Why Shoot Film?

About three years ago, I purchased a Canon AE-1 from a local antique store. The guy gave it to me for, I believe, $10, since he was unsure if it worked or not. I quickly watched a youtube video on the basics of using it, ok I got this, I said, as I loaded the…

The Diary of a Round-Shaped Face

Recently I chopped a good five inches off my hair. I’ve been trying to do things that I wouldn’t normally do. Although I’m not a stranger to the DIY haircut lifestyle, I haven’t rocked a bob in many years. Often I attribute my femininity to the length of my hair. No matter where I am…

An Ode To the Cafeteria Girls

Summer before fifth grade I started my very own fashion blog, embarrassingly titled “Chunky Funky Monkeys”. That year I wore polka dot dresses with striped tights, already acknowledging  the way in which my classmates would treat me. I began to regret wearing a certain outfit to school, wishing I’d opted for jean shorts and a…

Our Bodies Our Art-Chapter 1

#ourbodiesourart Three weeks ago, I made a post on my Instagram, as well as on my blog, introducing a hashtag, #ourbodiesourart. I was hesitant to share my idea, as I feared there would be very little participation. I was happily proven wrong. Over the past three weeks I have been collecting the thoughts and artwork…

With all disregard to science, people never stop self evolving. This is the thought process that got me off my bedroom floor four…

Going Nowhere

Something I don’t talk about too much is how I style my shoots, or that I style all my shoots. Honestly, this is a job I’d never like to give to someone else. From selling vintage at Unamused Apparel, to collecting vintage pieces, I’ve accumulated a lot of clothes, so I have an extensive, time…

Our Bodies Our Art

Calling ALL female and female identifying photographers and models!! I have worked towards building my platform as a place that celebrates working with what you’ve got, a place where humor, sincerity, and the bizarre, all combine to make, what I hope is, a fun little world. But, overall, I have created Thrifts and Prints as…

Life as a Thrift Store

One of my earlier memories involves me in a thrift store, I’m in a horrible mood, and I don’t want to be there. “Everything is so gross” I’m thinking to myself, carefully picking out the oldest, most pilly shirt in the store to justify my thoughts. I kept thinking of the  crisp, brand new, pink…
