Carena West // Half French Braid

Carena West // Half French Braid

This is easily one of my favorite shoots Braids & Bikinis has done so far. Kassia Phoy is an amazing wedding photographer in LA and dear friend of mine! We shot this series at the Hollywood Mondrian Hotel pool. She crushed it. I will always admire Kassia's use of natural lighting and her fun, playful poses she uses with models! Kassia is such a treasure and amazing woman to be around and I highly recommend her for any wedding you might be having this summer! 

The Mondrian Hotel and SkyBar is a gorgeous place! Catering to the elite of Hollywood for their pool parties and daily happy hours is it the perfect place to spot a local celebrity. The Mondrian has a gorgeous pool area complete with a floral wall which you'll see more photos in the future! 

The suit I'm wearing is a brand out of New Zealand, Carena West. They were amazing enough to send several samples our way and this was easily my favorite piece! I'm very fortunate to have established a friendship with them and can't wait to show you more!
