So close to being done with studio photography!

This is Chelsea, and my second model for this project.

I used a soft box left side, and a parabolic on the right side along with 2 white reflectors on each side bouncing everything back in. Shot on a black backdrop.

The final images of these will be printed, with added media (paint) to give them more dimension.



Cute little plants also from this past weekend. I’ve made a conscious decision to post all of what I’m shooting on this blog, not just required posts and things that may or may not be important, but everything. Gotta get back in the swing of making things just for myself one way or another. 

Punxsutawney, PA. 


A few more of princesschobes shot for my final project in studio!

I have so many good shots it’s going to be hard to narrow it down to a final set few to display during critique.



In today’s media, the ideal female body is still tall, thin, white, and blonde. The continued pushing of this body type leaves a large majority of women who don’t fit this stereotype with mental and physical scars that can last a lifetime.

My thesis project is meant to show through approximately 12 images that the ideal female body stereotype is long gone. The world is full of amazing women of all races and all body types.

Hopefully with this project I will be able to reinforce the idea among women of all ages that you don’t need to fit a certain stereotype to be happy. There’s much more I want to write about this project as it’s very personal to me, but that will come with time.

These 2 images are of the wonderful and fantastic Courtney Jacobs. This was the test shoot for my entire body of work that I am going to produce and I couldn’t be happier with them.


Went to Pittsburgh’s March Against Monsanto. 

It was very refreshing to see other care about something that is very important but entirely ignored, and also important to me.

Starting a new and terrifyingly large project. It doesn’t quite have a name yet but essentially the end product will be a book, of a large collection of color film photographs I have taken since I started getting into photography. This is a span of now 7 or 8 years. Here’s a little excerpt of what I have found so far. There’s so much to go through and edit but I’m so excited to see where this project ends up.


“Traces” 2015

Traces explores the usually invisible marks left by the lips. By wearing lipstick, it is more evident what the relationship with the body and the world around it really is. These are just 2 digital images, but the entire body of work is going to be shot on color film. Traces is ongoing, as the human body is always affecting the environment around it.


More forgotten film from spring break in Miami last year.

A nice little bright spot today since it’s so dreary outside. Wish I was here right now.

Expired film shot on a NIkon N55.


Layers, 2014

My final project for studio photography!

After printing these I then painted on top of them. For this final I really wanted to combine 2 arts that I love, to add layers both visually and physically.

Thanks again to princesschobes for modeling for me!
