Check out more pictures and details from our promotional shoot below.
Doing this shoot was a lot of fun, we were inspired by the sisterhood we share with popcaven and our love of flowers and nature. The concept for this shoot was inspired by the strength and beauty of Dido Elizabeth Belle, "an illegitimate child born to a British admiral and a former slave he loved, brought up as an orphaned, later becoming a beloved member of her father's aristocratic family in 1770s Jane Austen-era England. She was so beloved she was painted as an equal with her white sister/cousin, in marked contrast to the usual subservient poses of black people in paintings of the era". We wanted the shoot to feel like an oil painting from that era similar to the original painting of Dido.
Just as dido was able to celebrate the strong bond with her cousin through art, we are honoring that by celebrating sisterhood through this event with women who love the idea of community empowerment.
