Reflection on a weekend of getting to know myself. Of getting to know my beloved friends (old and new). Of learning how to grow though experiences. Of making music. Of yoga. Of dogs and gurus. Of rainy hikes. Of striving to listen more, love more, learn more, and grow more. Mas amor. Thank you @cherryontopmarfa @artemis_ny @pshootz @agostinamigoni @hannah_piana @dasblumeleinproject @adrienelouise and everyone I met this week 💫🌺🌵🍒⛰
If you know me at all, you know that I love snow cones immensely. Also, I’ve craved them so much during this pregnancy and all the local spots have failed to deliver on that perfect snow cone experience. Of course, the Lord has shown me favor by bringing @frostbitesgulfshores to the front door of our resort for this vacation and it’s all of my snow cone dreams.
Best part of it all are the wonderful family that run it together and are the sweetest folks. If you’re in Gulf Shores, do yourself a service and come visit them!
I hid in the back seat of the car, on my knees, dressed in black with blankets covering my profile and camera as we drove into the Red Light District. I tried to be as discrete as possible as the two front male passengers posed as “johns” (men who use prostitutes).
I held my breath most of the night praying I was getting the right content as @_thomas_williams and Dave spoke out where to point my lens to capture the horrific reality these girls face. Young and old, these women are forced on the streets. Exasperated by my curiosity to understand the challenges of finding a livelihood in Mozambique, Maria said for the third time in her interview, “There are no other options!” The life of being on the streets are harsh and dangerous. The women are violated, physically and emotionally abused and it can even lead to death. So thankful to partner with @freethegirlsbras as they give another way of life to these women.
Featured artist of the month is @paulabroome. In our first ever print issue, WE ARE WOMEN, we spoke to Paula Broome, a freelance and free-spirited photographer, heralding from Manchester but residing in London. She takes around five foreign trips a year, camera around her neck, and loves to immerse herself in other cultures, capturing memories and telling stories. Editor Annabelle Carvell got in touch to find out more about her photography, her motivations, and how her boudoir shoots with her fiancé came about. Read the interview with Paula on our blog.#travelphotos#litmag#india#photography#synmag#synaesthesiamag#wearewomen#bloodygoodperiod#freelance#womensphotography#memories#tellstories
Good morning friends. Sundays are for coffee, edits, and deep thinking.
It’s been over a year since I shot this set for a publication. At the time - I was nervous, excited and still so new to what it meant to be an independent contractor in the field of photography. I’m happy to say that I’ve felt myself grow as an artist, professional and confident person since then. Being able to see that shift is so important. With recent events and changes happening in my life, I’m grateful in having the chance to rewind and appreciate this growth and know it’s only the beginning.
I’m sending out a huge thank you to everyone that’s stuck with me, appreciated my work, and valued my vision along the way - there’s so much more to come! 🖤
There’s a wild world of wonder out there for you baby girl. And the one who knit it all together loves you with an unfathomable love. Deeper and wider than that water reaches and a hundred million times more than the sand on all the beaches across this earth.
