I’ve been going through so many changes in my personal life lately and I’m feeling the need to be grounded for a while. In the past year I have realized a LOT about myself, and some… well, most of it, was unexpected. I still have a lot to learn (and unlearn) about myself and how I relate to others, but I am so thankful for all that I have already learned. I’m non binary, non monogamous, and ecosexual? UHM YES.
I love to travel, and a good chunk of my income is made while I’m traveling and posing for photographers. I’ve traveled SO MUCH this year, including my 69 day solo cross country road trip (click here for my massive blog post and tons of photos and videos from my trip), and I’m really feeling the need to slow down this winter.
I need to ground myself, to integrate and breathe into this new person that is presenting themself to me. I want to give myself the space to feel into this, to dig deeper within and uncover the light that’s within me, to become more of myself. I feel that in order to do this, I need to spend less time posing for photographers and more time with MYSELF. This is scary because this means I won’t have as much money coming in and I still need to be able to pay rent and buy food.
To facilitate (and celebrate!) my decision to slow down and spend more time with myself, I’m having a

I feel like I’m always talking about double exposures… well, probably because I am. I love them. They’re my favorite kind of image to create. They’re magickal. They’re serendipitous. They’re always a surprise and I love giving control to the universe.
You might be wondering… what the heck is a double exposure?!
A double exposure is when two (or more) images are taken on the same piece of film. When two (or more) images are superimposed to create a single image. A lot of people do this with photoshop or fancy apps now, but the kind of double exposures that *I* am always talking about are taken on FILM. Analogue. 35mm or medium format film. These are TRULY magickal to me.
I took my first double exposure on accident, in a Holga camera (does anyone remember those?!). I took a photo, forgot to wind the film, and took another photo. The two images overlapped each other to create one single image! I was amazed and fell in love immediately.
You mean I can take a photo of a landscape, and then take a photo of a person in a studio or an empty room or next to a tree, and the end result makes the person look like they’re IN the landscape?! THEY BECOME A PART OF THE LANDSCAPE?! Hell YES!!!
If you know me or if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know that I am ecosexual and that the earth, the environment, natural landscapes are where my heart is, where my SOUL is. The fact that I am able to take images that make it look like people BECOME A PART OF the environment makes me so incredibly happy. Being one with ferns, waterfalls as shimmering “clothes”, a crown of butterflies in flight.
It’s important for me to show people that we are not separate from the earth, we are a part of it. We are all connected and this planet, our home, everything we’ve ever known, is the MOST IMPORTANT thing and needs to be loved, protected, cherished. I hope that my double exposures help people see that.
Okay, enough explanation. The images will tell you more than I ever could with words.
