Merry Christmas! - From The Fashion House Of Nenuphar Flower

On November 18th we did our christmas shoot for the year!

Models: Biankha Rose & Hailey A. Porter
Makeup: Stephanie Walker
Photography & Wardrobe: Nenuphar Flower
Hair: Renee Chaput

Wanting to do an indoor shoot but not enough time to book a studio we decided to turn my living room into a studio of our own! After lots of furniture rearranging and setting up all the christmas decorations we brought in bright lights and got the day rolling. 

The inspiration for this shoot was an image that came into my mind the week before. It was of two characters. One being dressed in cool colours and have a snooty but quirky air about her. She would be glamorous and proper but slurp loudly when sipping concoctions and snort when chuckling. The other character would seem like a child and be dressed in warm colours. She would roll her eyes at the other's properness, amuse herself without even saying a word and constantly look for objects to explore. They would be a perfect contrast. To enhance that contrast, their costumes and makeup were coloured to suite and the one model was most of the time positioned on higher ground as well as being 5 inches taller. 

I feel the effect brought some elements of high fashion, with lots of hints of a goofy old black and white film, a sort of sad blue christmas feel and at the same time an adorably dysfunctional happy christmas. Lastly, there was just the slightest bit of creepiness that came in at the perfect dose to have some cool photos to play with.   

Enjoy! Have an absolutely wonderful Christmas with lots of yummy food, loving friends and family. Nurture your connections with all the wonderful people in your life this holiday.

The Evolution

Inspiring. Motivational. Eye-opening. 

Take a moment to look around and absorb 
the incredible things that are happening in our world right now.

    Sure there is crazy shit happening too but I'm talking about this shift that is so prominent it shakes me to the core. People all over the world are shifting their vibrations, they are discovering their purpose and opening their eyes to a knew approach on this world. So many people are in this place of transformation or just exposing there inner light. The greatest thing is that they are all occurring it individually but with the same connected sensation. Whether it's political, spiritual or art there is a shift happening. I believe we are ascending to a new level of consciousness. I know I'm on this bandwagon, more realization and transformation has occurred in my mind and my atmosphere in the last month then ever in my life.

Check these out.


Are you feeling this shift? Are you inspired? 

November 8th Kitsilano Beach Photo Shoot

Photographer: Nenuphar Flower
Makeup: Lucille Stewart-Nihte
Model: Biankha Flower
Wardrobe: Nenuphar Flower

     On November 8th I gathered a team together for a day of photo shoots. We did 2 shoots with completely different themes and locations. This is the 1st of the two. 

    We did all our hair and makeup and then headed out like a troop in search for the perfect location. It wasn't long before we came across a small nook by Kitsilano Beach. Biankha was of course delighted to jump into the incredibly freezing water and barely hesitated. 
    While we were shooting a log drifted into our area which became a perfect (but not so easy to work with) prop. 
    It felt so right to have such a big team (five people). This was the first in at least a few months that I had gotten out my camera and even longer since I had done a creative photo shoot. In that moment I realized how much I needed to be collaborating and incorporating all of my creative outlets in everything I do. 
   This was the start to the bigger picture, the catapult I needed to embark on the journey of a lifetime.   

"She touches the Sea and immediately feels the rush of power, comfort, and purpose. This is her home, what fuels her and connects her with everything outside of our grasp."

"When she occurs this knowledge, nothing else is in her view. She is no longer limited by her senses. She has awoken.
She sees possibility in every touch, every movement, every thought."

"Every drip and every drop holds power and realization, and with the wave of her sage that picture becomes clearer."

"She stands a symbol of the earth, a symbol of the element and a warrior for awakening."
