So much art was made in Philly! I’ve shared a lot of it with you already but there is SO MUCH MORE that I still have to share! I’m so excited to show you everything that was created while I was there.
This weekend I wanted to post these sets of Luna Dahlia & Vex Voir I took during the group shoot in Fairmount Park I told you about last month! We shot these pretty quickly, I took a few photos of each model in turn while Jeff Waters photographed someone else. This location was truly incredible. I love that nature was taking back the space, there were small trees and lots of plants growing everywhere both inside and out. Since we were there late afternoon and the house had very tall walls and no ceiling, the light was nice and soft but bright, just how I like it!
What are you doing this weekend? I have off of work today and I’m being super productive! Today is REALLY exciting because I just got my brand new phone in the mail! It’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 8!!!!! I had the Note 4 and I really loved it but a few days ago it stopped charging anywhere above 17% and as soon as I unplugged it, it went straight down to 2% battery. I do so much from my phone, it is an essential for me to be able to work so I desperately needed a new one quickly. I knew I would have off today so yesterday I called Verizon to make sure they had the Note 8 in stock at my local Verizon store so I could hopefully go there today to get one. The Verizon sales rep Allison was super amazing and after a 25 minute phone call, I had a new Note 8 in black (the color I wanted) being overnight shipped to me (at no extra cost), and I wouldn’t even have to go into the store! HELL YES! I’m so thankful for wonderful customer service!
This little Bunny is really happy and full of gratitude today! <3
I just recorded a 5+ minute video blog for you! Other videos added this week are straight leg scorpion & practice switching open and closed wrap from aerial silks class (2 different videos), 3 videos of cool art in NoDa (an artsy part of Charlotte), and 4 videos from my friends’ gallery show!

This set was taken in our first airbnb when AD and I were in Chicago. I say our first because we stayed at this one for the first night we were there and then the rest of the time we stayed at a different one. We wanted to stay in this one for our first night because it was AD’s birthday! This airbnb was so adorable and small but had plenty of space and great natural light to shoot with. They had a huge mirror off to the side of the bed which was of course great for photos, so Edgar suggested for me take a few self portraits with his Leica while he photographed me taking them. I had never used a Leica before but got the hang of it pretty quickly. You can see the photos I took and the photos he took in this set! We also utilized the window above the head of the bed that had a very wide windowsill for a few shots. I got in the windowsill and posed a bit and then he even got a photo of me jumping down! Edgar likes to use vintage cameras as props for shoots so it was of course fun for me to play with all the cameras. =D
What are you doing this weekend? I’m going to a gem and mineral show in Winston Salem NC today! I’m very excited to see all the beautiful crystals and probably spend more money than I should on getting some for myself and for a little project I’ve been working on. I can’t wait!
The videos I’ve uploaded this week are: the nude yoga video for September (over 9.5 minutes long!), 24 fun nude body movement boomerangs, and a 3.5 minute video of me placing crystals on myself for a chakra cleansing meditation.

I met up with Darius Ollison in South Carolina for this shoot. I drove all the way down from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia the day before, on the last couple days of my Philadelphia trip at the end of June. Yeah, I really drove all over the place….. Charlotte NC to Philadelphia PA to Suffern NY to Shenandoah National Park VA to Sunset SC. SO MUCH DRIVING! It was a thousand percent worth it. I had so many amazing fun creative shoots on that trip, and I had a ton of fun doing it! I have a story about why I went to NY state… but that’s for another day. =]
Back to this shoot! I had an entire day to myself for my drive from Shenandoah to SC, so I took my time exploring Shenandoah and then meandered my way down to SC. I just had to make sure to give myself enough time to figure out where I was sleeping before nightfall. I drove straight to the trailhead to make sure I knew where it was since I was meeting Darius there early the next morning. It’s in the middle of nowhere down a rural country road, I felt like I was driving into someone’s farm because there were a few houses nearby on the same road. There was absolutely no cell service so I drove back out into the nearby small town to call AD and let him know I made it and what my plans were for that night. The trailhead was small and secluded enough that I felt safe hunkering down there for the night, which is what I did! I actually enjoy sleeping in my car. I have a piece of memory foam that I’ve cut to fit the entire back of my car and I hang black towels up in the windows so nobody can see in. It’s a minimal setup but I love the freedom of living out of a car – I just need to find a decent place to park. =]
I was woken up in the middle of the night by another car driving in and parking next to me. Up until that point I was totally alone at the trailhead, so I was immediately worried about who this person was and why they were there. Obviously they weren’t going hiking since it was about 1 am. I grabbed my knife and peered around the towel to watch what was going on. It was a guy in a minivan. He checked his phone, wrote in a notebook, and smoked a cigarette. He was there for maybe 5 minutes and then a woman walked up from down the road. She got in the car, they talked for a moment, then drove away. I was so relieved! I was definitely scared for a while.
The next morning I got up extra early so I could drive into town to call AD and let him know I was alright, then drove back to the trailhead to meet up with Darius. He was super nice and funny and I really enjoyed modeling for him. We shot for a couple of hours before the sun got too high. Right after I got dressed a mom and her 2 daughters were coming down the trail! Somehow I have great timing because this has happened at least 3 times at different shoots, I’ll get dressed and right after that people show up!
It was so hard to pick out only a few photos to share with you here, there are SO MANY amazing ones! Make sure to check out this huge set in the galleries! <3
There are 4 BTS videos (and 6 photos) from this shoot for that show you just how big and beautiful these waterfalls are. I’ve added 5 videos from Shenandoah National Park as well! There’s also 2 new aerial silks videos! One in which I do a stag leg drop back, purposefully falling backwards through the air, which is actually really fun! The other video is a 4.5 minute long scorpion sequence with a couple of backbends from ankle hang at the end. Dang that is a major workout!

I’m pretty much in love with this self portrait set I took in Chicago. I wasn’t always in love with it though. The first time I hastily looked through the photos on my phone I was disappointed by them so I stored them and forgot about them. The shadows just looked way too dark to salvage in the small thumbnails. I stumbled across this set again when I was picking out what I wanted to share with you and now I can’t believe I wasn’t happy with it before! I’m so thankful that I held onto this previously discarded set because it’s a new favorite.
The airbnb we stayed in the majority of the time Antisocialdisposition and I were in Chicago was beautiful. I chose it because it had several windows and so many plants indoors, and I certainly made the right choice! It was even more wonderful in person than the photos I had seen online. I love the nude statue, and the clear chair is definitely an interesting piece of furniture. Of course I had to incorporate those elements into this set!
Enjoy these reclaimed images that have reminded me to always give second chances, and to look deeper into the dark to see the light. <3
New to the video tier is a timelapse video of me doing yoga at the airport with my mom from earlier this year. Check out the sweet crop top I’m wearing, it’s the “Your dick didn’t change me” one from a limited run that Jacs Fishburne had made. =D We definitely had people watching us but I was in the zone so I didn’t notice. My dad told us after we finished!

When I was in Philly last month I was able to catch up with my friend DWL Photo who I hadn’t seen since May 2016 when we met at #dancingbearsvacay! If you’ve been around for a while you might remember that intense & awesome artist’s retreat. Look back through the archives to May 2016 to see what happened. =] DWL and I shot several sets JUST FOR YOU, and I’m excited to share the first of them with you! We went to another part of Fairmount Park (the place is huge) that I hadn’t been to yet and explored and made a bunch of awesome images. At first I thought we wouldn’t be able to find a place secluded enough but we found several cool spots and didn’t have any issues with people spotting us.
I’ve put a bunch of random videos in the galleries for you this week! 2 videos of me singing in the car with AD, and 4 outdoor exploration videos!
I’m currently in Tampa! I drove 10 hours on Wednesday and I’m so relieved that I’m done with the marathon driving. I started shooting some self portraits and videos for you first thing on Thursday morning and plan to create even more for you during any free time I have here. Technically it’s Thursday morning right now as I’m typing this but since I’ll be driving home ALL DAY on Saturday, I’m prepping this week’s post early! I really like consistently posting every Saturday morning so I plan in advance if I need to and queue it for you if I’ll be busy when it’s supposed to post. =]
I love y’all so much, thank you for being here with me. Thank you for your support and encouragement. I appreciate each and every one of you! <3
