NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE.
I have just collaborated with an absolutely amazing soul and talent: Beth Nicole Dodge. (IG: @beth.nicole.dodge ) She came to me with her idea of a photo series all about BODY IMAGE.
We wrapped this last Sunday. She is a strong, powerful, and truly beautiful Model & Concept Designer. Read ON.

Title: BODY IMAGE: NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE
This series puts on display the thoughts and words women often deal with in society today - when coming to terms with themselves and their body. How do we think of our body? How do we compare it to others? How to we end the negative cycle of comparative thoughts and belittlement? Which words empower us as we view ourselves? Reflections upon this subject is an important, sometimes, lifelong endeavor for women today. Transitioning from a negative body image to a positive one is difficult and often scary, but the journey is well worth one's acceptance. May positivity reign.
Old Hollywood Glamour is a series I have had immeasurable fun shooting, and yet this will take a long while to complete as the glamour outfits and vintage designs are more expensive than other wardrobe detailing. So, in due order, I am taking this series step by step.
You also may have noticed that I do not do series in film as I've evolved my photography...HOWEVER I always have my film camera with me and take shots from it during any series I do.
Here are a few outtakes from the three models I have so far collaborated with on the Old Hollywood series to date!
(Kyra Giddens, Michelle Dimplez Benton, and EL Goodwin modeling here.)
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
