Here is a (very) quick look at a steamy scene between Second Floor and Gaping Lotus. There’s too many from this shoot that I squeal and squeee over!
Today proved to be a last minute adventure with (model) Britt and (Rigger) Bunny!
Goodness has life been BUSY! Forgive me while I catch up on sharing art and collaborations from the past few months! So many life changes. Moving across the city. Starting a full time job. Starting school (again). Losing 40 pounds on a radical health journey. It’s been mayhem. But, I’m finding my groove. And the stronger my roots become, the greater the itch to CREATE.
So much growth. So much chaos. So much love.
Here is a teaser of a steamy couples shoot. *drool*
So when I say I love this human, I mean that I was at her birth of her last child. She was at mine. I attended her wedding when I had the plague because I didn’t want to miss it. She is seriously one of the realest and funniest women I have in my close circle.
All that to say, when she contacted me with an unconventional (but brilliant!) boudoir theme around food, it was a hard fast YES. (Ok, who am I kidding? I’d take anyone up on food boudoir.) It quickly turned into this Victoria Secret Angel inspired dreamy food goodness.
Her wife adores how she looks when she’s stuffing her face! Ha! Thus, the Pizza+Cupcake+Tacos Boudoir shoot was born!
I participated in a kinky auction a few months back in which I donated a photoshoot to help raise funds for a fellow kinkster in the community.
I’m almost positive this shoot was bought for $5! Ha! They took a risk on a photographer they didn’t know, and we made some serious magic happen today.
Here are some sneak peeks.
Trigger Warning: Stillbirth
It was my first one to photograph. (In the past, I have photographed a baby that passed shortly after arriving earth side.) When I see these things, there’s no question in my mind to stop what I’m doing, and go to the mothers side. I literally cannot imagine what they must be going through, and how priceless these photos will be to them.
The whole experience wrecked me. I was in such a dark place after I left the hospital. Continually falling down a dark hole. It was like fire eating up my spirit. I knew I needed an artistic release before it was too late. The very next day, a friend and I collaborated in a shoot that would allow the bulk of darkness to escape me.
I’ve held onto the images for this long without sharing, because I didn’t want to have to ask the parents if I could write about it. I didn’t want to reopen that wound. I’ve decided to keep all the details of the experience to myself, for now. And I’ll share someday perhaps, with their blessing.
Dudior, guys. This was my first ever Dudior shoot (from last year) and it totally got me hooked!
I met Traci when I first got into the scene in 2014. She’s someone I hold in a special place within my spirit. She radiates an unparalleled energy that is just joyous as it is infectious. Both of us being photographers, sometimes we get together for little rendezvous. And these little adventures, never disappoint.
This was the first time I got to shoot her and her lover. It was, magic. Intimate. Playful. Raw. Sexy. Rowdy. I was giggling, drooling, and squee-ing the whole time. The normal field of energy Traci carries, was just lit aflame when she settled into her element with her lover. He was a magnifier. The energy was electrifying! Watching the eb and flow of the power exchange in such a primal fashion was glorious on all fronts. I can’t wait till our next adventure.

I don’t know why suspensions continually bring me back to births.
Perhaps it’s the energy. The challenges. The process. The pain. The tears. The defeats.
The energy exchange is so similar to when I photograph a birth. I think with birth and suspension, there is always transcendence.
Thank you, Sam, for inviting me into your space.
