polaroid self portraits - who we are versus who we want to be

An intimate look at my life through 1970’s flavor Polaroids.

This was sort of an interesting project on how I actually want to view myself (the romanticized photos in costumes and backdrops) versus how I actually am, (the photos in my apartment or daily life). Humans are so incredibly multi faceted, I’m discovering that I can be all of these things at once, and that is an overwhelming state of realization in a world that prefers a manicured, “aesthetic” representation of people.

Had an amazing art filled weekend with Leah Astore and Zack Stone. Leah has quickly become not only a wonderful friend, but one of my favorite models to photograph and pose with. <3

These were some of my favorite photos of Leah that I took on film (and digital) this past Saturday - if you want full sets, go visit her Patreon.

I AM SO BEHIND. GOD. HOW.

Ever since I was medically discharged from the Army (your girl got a lot of stress fractured bones during basic training, so that kind of sucks, but it is what it is), but anyway, I have so much to catch up on. I will eventually do that, but for now, here is my latest, latest, shoot with my boyfriend Adam Soucy. He’s a professional drummer out of the Southern NH / Boston, MA area, so go give him love too.

We were out frolicking around being all romantic and stuff, and I had him pull over really quick so I could take some shots of him with the overcast lighting we were getting that day. Really, really, love how these turned out. We got the vibey / musician magazine look going on here, so I was happy.
