Studios Magazine

Getting around to scanning things, blogging, and all the other things I should be doing. This lil article came out earlier this year.  I feel a little silly about sharing it but here ya go!  Thanks to all of those who have helped me chip away to get at the heart of life.

Hair & Such

Last month I was lucky enough to collaborate with two very lovely and talented ladies, Brittany Watson Jepson of the blog The House That Lars Built and Rubi of She Lets Her Hair Down.  I was able to photograph the magic they created together with along Caitlin, the lovely model.  

You should check out both Brittany and Rubi's DYI hair styles and floral hairpiece tutorials on their blogs, they are both so talented. Here are the links:

A Chair, Michelle and a Mask

Yesterday I decided that today would be dedicated to doing what I wanted to do and what I love.  LOVE...

Love keeps coming to my mind when I think of today.  I woke up and went on a search for my stool (I am laughing right now at the double meaning of that statement... but you know the one I mean), I have been dreaming of a nice, simple chair and today I was going to get it!  It took a few different shops to find it but when I did I knew we belonged together, it was love.  I had asked a bride of mine if she wouldn't mind sitting for me, she was sweet enough to come spend time with me and allow me to position her around my studio like the lovely doll she is, it was magic.

As you will see I also purchased some animal masks and wanted to bring them to life. 

I am not sure why I am so attracted to creepy animal masks, I love the way they tear reality from itself and offer a bit of narrative.

I fell in love with my space again today.  I fell in love with light again.  I fell in love with solitude.  I fell in love with calm and quiet.
