Pillow Talk

Posted: March 12, 2018

Three years later, this is still one of my favorites from all the shoots that I’ve done. The set up was a white comforter spread across a hardwood floor, a set of windows, and a light box. Can’t believe it’s so simple, right? I remember it was a rainy day in Oakland too, but we were still able to get this soft, perfect lighting. This was shot by Collin Young aka @imagewonder. His style is a bit different now, but so is mine. Gone are the days when I would throw on a bodysuit or bralette with some shorts and awkwardly pose in front of a camera, hoping that at least 2 out of 500 shots would come out decent. It was definitely fun while it lasted, but at this stage of my life it’s not the most appropriate thing to do, nor is it the look that I’m going for. I still like to look back at old photoshoot albums and reminisce on the days when I was ten pounds lighter and didn’t really have any eyeshadow skills…

I still want to do photoshoots in my spare time, but for entirely different reasons and a whole different type of wardrobe. I’m excited to see what the future brings both in reality and on social media. Shoutout to Albert at @illbethings for helping me make the most of what I have already created and inspiring me to do even more. Here’s to a start of something new!
