I've been borderline obsessed with all things Ikebana over the last year. So, I reached out to my creative and inspiring friend and Philadelphia photographer, Ian Shiver of Viva Love Photography to have some fun in his South Philly studio. I had a blast sourcing the props and flowers we used. (Check out those Hasami Porcelain bowls I found at Rikumo). I loved exploring Ikebana because it required SO much intentionality when arranging but also freedom in my ability to manipulate the materials we used. Check out a few of my favorites from our session together below!
