Latex Body Glitter

C and I created this latex, body glitter shoot last week! Working with glitter and nude models are my favorite combo! As I was leading her into the woods to this beautiful tree, she says : “Yeah, I’ve seen your work, I knew you’d have me posing in the woods!” LOL. This latex paint was INSANE, I’m glad we had a crew to help with the makeup and painting. More shoots like this PLEASE

Chap & Sjaan Engagment

This is my first SURPRISE engagment session with Chap and Sjaan. WOW this was an experience. Chap had been secret texting me, showing me where to hide and how to sneak into their backyard for the week. I managed not to be seen and caught this real moment. Afterwards we had some breakfast and headed off for a photoshoot. These two own Fig Jam Studio and do wedding videography. A stellar team, I’m honored to be able to capture their love. 

Final Hawaii

I’ve been putting off this blog post for way too long BUT I have an excuse. After traveling back to Charleston from Hawaii, I’ve been feeling manic and anxious. I had the best time of the islands, but getting back to the mainland has been a spiral of tasks and readjusting. Being full time freelance, it’s hard to “turn off” and give myself time to be. Even while on vacation, I was a storm of creation and inspiration. WHICH IS WONDERFUL, but allowing yourself to rest and process is just as important. 

So here it is folks, the last day on the island. We had a beautiful ridge hike that ended with a magical rainbow. WHAT A PERFECT SEND OFF!!!! Thank you Caleigh for always inspiring me and making these amazing pieces that I will never forget. I love you!
