I have been taking a little bit of a break from blogging and photography.
Getting a new perspective and collecting new inspirations.
Be back soon, with a million photos.
Another image featured in Seequence online magazine.
Insightful and Inspirational.
There are so many awesome images by the great Tim Walker it was hard to pick only a few! Check out his website to continue the inspiration – http://timwalkerphotography.com/
Beauty never fades, when you know what it really means.
My mother is forever beautiful.
This is my mom when she was young at my dad’s cottage, photos taken by my dad.
This girl is gorgeous. In every sense…
I love i-D magazine covers.
Always inspiring and fresh.
Here are just a few.
My nephew Isaiah.
I’m crazy. He is crazy.
We have crazy fun together.

I took a few different images from other series i’ve done and kind of created a new one. It’s called. “Pressure on Women” As a woman myself, the pressure put on us is CRAZY making. There is a lot of pressure on men too, and i’ve attempted some shots portraying that as well, but I am a woman and conceptually speaking way more comes to my mind in that direction. The reason these pressures are associated with death in these pieces, is because I wanted to show that, you will die before you achieve “perfection” as a woman. That is, if perfection to you is defined by others. If you are looking for perfection in your looks, or your supposed “role” as are taught by the media….You might as well die, because it isn’t real. They want us to look to them for the answers, but the answers are in each on of us. Perfection is already in each of us from the beginning. Look Inward, not Outward.
This breaks my heart to think about these little girls growing up with this kind of influence and pressure.
I’ve felt it, and i’m sure you have too.
Let’s stop feeding into it and
promote true confidence.
Check out this video. It impacted me.
I really like this photo by Madi-ju.

This 4 by 5 film camera definitely helped with my deeper understanding of the photography process, but I would never go back! haha
This picture not only reminds me of the camera… but even where my mind was at in photography,
it’s become such a deeper thing to me now.
Back then it was about creating a beautiful picture, now it’s about expressing ideas.
Right and Wrong are illusory.
You define them.
Don’t listen to anyone else.
Just your inner voice.
Follow your excitement!
Behind the scenes from a photoshoot I did last winter.
No, I am not talking about the click of the shutter, but a click that happens within me when I see the right picture. The click that happens, after looking through a ton of pictures i’ve taken when one stands out, when one just clicks and you know that is the “one”. It’s instant. Here is a little preview of what I mean. I went through over a hundred pictures and these two just clicked instantly.
I’ve followed this guy’s work for a while and it’s obviously SICK!! If you haven’t seen it, check it out here www.thatsthespot.com. What inspires me most is his BLOG… the pictures are so good but what I REALLY love are the videos. I love that they are uncensored because let’s face it… censored art SUCKS. Dicks, boobs, weed, blow it’s all there. These videos make it look FUN. Don’t get me wrong, I can tell they work their asses off but I watch videos of behind the scenes photo shoots all the time and it’s always missing the element of FUN. For someone just starting out in the industry and someone who loves photography as a fine art… this renews my interest in commercial photography and gives me some INSPIRATION and HOPE!

Here are a few of my favorite images….
This girl has got lava running through her veins.
You should see her move.
When I discovered this woman’s work I was in shock of the beauty! It gave me a new perspective on my own photography and the things close to me in my life. Her lifestyle and view on life is so honest and real, the intricate beauty of being human.

I found this image on Gwenyth Paltrow’s blog and I love it. It’s perfection to me. I don’t know what it is but I love the feel to it. It feels so natural and beautiful.
This brings me back again to my want to capture candid beauty… not always so set up.
