all about that Bokeh. Melinda Pike Photography - Hawaii Lifestyle and Commercial Photographer

“She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”
—J. D. Salinger, “A Girl I Knew”

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart; I am, I am, I am.”

—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

This shoot was inspired by a dream I awoke with very little memory of. It was of a girl walking along a path and I saw bokeh everywhere, surrounding her. The dream was beautiful. When I met Hailey, I knew she was the right model for the shoot. Her look is so enchanting and gentle. The light was exactly as I'd hoped and these images required very little editing, if any. For Hailey's hair, I wanted it to be a chic but loose style with pretty braiding and Kalee at Elegance by Ellison knew exactly what I wanted!

She totally saw my vision and I am so thankful she was able to work this shoot with me. I later found a video by Amber Fillerup who does hair tutorial's on YouTube which features a similar styling tutorial. Amber Fillerup is known for her beautiful hair styling techniques and I'll link the video below.
