if i could title this shoot it might have to be nostalgic. growing up we had a tipi that we would set up camp in the house, on the front lawn, at the beach…anywhere! instantly you were transported into a make believe world. maybe i was just taping into the 1/16 ‘native american’ i have in me??! either way it was amazing and so is this rad tipi designed and made by kimmel kids.
