Finally taking a moment to sit down & update my business cards with all my new contact info - i've been buried in prep for all the shoots that are coming up over these next two months. 📸 I'm so excited to start sharing new work with you all very soon!
These are the photos I am showing for my critique on Thursday. I had to dig deep within myself and step way outside my comfort zone to take these. Art has always been my way to express myself. Art has always been a way for me to react to things. To become these two people, I had to connect with them. I had to connect with that sense of the powerful vs. the powerless. I am not a victim of sexual assault, but I know what it’s like to be manhandled by someone who thought they had a right to my being. We live in crazy, fucked up world. That’s something so many people won’t admit. Now that I will be sorry for🖤 #photography#photographystudent#photographer#nikon#nikond7500#nikonphotography#studioportraits#studioportraiture#sexualassult#sexualharassment#art
One thing I really love about portrait photography is the collaboration.
Everyone collaborates at their own individual level. Most people are able to open up and share great moments... but others take it to that next level.
A place that is super present but also flowing with energy and movement. This gives way to dope moments that live on after the shot has been taken.
This shot is of actor @kyleharris who currently plays Eli on @godfriendedme on @cbstv . He is someone I love working with cause he is always game to jump in and create. Thanks Kyle!
It's World Kindness Day today and it also happens to be my favorite client Barbara's birthday!
This photograph wasn't staged but it describes Barbara's spunky personality perfectly. We had SO much fun during her session, obviously!
Barbara is in her 80's, yet she managed to organized a photoshoot for her family all by herself. She's SO good with technology that until recently she owned a Snapchat account. I absolutely love her sense of humor! 🎂🎂🎂 Barbara, Happy Birthday! Your taste for life and young spirit are absolutely contagious! I'm so glad to have met you. I hope you have a fabulous day! ❤️❤️❤️
