I've found a lot of interesting things at flea markets over the years but last summer was a true first when I found this kid. Her name is Olive ("like the vegetable" she clarified) and she was helping out her Grandmother who has been selling at the Rosebowl Flea for years. At just 8 years old she already had great style and a big personality. Luckily, I got some contact info and a few months later I arranged to photograph her. Working with a great team they helped me to create one of my all time favorite shoots for the very cool UK magazine Smallish.
Into the shoot we incorporated much of her Grandmother's amazing vintage collection of cloths and props, like this Victorian jacket and old violin. You can check out some of her stuff in her Etsy shop 3birdz. Here we paired it with a beautiful Tutu du Monde dress via Rainey's Closet. I found the tin carousel on eBay and my amazing stylist (who also painted the backdrop) Corrie turned it into a headband. So fun. You can check out more from this shoot on my just updated site.
