I miss working with props. I need more shoots with bubbles and lights and confetti 🎉
don't plan on staying too long, so you should come here
aqui eu, ó, batendo na porta envergonhada com o rosto escondido.
mais de um ano depois, to de volta (ou tentando). é aquilo né, sempre tem uma coisinha que falta.
preciso aprender a incluir essa parte gigantesca de mim na minha rotina. é ridículo eu ter tempo pra tudo, menos pra fotografia (e cinema). isso é uma tentativa de deixar público esse meu descaso vergonhoso com o audiovisual, no geral, e ver se alguém aí me dá um soco no queixo na próxima vez que eu ficar tanto tempo longe. eu deixei, pode socar.
So many parts of our lives and journeys together are personal. It's these personal connections and moments that make us our own special little tribes and couples. It's why on portrait sessions sometimes I just love to have you all share something special about the other away from myself as I'd there to watch the reactions and fun unfold.
Emily and Tijs session was such a special one, especially catching it at the end of summer before all of the gorgeous autumn colours have begun to spring!

I am creating too much, but I have to fill that necessity of feeling empty.

Before & After just cause I feel like it 🥀 Post-processing is almost as enjoyable as shooting to me, I love hiding up in my room all cozy with a cup of tea or coffee and getting down to work ☕️
little more ray of sunshine ☀️- feels good to be posting again !
It’s difficult to be unsure of where you’ll end up, but it’s more frustrating not knowing where you want to go. Model: @__chuck.mo__
and I want to be there for you. I’m just tired of it being one sided. Model: @chocolatecodienee
So thankful for @alainadelrae
helping me last minute 🤩
time for a little change to my feed, alittle ray of sunshine perhaps ☀️
Just in time for Mother's Day! So grateful to have finished another photoshoot. I haven't seen or worked with @elisabeth_bradley_
in such a long, long time. And I'm so happy I was able to catch up and work with her! She's such a wonderful and beautiful lady.
So angry at myself for forgetting to post this one, but better late than never I guess. Worked with the beautiful and incredible person @crushida
, and so very honored I had such an opportunity.

Siren of the Spring
Had the absolute pleasure of working with @astrid.kallsen
this morning. This was the first time I've worked with a professional model and oh man, I was extremely nervous, but also extremely excited. She made it so easy, so calm and it went better than I could have imagined (I say that about all my shoots, but they always exceed my expectations!). Though it was a short shoot (I had a clear vision of what I wanted), I'm so glad I was able to spend some time with her. A gentle soul, that's for sure. I definitely hope to work with her again in the future.
I don't know how many years I've wanted to shoot in a field of wheat or barley, but I've never seen it around close to where I live, until recently. There is this field that is planted differently every year, and this year it started growing this way and I knew I had to hurry and get a shoot done before they rolled it. So, I contacted Alaina last minute to see if she could do a shoot this evening and lo and behold. I am so grateful and excited to be getting so much work done in such a short time.
I knew Lizzy’s mother from working with her. When I first saw Lizzy and her sister, I knew I had to photograph them both, but had a specific idea for Lizzy. I thought of this woman embodiment as a dragon, and made the choker and dress by cutting sequins until my fingers were blistered. I still love how this turned out, and can’t wait to work with @elisabeth_bradley_
I couldn't do the work I do without the people I work with. They're always so willing to go the extra mile for me and are so trusting of what I'm going to do. That notion overwhelms me sometimes, because I don't think myself worthy of something like that, but it makes me so grateful and the end product turns out better than I imagined.
This photo was done super early, and Alaina was out with me cutting wet grass and flowers with scissors at daybreak. I love this image a lot, and I couldn't have done it without her. She's an amazing person and I adore working with her.
Love you @alainadelrae
Bailey is such a wonderful person and model. I met her while working at Hobby Lobby and was shocked when she agreed to be my model. She's so soft spoken and super rad. Our shoots have always turned out so amazing, and she's so easy to work with. She's up for challenges and whatever I throw at her. You're the best pretty lady, @heynongwoman
The Absent, 2013
Hard to believe it's been five years since I took this photo with @alainadelrae
at the break of dawn to do this photoshoot. It's easily one of the photos I'm most proud of, but I definitely couldn't have done it without Alaina, who is so willing and down for whatever I throw at her. So excited for the future with my work and working with her.
