Holdfast: MoneyMaker

February 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

For those of you who have never worked with me or seen me work….it is time you know…I usually have at least two camera bodes with different film installed and then my dSLR all wrapped around my tiny torso at one time. Usually resulting in my assistants chasing after me trying to de-tangle the mess of straps surrounding me, while I run down the beach and roll myself and my cameras through the sand. Soooo the second I saw the money maker by HoldFast….my heart melted. Just my style with the beautiful leather, it will be durable, functional and stylish. My birthday is just around the corner!!! Hint Hint Nudge Nudge. 😉

I’m pretty sure I’m in love with the MoneyMaker.

My first debut on the sweet cheeks site. As the photographer I am usually the one behind the camera…this time I did the modeling. My artist bio and announcement is coming to the sweet cheeks website soon! Until then check out the new undies, trust me when I say, they are both comfy and cute! 🙂

A special thanks to Mark Thompson who made modeling in my underwear not so weird.

The world of daydreams with Avery

January 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

What to say and where to begin. I have never been great with words, always finding it easier to express myself through images and art. As a tween my diary was filled with countless magazine clippings covering every page making a vibrant book of shapes and colors.

When I see something or someone that inspires me I find myself with a severe inability to act like anything other than a highly caffeinated chiwawa chasing after a goal never quite within reach . Running full speed at the prize in site, throwing caution to the wind and bumbling with the right words to say. However, as we are all told, nothing worth doing is ever easy.

The day I met Avery was no different. The comfortable and confident woman I have become vanished, knowing there is something so personal about capturing someone in an image I find it unbearable hard to stay calm, confident and strong during the first introduction.

She was gorgeous, like a character from another world. I have to say asking for her permission to capture her in a portfolio fashion series was a scary moment I will never regret. An amazing young woman, with a heart as big as her creativity. Fourteen years old, with beautiful pale skin and a face you cant help but stare at a muse in every sense of the term.

A special thanks to Avery and her wonderful family, Camille V for the beautiful hair and makeup.


Today we lost a legend: RIP Etta James

Easily, one of the most influential women in music.

If you don’t think you know who she is, Wikipedia that shit! I guarantee you have heard her wonderful voice before or at least heard the countless re-makes of her songs by modern artists such as Christina Aguilera, Beyonce and Adele. Etta James is best know for having bridged the gap between rhythm and blues and rock and roll.
Her voice will stay with me forever. From my childhood days of listening to her voice radiating from the record player and filling our house with her amazing sounds to the entire section of my MP3s with her name on it. You have changed our world of the better Etta James…thank you for bringing us all such wonderful music.

Seriously amazing women!

I have to admit, ever since I was a kid I have always said that I’m excited to be an old lady, because you can wear what ever you want!

However, in the past few years, I have been working on telling myself the same thing every day. No one has the right to judge you for what you wear. Why wait till I’m old? I am going to begin a test, every morning when I wake up I will put on an outfit that is inspired by whatever mood I am feeling or how I want to feel for the day. To hell with the judgments! Everybody, men, women, old, young, WEAR WHAT YOU WANT!

These women are a true inspiration.
