We love a sweet family photo session, and this mother-daughter shoot takes the cake for cuteness – and most stylish. Mom, Torie, doubles as a hair & makeup artist so there’s no surprise their! Her and her mini me, plus their pup, roamed the park in their pretty duds (outfit details below!). Not only do we get to fawn over the photos, but also we can learn how to recreate Torie’s gorgeous braided hairdo with her boho hair tutorial. Read on for the how-to!
Tiffany Von Photography shares, The shoot was a springtime lifestyle mommy-daughter shoot, capturing the two of them in their own environment highlighting their sweet relationship. They are both so fun, and have a love for all things bohemian, whimsical & magical. When I first met Torie, I was so inspired by her personality and love for what she does. She absolutely owns the girl boss mentality and definitely paves her own way in life! Her boho braiding is beautiful & I wanted that to be a main focus in the photos too. I love photographing women who are passionate about their career, life, family & what they do — not only is it inspiring, but it allows me to really tell a story and let their personality shine through photos!
To begin this style I added in my 24in Luxy Hair clip in extensions. These gave my hair about 4 inches extra length, major thickness and color dimension
2. Take a good size section of hair from which ever side of your head you prefer (pretty much the whole front quadrant of your hair). Holding that section in your hand, leave out about a one inch section from underneath and move it out of the way for now.
3. Now fishtail the large section. Once you get to the bottom, before adding an elastic, pancake out the fishtail (pancake is to pull apart the braid section by section until it is as wide as you would like) add the elastic.
4. It’s time for that 1 inch section we left out. Do a regular 3 strand braid. (I pulled at a little bit for more texture)
5. Part out the very top of your fishtail and insert the 3 strand braid from the back of the fishtail through to the front. Secure the two together with an elastic. (For extra security you can add some Bobby pins from the back of the fishtail through to the braid, being sure they don’t poke through and become visible).
6. Take a small section from the tail end of the braids and wrap it around the elastic for a more organic look. Pin from behind.
7. On the opposite side of your head take a small section from underneath and throw in a 3 strand braid. Working my way from the bottom up I pancaked out random sections of the braid instead of all of them. Again, for a fun mix in texture. Get creative, there are no rules in braiding.
