Throw Back Thursday

December 29, 2016

I shot this beautiful photo while I was getting my Bachelor of Arts degree at Brooks Institute of Photography. I was 21, I think, which feels like forever ago. Erica was my bestie. We did everything together. We both started Brooks at the same time and became fast friends. I adored her and thought she was one of the sexiest girls I knew, so naturally I photographed her as much as I could. It’s so interesting to look back at my work from 15 years ago and still love it. I remember taking this photo, the day we were having and how excited I was to press my shutter. I lived in the guest house behind her house and we had this beautiful deck. She loved to lie around naked and this one fine morning I came outside and there she was, sunning her sexy little body with her Uggs sitting right next to her. The shadow of the leaf so perfectly placed, the light hitting her was perfection, so I snapped and got this gem.

 I love what I do so much and looking back at what I shot in school when I had no idea what I was going to do and to have the amazing boudoir business I have now, I feel so much joy flooding my heart!

Oh my sweet Erica, my first muse!
