Contrived to Charm


Contrived to Charm is a handcrafted leather company from San Diego that creates unique belts inspired by vintage nostalgia. For the spring/summer lookbook, artisan Tiffany Laing reached out to me to collaborate on an Anne of Green Gables "bosom friends" inspired shoot.

The theme encapsulates all things innocently girly: primping, braiding hair, playing cat's cradle, getting lost in a good book, and dancing in the afternoon light with your kindred spirit before laying down for a nap.

I utilized only natural light to maintain the airy, whimsical vibe, and played up the vintage peachy tones in post. The backlight coming through the bedroom window gave the whole room a beautiful glow reminiscent of a sleepy summer afternoon.
