Rhyan Townsend - MUAH Wizard

I have this friend, her name is Rhyan.
Her work is no stranger to this blog of mine, because she is the artist behind every mythological goddess in my Creatures Series.

She is currently in the throes of rebranding and redesigning her website, so we decided to get some babes together and play dress up. Rhyan is truly a wizard when it comes to hair and makeup. She creates the boldest, most stunning looks -- and it seems so effortless. She is creative through and through, and I am honored to count her among my friends.

Do yourself a favor and follow her on Instagram and Facebook so you can be the first to know when her new website launches, featuring even more photos from this gorgeous shoot!!!

Nicole {Cambria, CA}

I often get asked "What is your FAVORITE thing to photograph?" It is a question that often stumps me. Weddings are my bread & butter, photographing couples is like breathing to me, boudoir photography is empowering.... but after this session with Nicole, I now know how to answer that illusive question.

Artists.
I live to surround myself with fellow creatives. So you can imagine the energy and space that is created when another artists asks me to capture a bit of their creative process and soul on film -- it is powerfully inspirational.

This is Nicole. She is a musical being, a kindred spirit, and kindhearted human. I am blessed to know her, and honored to be a part of her new creative endeavor called "Koki".
I can't wait to see what she does next.

Creatures : Phoenix

Phoenix : a mythical bird that never dies, but is reborn time and time again from it's own ashes. the phoenix flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. it represents a capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our world and the events unfolding within it.

Velvet Sugar

Meet Taryn & Rhiannon -- the sisters behind the Velvet Sugar fashion blog.

After months of trying to coordinate schedules for this shoot, the stars aligned and we got to chase the sun over the hills and through the forests of Montana De Oro. These girls are not only stunning to look at, but a joy to be around -- their dreamer hearts and creative individuality is nothing short of inspiring.

Irina is one of those human beings inspires you to live your life with everything you've got.

She believes in wellness,
loves her family more than anything on this earth,
& gives off a joyful light that defeats any dark force that threatens her bliss.
