MADI apparel | Blush Spring/Summer Collection

I had the best time shooting with MADI Apparel early this year, for their Spring/Summer Collection! MADI stands for ‘Make A Difference Intimates’ & is a company that makes intimates with a buy-one-give-one model. For every pair purchased, a pair is given to a local woman who is an abuse survivor, in a shelter or victim of rape. Beyond that, MADI has a non-profit side, created to train & employ those survivors to then sew the garments themselves. It’s such an amazing company & I love getting to be a part of their story!
SO! This collection is extra special, the items are hand dyed using avocados! Alyx is a local designer who dyed all the fabric for the garments [read her journey with the dye here!] & they are such a beautiful shade of blush. I’ll let you see the items for yourself!
ps. they have other color options & some are pictured here!
Models : Addy & Dieynaba

Saige & I have partnered together before for a shoot & I not only loved what she created, but I absolutely fell in love with her as a person! So when she reached out to me a few weeks ago because she had some spare flowers in her garden [!!!] she wanted to take photos of - I was in. Wrap a beautiful velvet ribbon around that bouquet & take a little walk around the city & here we are!!  Sweet Jillian was our fantastic bouquet holder & she's definitely on my list of people I love shooting with!
All that to say - pretty photos of pretty flowers below. Enjoy!
