3rd Blogiversary!

This year has been really interesting…I paused worrying about selling prints, and just let myself shoot freely.  That break really gave me a lot of freedom, so I think I’m going to listen to myself and do that when I think it’ll help me.  I met some amazing new people to create with…BIG shout out to Celeste at Poppy Seed Roll Costuming for the incredible styling, laughs, and introductions…and continued working with people I love to work with.  I even got a reunion with Heather, my east coast muse!  Winter was difficult, but all my fantastic subjects, especially Lily VonTrapp and Lyz, kept me busy and got me through it.  Now, I just finished shooting the lovelies of After Midnight Cabaret and am working on a little video project for them.  I continued with my naked, honest body love project, and will continue to do so.  Seattle became a lot more fun this past year!

Thank you all for reading and viewing!  If you’d like access to the more naked stuff/full sets you don’t see here, please join me on Patreon!

As always, love yourselves.

Butterflies

I’d been planning this look for awhile.  There’s a particular trail at Saint Edwards State Park that leads you down until you’re completely submerged in nature.  It’s narrow, but not too difficult…unless, of course, you’re dressed like a nature goddess or lugging cameras.  Challenge accepted.  Heather was a trooper as she hiked down while mosquitos feasted on her, plants stabbed her, and the butterflies did their best to jump ship as they snagged on branches.  I worked around the sneakers.

Don’t worry….she made it down in one piece.  We ended the shoot at the bottom and relaxed near the lake and watched a bird of prey soar level with the water.  It was a nice day.

Personal growth ain’t always pretty, darlings…sometimes you have to get messy, get raw, get primal, and get REAL.  I wanted to capture that here…no makeup, and no skin retouching whatsoever.  And you know what?  I felt a really cool surge of power after shooting this.  I felt free.  Do the scary thing, whatever that means for you.
