Bohemian Shoot Inspiration

I have been DYYYING to do a boho/hippie photo shoot. Messy hair, piled on jewelry, layers of clothing and accessories, really just that over the top feel. For inspiration, I am turning to a few of my favorite bloggers/photographers and as always a little bit of pinterest.

A fairly popular photo floating around pinterest.

I don’t know where I am going to get pounds of jewelry, I will have to borrow from a few girlfriends. I think this shoot will definitely require soft golden hour lighting (golden hour is the last 30 to 45 minutes of the day when the lighting is PERRRFECT).

A dark smokey eye is a must!! I’m also loving the all black (not something I normally do). I also love the light airiness of all white with chunky bling and maybe a hair accessory and some braids.

I wish I had a horde of models to dress up and pose, along with an old station wagon or hippie van. I know it’s cliche and over the top, but that is what the idea behind this shoot is. There is a time and a place for subtlety as well as crazy, wicked, over the top.

I’m excited to put my own spin on something like this. I think I’ll title it something expected like Young, Wild and Free. I won’t know until it’s done. This isn’t any kind of concrete thing, just a vague idea/guideline to inspire me for the shoot. It’s always best to go in with some kind of idea and not just wing it; it’s very difficult to direct a model/models if you are trying to come up with your plan on the spot.
