I had a great deal of fun shooting Shannon again, and her body art makes her one of my very favorite models.
Shannon and I met at my first Dr. Sketchy’s event back in January, and I got to see what life is like on the other side of the lens for a change. Shannon’s experience really came in handy when she was giving me advice on posing, but I have to say I much prefer being behind the camera when she is in front of it.
The second time we shot together, it poured the rain in buckets, and we wound up doing some really fun pin-ups inside. Shannon is an awesome pin-up model.
This, however, is the sort of thing I live to shoot.
Really. A lizard.

Take it slow. Relax.
Taking time to consider the moment
Another out-take from a project I’m working on that is just too pretty not to share.
At first I thought this might be the shot that I would use in a project on which I’m working, but after careful consideration, I’ve chosen another from this shoot. Nevertheless, this shot is too pretty to keep to myself.
Life is short. Take time.
