    My mirror experiments took longer and were more difficult than I expected. Each mirror I added brought it’s own complications. Overall I had fun and though I’m not as satisfied with the images as I want to be I still really like some of them. I want to explore a lot more but I definitely need to find a new space to shoot in, my bedroom isn’t empty enough to really get some good angles and I need better light, too.

    (This photoset has 99 images, I’m sharing 10 of my favorites here, the rest of the set can be found in the member galleries!)

    I met Kaiman Kazazian once almost exactly 3 years ago when I was fortunate enough to be able to work with her since she was only in town for a short amount of time. The two of us along with several other photographers and models were all hanging out and shooting in an apartment with bare walls and minimal furniture.  It was a really quick shoot and we only got one roll but there are so many wonderful photos from it. She is kindhearted and inspiring and I hope our paths cross again.

    (This is a 10 image set, here’s 3 of my faves! The rest can be found in the member galleries.)

    There are lots of changes coming up for me, the soonest being getting rid of a huge bookshelf and cutting my hair. My mom is on her way here now to help me load up the giant bookshelf and take it to my sister and tomorrow I’m getting a lot of my hair chopped off. It’ll be the shortest it’s ever been and I’m both excited and scared. I just finished up my last self portrait shoot before getting my hair cut so of course I had to incorporate the now-empty bookshelf. Tomorrow I’ll be lighter, one less piece of furniture and a lot less hair. I’m taking a couple of small steps toward the major changes that are going to take place this year: going back to college, possibly (most likely) quitting my desk job, and moving. I’m changing and learning and growing. I’m looking forward to everything that’s going to happen this year.

    Little did I know I didn’t actually end up going back to school and DID end up at another job I didn’t like that much… but not all plans work out like we think they will!

    Happy Friday! Things are usually too hectic for me to be able to post more than once a week but yay a Friday with less going on! I thought I’d share some fun facts with you:

    • Modeling for figure drawing groups/classes is super fun. Especially if I’m able to model with antisocialdisposition like in this drawing!
    • I’m a vegetarian, but a new vegetarian. I only started in September. It really wasn’t much of a change for me though since I never ate much meat anyway.
    • I have a cool scar next to my left eye from when I was 2 and jumping on the bed instead of taking a nap like I was supposed to and fell off landing on the bed frame with my face. I needed a bunch of stitches and I’m super lucky I didn’t fall any further down because otherwise I’d be a cyclops right now.-I like scars and their stories. What’s your coolest scar?
    • I’ve only moved 3 times in my entire life, once when I was 2 or 3 so it doesn’t count, and twice within the past 4 years.
    • Moving sucks.
    • This Indian food I’m eating right now is delicious.
    • I plan on getting a Harry Potter tattoo sleeve when I have the money for it.
    • Thanks to aerial silks I can do 6 pull ups in a row.
    • The first time I’ve ever been able to do a pull up was within the past 6 months. Lady muscles! Yeah!
    • I’m going back to college in the fall and should have more time for photos and traveling and exploring!
    • I already have 2 associate degrees.
    • I have a younger sister named Kitty. People always thought we were twins when we were little. We’re pretty sure we’re Irish Twins. I’m only a year and a half older than her.
    • I believe in energy and it’s healing powers.
    • I do not believe in god. I have never believed in god for as long as I can remember.
    • I carry 5 stones with me every day. They’re always different ones, whichever I feel are the ones I should have for that day.
    • I used to squat down and watch ants scurrying across the ground when I was a kid.
    • I still do sometimes.

    Several of those ^^ facts above are no longer accurate, but it’s fun to see where I was in life over 3 years ago…

    I’ve been thinking today about how much I love exploring and remembering all the wonderful places I’ve been. I’ve clambered up a mountain and climbed down waterfalls to find the perfect little pool in which to photograph a new friend. I’ve been soot-covered in a burned down abandoned house in which I found a death certificate from 20 years ago. I’ve spent 10 minutes just walking around a mansion to see every room, most of which were named after a spice or herb. It was large enough to need 2 staircases and had the most beautiful tree outside the front door, leaves bright yellow in October. I’ve continuously returned to the big abandoned house owned by a peacock and frequented by geese. I’ve been sunburned from not realizing how long I had been taking self portraits in a quarry within walking distance of my apartment. I’ve ran back home after a whirlwind shoot in the quarry right before a thunderstorm started. I’ve been to an abandoned 3 story college with an enormous & prominent staircase on the first floor, all of the giant windows completely broken and gone. I climbed the crooked beams at the back of the college which were mangled as a result of a fire.

    I’m so thankful for these and many other amazing unmentioned places I’ve visited. Don’t even get me started on how lucky I am to have met so many fantastic people. =] <3

  • *NSFW* Creator Interview: Expressions Untold

    If you could describe the entirety of your work in three sentences, what would they be? 

    My work at it’s core is about acceptance. For oneself in their skin. And for their sexuality and the sexual energy that drives them.

    What’s the story of your journey to becoming an artist?

    Oh boy, that’s a long one haha. My journey started back while I was a teen spending hours looking at porn and not coming across any content that I liked. Seeing the blatant misogynistic, racist, and sexist storylines playing out over and over again. Then growing older and having sexual experiences of my own and learning about the insecurities people had about their bodies while also dealing with my own shame around my sexuality. So when I got my first camera around age 24 I knew that I wanted to take photos of real human bodies in all their diversity and uniqueness. I knew that I wanted to capture couples making love and taking photos of everyday people like you and I having moments of pleasure whether that be alone or with a partner. I felt strongly that is what the world needed to see.
    Was there anyone who influenced your work or supported you from the very beginning?

    Jade Beal was a huge inspiration of mine. I love the way she captures people of all ages and skin in such a positive and respectful light. I love that her worked touched on intimacy regardless of age but also uplifted motherhood and bodies of all types.

    What’s your favorite thing to create, or be a part of creating?

    I love working with people and afterwards showing them their images. Receiving that phone call or text that’s full of emotion as they look through their photos in awe of how they look and have been captured. So, I guess to answer your question. Creating pieces of art that emotionally uplift and empower people is my favorite thing to create.
    Do you have a favorite piece or series?

    It would be so hard to pick just one piece. All my photos have different emotions and memories behind them. From the conversations had while taking the photo to the emotions evoked through it. It would be so hard to pick just one.

    How do you find inspiration when you’re in a creative rut?

    Ya know, I’ll be honest here and say that. I’ve never really experienced that. As a writer so much of my work is based on how I’m feeling at the time so I always create from my own emotions. Also because I speak about sexuality often and I am a very sexual person. I always kinda feel that sensual sensual energy in me. Aside from that I’m always thinking and processing things. Often times my issue is actually that I don’t want to bombard people with my ideas or emotions..

    Is there anything you wish you could change about the art world or how people connect to your work?

    YES YES YES!!! I hate that so much of an artists perceived skill and importance derives on their follower count. As someone who’s had countless instagram pages shut down you really get to see how differently people treat you simply based on that number at the top of your page and while one day a person could have a large following with opportunities coming left and right. A day later they could be perceived as a “nobody” simply because their page now doesn’t have the same following. I wish people connected more with artists as humans and not sources to consume from. I wish that more people took time to appreciate, read, and understand the art being put out there and not just double tap and scroll.

    Do you see your work expanding, changing, or going in another direction in the future?

    I have many plans for my work. I wouldn’t say that I’d be changing directions though because I’ve always seen so much more for Expressions Untold than just being a photographer and writer. I plan on having my work in museums, speaking at panels and events, hosting retreats, coaching teens and adults on intimacy, self awareness, and deconstructing beliefs that limit human beings. I plan on having my own production studio. Creating films that embody the messages of my work. I have so much work to do to get to the place I want to be..

    If people could only receive one piece of information or knowledge about your work, what would you want that to be?

    That every piece of my work is creating with the intention to help someone heal..

    Where can you and your work be found online?

    This is my main website where one can go to gain access to my book, a gallery showing previews of my work, and links to all other podcasts and publications that my work has been featured in.
    This is where I post my uncensored work that I don’t post anywhere else. It has photos and videos of people and couples making love, in moments of self pleasure, and simply embracing their bodies in the most raw, real, and vulnerable ways..
