Imani Thomas


Every day it seems I’m stumbling upon some well-kept secret in Madrid. El Palacio de Cristal de la Arganzuela is definitely one of those little-known treasures. If you do visit Spain’s capital, likelihood is that you’ll go to the more popular “palacio” cousin in Retiro Park. However, I love the Arganzuela. With 4 zones of interesting plant-life separated by tall cases of glass, this Secret Garden was perfect for a shoot with blogger and world traveler, Imani Thomas.




Imani was incredibly fun to work with. She was down to wrap huge leaves around her body, jump in cacti gardens (while no one was looking) and vogue with the best of ’em. We spent our brief but sweet time exploring the subtropical and desert zones of the crystal palace, while of course, catching glimpses of inspiring light.




Thanks, Imani, for a fun time!

Until next time,

Raquel ❤
