Modern Renaissance Woman

I love going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by myself and getting lost there for hours.  I had been wanting to try some photos that look like something that would have been painted during the Renaissance, so when I met Mikki here, I knew she was the girl for that.  She had the wavy hair and more importantly comfort in her own skin.

Vulnerability

I’ve begun seeing the beauty in vulnerability lately, after tackling some personal issues.  I know many of my subjects feel vulnerable, especially first timers who are not accustom to being nude in front of others.  Once they settle in, however, they tend to find the experience very freeing, therapeutic even.  Since I wouldn’t ask my subjects to do anything I wouldn’t, here is my act of vulnerability…as someone who feels wayyyy more comfortable behind the camera!  An older shot, taken with film and a timer.
