Wire Crown Handmade By TyTanisha L. Zacharie
Hello everyone! I have another post of my personal work for today. Does this crown look familiar?? Well, it should because it's my original DIY Wire Crown! I'm selling the crown that I taught you guys how to make. I've had my fun with it & I'd like to pass it along to someone else. :)
I tried doing this Mermaid on Land kind of thing. I edited the pictures to look like a fantasy. I hope it looks like that to you guys. I had fun taking these photos. My model is so fabulous and she did an incredible job. Her modeling really helped my vision come to life as wanted. The link for my Etsy Shop is down below. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Black & Gold Wire Crown


Model: Darin Persyn
Wire Crown Handmade By TyTanisha L. Zacharie
Photographer: TyTanisha L. Zacharie
Hello guys. I know I haven't blogged a post in a while. This month has been crazy for me. I kept having problems with getting a model for this crown. I finally found one to work with and we took the photos yesterday. Darin is an extraordinary model and easy to work with. Yesterday was my first time meeting and working with her. Everything went by so smoothly.

In this shoot, I experimented with a new method I've learned about. I got the inspiration from Emily Soto Fashion Photographer. I talked to her through a facebook comment about this method that I saw her use in a video. She put mesh over her camera lense as she took pictures. She told me that she used the mesh to make the photos look hazy. I found that very cool and decided to try it out myself. Can you guys tell which ones I did with the mesh overlay?

I'm selling my DIY Black & Gold Wire Crown on my Etsy Shop. I told Darin to go for a Dark Bohemian kind of theme. I figured it would mix very well with the whimsy & imperfection of the crown. Darin styled the crown very well! The link for the crown is down below. I'll put the link to Darin's model page down below too! She has done such awesome things. I hope you guys enjoy! :)

Black Embroidery Lace Hair Bow



Model: Christina Charo
Handmade Bow by TyTanisha L. Zacharie
Photographer: TyTanisha L. Zacharie

Hello Everyone! I have another set of photos for another hair bow today. I'm selling 5 of these lace hair bows on my Etsy shop. I kept in mind the same concept as the last post for this one. I got a lot more sunlight when doing these pictures. I really loved how the sun reflected on most of these pictures. The wind was in my favor too! I enjoyed doing these pictures as much as the last one. All these pictures are practice for me. I only hope to show you guys how much I progress within time. They are all unedited pictures. I keep them all completely natural.
Below I have the links for my Etsy Shop, Facebook Page, and my Email Address. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on anything.

Black Grey Damask Hair Bow



Model: Reanna Witherspoon
Bow Handmade by TyTanisha L. Zacharie
Photographer: TyTanisha L. Zacharie

Hello Everyone! Today's post consist of photography by me. I took these pictures with my roommates camera. My grandparents actually surprised me with one of my own for my birthday!! I was too happy to finally have a camera of my own. Capturing the natural light was a huge goal of mine for these pictures. I picked up some knowledge about lighting in photography. So, I'm trying to do experimentations of my own. Sunrise and Sunset times are always the best for lighting.

I had fun taking these pictures. My friend here isn't a career model but I think she did an excellent job. I can't afford to use real models. So, I use friends that I think would look great with my stuff. I mainly did this photo session for my handmade bow. I made five of these babies to sell on my Etsy shop. I want to start off  with small amounts of small little fun things. I will progress within time. So, expect to see more on my Etsy within the year.

I wanted to show you guys how you can style this bow. So, that's why some of these photos aren't entirely focused on the bow. Also, I tried to have more fun with taking the pictures. I told the model that she could style the bow however she wanted to. Many females wear bows, but in their own type of way. Age and style vary around with accessories like this.

Below I have the link to my shop to make purchases. If you'd like a customized bow, just let me know. My facebook page or email will probably be the best way to reach me. I'll put the info for those down below also.
