Jet-lagged from a month in Europe, catching a cold, and sleep-deprived, I decided to call up Tiffany, aka Lady Sensuality, for a quick shoot just to get myself used to working again.
Yes, that’s how I operate sometimes. See her in my new Kitties & Titties Calendar!

Cherish moved away a few years ago, but I always look forward to the holidays because I know we can usually squeeze in a shoot before she leaves. This morning we got up early and drove out to a quiet wooded area for some really pretty shots in the bright Autumn sun.
Check her out in the new Kitties & Titties video we shot, and make sure to order the K&T 2014 Calendar!
This shot looked like something from a suspense movie: “She didn’t know where the sound was coming from, but she knew it was close.”
Sometimes it worries me what she might see in there.

I was always a creative kid, making odd things and drawing on any scrap of paper I could find. One of the most common comments my loving and supportive older brother would give me was “You’re going to end up drawing caricatures out of a mini-bus on the beach someday.” Yesterday, while I was shooting some family Christmas portraits for a client, I spied this woman making drawings and necklaces in her mini-bus at our Refugio Beach location. A sudden chill crept down my spine and a smirk crawled across my face.
This one’s for you, Michael.

Jesslyn has a reputation for being a bit loud, opinionated, even abrasive at times, and that is putting it mildly. Still, when I think of her I only see a quiet, introspective person. We may not get to see each other often, but when we have time to visit we only talk about the most serious of topics and I get to see the real, thoughtful, serious person that can sometimes be hidden under all the intensity. I thought this recent image captured that well, and I was in that kind of mood myself today, so here it is.
I only have a few copies left of my limited edition 5”x7” photo book, QUIET, featuring images of Miss Kacie Marie, Hattie Watson, Sierra McKenzie, Brooke Eva, Tiffany Helms aka Lady Sensuality, Roarie Yum, Rivi Madison, and more. This book may never be in print again.

Thanks so much for making 2013 a great year!
Sometimes simple, soft, and pretty is good enough for a moment.
When I got back from my insane month-long trip through Europe in September I was surprisingly in a bit of a dark place. My already Big Picture perspective was now greater, which I essentially viewed as my existence being even more inconsequential to the world as a whole than I had already been believing. Also, in the terms of creativity, I had seen some of my favorite Old Master artworks that inspired me my entire life, which, in my negative mind state weeks later, reminded me that any work I make would never live up to that level of emotional power or notoriety. I was in a deep and heavy funk.
But like every sport cliché you can think of, I knew I had to play through the pain. I arranged dozens of shoots in the first weeks back despite already having a huge backlog of images to process from before I left and no time to even look at the images I began shooting. I just knew I had to keep making work, force the negativity and poisoned thoughts out.
I’d like to say I am over that now, but who can really say. I’m better than I was, much better actually. Now I’m just dealing with all the other real world negative ramifications left over from the last week of the trip that shockingly is costing me more than I ever could have dreamed.
Still, life is good. Again, keeping a proper perspective on things can make any dark spot a little brighter. Sometimes you’ve just got to do your best with any given situation, deal only with what is right in front of you, force yourself to keep moving, and suck it up. Despite all my luck this year, 2013 was a tough one for myself and many others I care about. Let’s finish out this year strong and be hopeful for a better 2014.
Man, I picked a bad time to stop drinking.

Here’s a special behind-the-scenes shot of one of our model appreciating the cuteness of her modeling partner.
Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my buddy Jesslyn. She and I have both been going through some frustrating situations lately and it was great to just vent, hang out, laugh, and of course take a few photos. More coming soon.
