Sometimes, I get a picture in my head. This tea party at the abandoned farm was one of them. I was fortunate to have these ladies make the trip to create these images with me. IG credits from left to right: @meanwhileinthecostumeshop, @lilyvontrapp, @sisterite (who MADE that gorgeous headpiece), @miss_angel_inez, and @jayniejezebel. I just gave the instructions for decadent outfits, and they pulled through beautifully!
We are the weirdos, Mister….
Miss Angel Inez bravely posing among many, many sharp things…
Third shoot with Mari, and hopefully there will be many more! My cat butts in on shoots like you wouldn’t believe, so I made him his own instagram account: @slinkythecatmodel.

The exquisite Lily VonTrapp came over to shoot some pin up/boudoir…I had texted her a picture of the green fabric I picked up, and she offered to bring her Poison Ivy burlesque outfit to play with. Obviously, that was a no-brainer 😉 I love all ivy details she came up with! It’s a little hard to see here, but if you look close, you’ll see that her lipstick goes from red to green!
In other news, I’ve started a Patreon page! I’ll be sharing fuller photo sets there, never before seen shots, and migrating most nude work over there as well. I’ll be sharing more about my personal journey as a photographer and a subject there, and digging deep on confidence and how people can feel better in their own skin. You can even sign up for a monthly print club! Link is here: Patreon
With your support, I can reach more people, create more intricate shoots, and help heal those who need it! Thank you in advance.
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.
