Meluxine – Contemplate Your Fate

I was catching up with Meluxine the other day. And we both agreed that this shoot, our first time ever collaborating together, still remains one of our favorite shoots either of us have been a part of. I think we had been reached a place in our respective work that needed a refresh somehow. Going back to remembering why we loved to do this kind of thing in the first place.

Carlotta Champagne – Touch Down

It was Carlotta Champagne who reminded me a few weeks ago that I was injured when I did the photoshoot that resulted in this beautiful photo with her.

Ivory Flame – Resilience Ascending

Meluxine – Dress Handfuls

    Meluxine – Dress Handfuls “Aw, we lost the sun,” Meluxine said, as she noticed the gorgeous shafts of sunlight that until very recently had been beautifully falling on her through the window, had faded away.

Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows

  Anne Duffy – Crown of Shadows Anne has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever come to know. I’ve felt that way since before I actually got to work with her years ago. Her portfolio is full of some of the most striking images I’ve ever seen. All week we’d been talking …

Jessamyne – Dressed to the 9am

  Jessamyne – Dressed to the 9am “You know, if you grab a handful of those sheets and pull, it creates some really beautiful lines,” I suggested to Jessamyne. And we were off! I love it when an idea like that just kind of presents itself. She began to play with various way to pull …
