Frida Kahlo shoot at Bonita Bonita

Words by Julia Jones

I’ve always had a mild obsession with Mexican muse, Frida Kahlo, so when this collaboration inspired by the iconic artist came our way, I was pretty excited to share it.

When a friend’s stunning Mexican restaurant opened its doors, Keshia Gesundheit of Glass Slipper Photography immediately saw the opportunity to use the unique space for a creative shoot. “I was taken a back by the incredible details and artwork that had gone into making Bonita Bonita such an extraordinary space,” she says of the Gold Coast venue. “The cogs soon started turning, and as a fan of Frida, it was easy to fall in love with the place and design a shoot around her.”

As an eco-conscious artist, Keshia actively sought like-minded vendors, teaming up with Signs Of Wear and The Borrowed Nursery for styling, with stunning florals by Skeleton Leaf and a gorgeous two-piece dress from Fabled and True. “Like us, they too use up-cycled and sustainable products,” she says. “It was fantastic to create an edgy, steamy wedding shoot that was also environmentally conscious.”
