Hallie is dirty, but as you can see, she is delicous, too. You can see how she brought out the subversive in me.

I wanted to evoke spring and summer coming in the coolness of winter, so the model would be the sunny, golden?bright spot emerging from the dark, cool blue?winter.

Same Girl = Some Girls

The name of this shoot was inspired by the Rolling Stones song about their groupies, but it started because I couldn't find 4 different models to shoot for this site. I called for a blonde, a brunette, a red head and?an afro?girl and couldn't get one bite. So I had to make all those out of this one.

The Happiest Day of My Life

This shoot is about the idealism of youth, the anticipation of marriage, the ambivalence of what that does to identity and then the solidification of identity. Or it's just a beautiful girl in a lot of makeup. Done in the style of Catholic Saint cards.
