— Old Norse for shield-maiden

Back in March we spent a weekend styling and shooting this viking maiden look with my sister, Julia. She was such a good sport and put up with all our directions and demands! During that weekend, I realized how much I enjoyed putting together outfits, hair and makeup for a stylized shoot, and Ben enjoyed getting outside with a theme in mind.

We also played around with iris editing and making the landscape a little more moody, which is pretty obvious below... But all in all, it was good practice and even better fun. Below are a few of our favorites!
