It was a busy weekend... finishing up sessions and post production fun! Instagram is filled with amazing images, captured by some insanely talented creative artists. What you don’t see is “behind the scenes”. What sets certain photographers apart from others and why some photography cost so much more than others. Investing in photography can be a sticker shock at first if your a customer. If your a creative artist and starting out, you probably sometimes feel like you shouldn’t be charging as much because it’s just a photo. NOPE.... it’s not just a photo, it’s from a detailed perspective, a viewpoint that is only from you and for the receiver, having a photographer that knows how to bring out the best you and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera is a huge win. You’re paying for an experience, one that is followed up with definition and care when it comes to picking out the best images captured, retouching them to perfection and putting their stamp of style on them. Your paying for someone’s time, and talent. Your charging for your time and talent, remember it’s worth it!

𝕊𝕜𝕚𝕟• Lathered my face in some Lavender+Tea Tree oil 2 days ago, and yesterday I gave my skin a break and wore zero makeup and a bit of anti-aging flower serum. Lately my skin has been getting redness and uneven (bumpy). Especially right after washing makeup off. I have what I believe to be early signs of rosacea. Sssad! But def not devastating or anything 🌼 I’m gonna be the big 3-0 early next year and that’s when rosacea typically shows up. I read lavender and coconut oil helps and what do you know?! I have plenty of that right at home. I already have a lavender/tea tree oil blend that is specifically for clearing blemishes (overnight) so I thought “Same shit, a lil tea tree never hurt.” And the blend worked wonders! For me. ⚡️ 𝕄𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕦𝕡-𝕠𝕗-𝕥𝕙𝕖-𝕕𝕒𝕪-𝕡𝕠𝕤𝕥 𝕥𝕙𝕠!⚡️ #ecoface#andalounaturals#halfcutcrease#cutcreaselook#makeuppost#motd#glowup#colourpopcosmetics#anastasiabeverlyhills#mehron#nyxcosmetics#loreal#tuesday#upcloseandpersonal#poressoyouknowitsreal 🍯
I get comments on my bracelet more often than not. I don’t take it off for photoshoots, showering, the beach, tanning, if it doesn’t match my outfit, I don’t take it off for anything. I have had it for over 7 years it is just as important to me as the tattooed memories I’ve put on my body forever. This was the last gift I gave my Grandma, she is buried with a matching one. I was a caretaker for her for years and my mother and I both held her while she took her last breath. She was my best friend thru the years and an opinion I still take into consideration long after she has gone. She was one of the best people I have ever met. She shaped me into the human I am today, held me when I was sad, told me I was always good enough, yelled at me when I was a brat, and laughed with me. So it’s not just a bracelet to me when I look at it, because my mind goes straight to her always. It’s a reminder..... and for that I am thankful ✨ #mindfulness#upcloseandpersonal#socialmediabreak#goingsilent#rememberyourroots#beagoodhuman#grandmasgirl
Though my days are done ⚰️ · The waters will always run 🌊 · Find that lost river......find me 🌿 · · · · Everyone has been posting their reindeer lewks lately 🦌 So I thought I'd share one of my favorite portraits of my Deer Woman costume, perfectly captured by @hooliagulia 📸 This is a very personal and cathartic routine I created a few years ago, after it's debut was delayed due to a close friend of mine passing away unexpectedly 💔 The routine pays homage to my Native American roots, the legend of the Deer Woman reflecting my own personal struggles with my identity (being adopted with limited knowledge of your personal history can be bit of a mind fuck), and lamentation over having my connection with untouched nature severed. I really love to use burlesque as a storytelling device! · · Handmade antler and flower crown made by me aka my side hustle @persephones_temptations ✨ · · · #identity#identitycrisis#deer#deerwoman#doe#sleighallday#antlers#headdress#portrait#blackandwhite#flowercrown#throwback#deereyes#doeeyes#burlesque#performanceart#upcloseandpersonal#showgirl

I loved getting my most recent xrays on disk to give to my chiropractor. Just wish I had my own copy. This is one shot of my first xray in 20 years. I don't remember it looking this bad (bad = my opinion). Now I'm trying to decide if the pain I'm in warrants a trip to a orthopedic doc to do a full review again. At least my brokenness looks stylish 😂 #spondylolisthesis#xray#upcloseandpersonal#failingimperfectly
