I gotta tell you working with companies that foster and support growth makes creation worth it. Here’s a shoot with @adderjewelry & @holyvoids - a couple of my favorite pdx brands.
I had a weird run in with a company that posted my work and wouldn’t credit it. She ignored my messages & didn’t compensate or ask to use the image. The image was created for creation’s sake, and the shoot, selection and editing process took hours and hours - she stole that to market and promote herself, not the artists involved. Lesson learned: not everyone wants to build one another up despite what they say. Humanity has a funny way sometimes. Thank you for listening to my rant.
It had been such a long time since I'd taken pictures and we had the bright idea of doing a photoshoot at 6am the next day after both working the midnight shift! It was cold, but we still had a blast ❄🌬 ________________________________________________
After waking up feeling severely under-slept due multiple wake-ups with 2 poorly kiddies. I was pleasantly surprised to discover we’d been featured TWICE in @nlvogue (Netherlands). *Happy dance* 💃🏽💃🏽Unfortunately I don’t speak Dutch but happy and grateful to see the wings of this indie-biz spread just that little bit further. Thank you @nlvogue 🙏🏾✨🌿#pureplantmagic#vogue
