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! As always, love yourselves.
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.
I’ve put this silk scarf through a lot over the years! Here’s a lovely dancer ensconced in color…you can view and download the set over at patreon!
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.
Tudor time! Celeste of Poppyseed Roll Clothing and I got together with Jordan here for a royal, Tudor inspired shoot. Celeste made this entire outfit, once again blowing my mind with her attention to detail. Jordan made a perfect Tudor model, and don’t worry, managed to keep her head attached to her body. We shot this at Saint Edwards State Park, one of my favorite places in the Pacific Northwest…the first shot is actually part of a playground…work with what you’ve got, right?
