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…

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…

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…

Prom Queen-The Art of Turning off Men

Normally I don’t model for my own photographs as the self timer and my mild awkwardness in front of the camera doesn’t offer me a lot of freedom. However, this morning I had blow dried my hair out and figured it would be a loss not to capture it for the world (or a very…

To the Ladies of the Lens

Before I absolutely bash male photographers (kidding), I’d like to recognize that my first photography role models were both men: Tyler Shields and Richard Avedon. But today is for the ladies of the lens. Actually, every day is for the ladies of the lens. I’m truly tired of feeling like shit around male photographers. At…

“You’d be pretty if you ____”

There’s nothing like those snide remarks, the “you’d be pretty if you ___” or the “maybe you should ___” comments. Well, here’s what you say to those “fuck you”. Developing a “fuck you” attitude has truly been a life changer. I mean what possible comeback is there to “fuck you”. As a photographer, specifically a…

The Anatomy of Fish

Sometimes, when the sun hits a fish just right, they’re not just brown or orange, but pink and green and blue […] in that little patch of sunlight where there is no “just”, but more of what could be  The anatomy of fish is the name of the essay I submitted for college. I wasn’t…

Hangnail

Hangnail just popped into my head during stats class. For a week I’ve had a note in my computer that read “orange peel + fake nails”, and this is the outcome. Of course I can’t take a picture these days without having some feminist statement intertwined in it (god forbid!!!). I’ve been inspired by vintage…
