I have been inclined to experience life differently since I have moved to New York. I have always been the type of person who wanted to know everything. I am forever curious how everything works and what makes them tick. I have been blogging since 2011 and for years I spent so much time in front of the camera that I forgot the beauty of one. Ivan my photographer is an excellent teacher and he allowed me to be his student. I have learned so much in such a short time span and believe it or not by me knowing how different cameras work I'm able to get better shots when I'm on the other side. 

I believe its important to be well rounded in anything you are pursuing seriously.  For example: If you are trying to be a singer its important that you know or at least understand the producing aspect and the function of the studio equipment. Knowledge about your field will only help develop you. Now, I'm not saying you will be a jack of all trades but I am saying that by you having some knowledge or understanding of other surrounding components in your field you will produce better work. It's all a process and everything intertwines with each other. Don't be the person thats only caught up on one aspect you can't grow with that type of mindset.

My first picture deals with the idea of me taking on the persona of Olive Oyl but actually having style. The shirt is a mens shirt so I wanted to turn into my own. I like showing that being feminine doesn't come from the label but rather so the lady and how she wears it.

My inspiration for the last two photos was me thinking about how amazing it would be for a girl to shoot with bare essentials, hence the milk carton box I'm sitting on. I wanted to provoke the idea of this beautiful, sexy, yet tasteful lady is able to shoot on a average day and look fabulous doing it. She is that girl that isn't afraid to get her hands dirty but somehow she always manages to stay perfectly polished. I wanted it to be natural and spontaneous.
