i'm glad you're here
As a kid, did you ever venture into the woods in hopes of running into a whimsical creature of some sort? Or hope to find a magical world of your own? These photographs combine the nostalgic memories and feelings we all had as a kid with the real world. I enjoy combining Photoshop and photography to create images that bring imaginative ideas to life.
Frog Pond, Lovelock NV- A spiritual place where you can watch the horizon spread shades of color across the sky as the sun sets from east to west. A magical sight where the vibes of the playa take over your soul in the best ways imaginable.
Trego Hot-springs, Lovelock NV- This springs runs long, allowing you to swim across each side depending on what temperature you like. The far left offers a hot side, just as refreshing as a Jacuzzi, while the left end tends to be more cool.
Sometimes while I'm in nature, I imagine the possibility of my next step leading me down a rabbit hole.... where I'll discover a world of my own.
Galaxy hand self portrait. I often feel most inspired when I'm in a bit of a time crunch. Aren't we always racing against the clock though? I had an hour of time before class so I decided to paint my hand. I wanted to keep the paint on for class, but I was scared if my palms got the slightest bit sweaty I'd soon make a huge mess. That being said, I washed it off- of course the face paint stayed on all day though (;
Burning man art-desert fairy
Downtown Reno, NV/ Sutcliffe, NV
Art is all around us. Reno acquires Burning Man art year after year to be placed around the city. When I found out this park was being built I couldn't help but to feel thankful to live in a community that appreciates these creations as much as I do. At night the sculptures come to life and light up different colors, giving them an entirely different personality. One night my friends and I felt inspired by their beauty, so we danced underneath the lights with our headphones in. This photo series is a mixture of nature and art. I originally wanted to photograph these wings in Black Rock City where Burning Man is held, but the roads were flooded and therefore closed. Although it was a bummer, it allowed me to get extra creative with the beautiful scenery I had to work with. I want to thank Little Black Diamond for helping me bring this vision to life with these stunning wings & this beautifully vibrant outfit. https://www.littleblackdiamond.com/
Forest Queen- Galena Forest, NV
Pyramid Lake BUTTERFLY'S
The land was desolate. The wind moved the clouds with the water at a steady pace. As the sun began to set, the butterfly's came out to dance and flow before the days end. Flowers in their hair and smiles on their faces, they breathed with the air that gave them life.
Every now and then you'll see them. The Gemini twins reuniting and becoming one with their air sign. They are vibrant and colorful; full of ideas. Usually holding a grin to their face, they are plotting their next theory. Watch them evaporate with the rain levitating into the sky.
She can only fly during the day, for her wings are charged by the sun. The birds find her fascinating, along with other creatures that fill the woods. You can find her resting her wings with forest animals almost always in her presence. They protect her and she protects them. Wings by Little Black Diamond.
Lost in thought
Her favorite children's book has always been Alice in Wonderland. She too liked to imagine realities far from her own. She's fallen down the rabbit hole once or twice in her dreams, but she swears her cat in real life is Cheshire.
