Magdalena (do *NOT* call her “Maggie”, just trust me on this one) is a very dear friend of mine, and has been for a few years. She’s quite literally held my hand through some challenging personal stuff. So when I put out the call to attendees of Sex Geek Summer Camp to participate in my Abram’s Creek shoots, I was tickled beyond measure to get her response in particular.
Besides Magdalena’s striking blue eyes, her lovely ink, and, well, the obvious, there was something about this particular shot that I loved but couldn’t quite put my finger on for awhile. But what eventually hit me is it’s the colors. While almost all my other creek shots are loaded with greens and blues, the angle on this one left only those warm, earthy tones that compliment her skin and her personality so perfectly.
I’m really extra proud of this shot, and of the fact that when I asked her if I could post it here, her response was “hell yes”. I love that sort of enthusiastic consent, and having that from such a wonderful person and friend makes me inordinately happy.
