TBT with Bear

TBT with Bear   Thought I would do a little throw back Thursday post to keep the blog updated.  Back in 2013, I had the opportunity to work with Bear (finally…..).  We pretty much just played around in my tiny studio space at the time.  I wanted to do something that really made the color…

Best Kept Secret

Best Kept Secret June of 2013, I shot with at the time a complete stranger for my Stripped Down project.  I was blown away with her personality and posing ability.  We talked off and on for the past 3 years about another shoot.  But schedules and life got in the way and it took 3…
