The Golden Cage” photoshoot is inspired by feelings of entrapment. Feelings that we create ourselves, or are build around us. Many times birds will not fly because they don’t understand that escape means freedom, as all they know is their life in captivity. A metaphor for our lives, our fears, our own criticisms of others, and pigeon holding people. Spread your wings and fly, release yourself from all the chains that are holding you back. No matter how perfect, rich, or beautiful the cage may be, it’s still a cage.
Photographer, set design and concept: Maribella Portraits, LLC The beautiful costume designs were created by The Enchanted Co. Hair by The Porcelain Teacup and Makeup by AMBER FRITZ
The Golden cage may be beautiful, but it is still a cage
We seek wisdom outside of ourselves, when we should look internally for the answers.
When you are meant to stand out, instead you sit quietly trying to fit in.
The Bird born in a cage is afraid to fly
Sometimes we are captivated by the rumor mill, spreading gossip instead of living our lives.
You are powered by your own life and your own motivation, to remain within the cage you build is to fail to live.
Hold Fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.”—Langston Hugues
