to put all that we've got into something so much bigger than ourselves, and it lets us watch as our visions come to life and become so much more incredible than we ever could have imagined. Collaborations don't always go amazingly--this wouldn't be real life if they did; but, when everyone comes together, passion-aglow & the allowance of vulnerability, magical things can happen. kaihla_tonai_intimate_wedding_elopement_photographer_0042

These images could have only happened thanks to a crucial group of incredible people; without each and every one of them, this session wouldn't have been as incredible & soul-satisfying. Every jewellery piece you see pictured in ANY of the images below can be found on melanielaurene's Etsy shop :) P.S Melanie is having a MAJOR sale (40% OFF) over on her Etsy shop today ONLY until Midnight, so head over there for some RAD deals!!
