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.

You’ll have to forgive me for not posting lately; I have been over my head with shoots, working full time, and music, so I have NOT been good about keeping this blog up to date. I’m just going to post A LOT of shoots today (in no particular order). Here’s the one I did with Maya at the end of June.

Forgot to post this set from one of my trips to Maine. Ooops! I shot it on two different films, but surprisingly the Kodak Gold ones were my fav, so I’m just going to post those. I liked how the water looked more green, and the whites were pure.

My all time fave girl gang and goddesses extraordinaire killed it with me this past weekend. I’m so excited to finally be shooting the kind of imagery I’ve always wanted to create. Also, I feel like my film work is getting closer and closer to where I want to be aesthetically speaking, and I am so happy. I’ve come a long way. I still have a couple things to master (medium format is next) but I’m riding out this thrill with myself. :D

Without further ado, here is the shoot.

Session w/ MK Tran (NSFW)

I’ve admired this photographer for YEARS so when he asked me to model for him, I about died. Here’s what we did. (I asked permission to use these photographs here, you should definitely check out his work.)

Leah Astore // 3-09-2019

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.
