Reflections of a dancer is to show the pain, beauty, and hardships of a dancer. The chosen few that dare to defy normal expectations and choose to be a human construct of art and damage.
Colors and contrast absolutely fascinate me. The colors shown are a representation of positive aura and beauty.
As artists, the mystery is our future, complacency is our greatest threat, and pain is our greatest teacher.
The Fantasy series was inspired by Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. After watching the short film again I wanted to create a familiar feeling of female beauty and dominance. Red is the daylight, the ying to the yang. Red dress is a beautiful confident goddess. She commands you, its her way or no way.

Blue is the moonlight, the yang to the ying. Blue dress is a beautiful confident goddess. She is compassion and love, she'll let you take charge but you need to kneel to her first.
The counter part to "B L A C K" we are never pure. No mater how hard we try we will always be trapped by the duality of it all.
Human was a series that showed that both sides of good and evil are always one. There is no such thing as purity, there will always be the king to yang.
The FANTASY series in general is one of my favorite projects. I hope to do a fantasy 3 if possible. This was my first time working with Candice and she would go on to be one of my dearest modeling friends.
Marked is raw female lust, I wanted to create the feeling of owning a look.
Last year I had thought I met the girl of my dreams. We fell in love last year and stopped talking when the summer ended. We started to talk again but it wasn't the same. This series of "summer vibes and memories" is sort of a reflection of the reality we create when we think we like someone. Summer is so different when you're young. It's a realm where reality doesn't exist. It's all about the vibe.
Beka is an artist first, her work is truly truly remarkable. I contacted her for this shoot and she nailed it. I feel she looks like a classic movie star, a timeless beautiful look.
Neon Dreams stems from trying to create a fantasy element that is very much grounded. I love the colors, they fit very well, and it helps Melissa is very beautiful.
My pictures after a while became monotonous and I needed something different. I decided to experiment with colors and fell in love with the idea of adding more color to my shoots.
Monica is so beautiful and weird in the best way possible. I've said it before, her vibe was so intoxicatingly amazing.
The idea of "P I N K" Stemmed from the idea of that an emotion can consume an individual. Her almost grey skin tone is a canvas and Pink represents the female energy that women carry.
Leslie Grey's incredible make up, she has this amazing style. Sam is cool too I guess.
Beauty is not defined your looks by the ability to look at what you are and see it for others.
Erica is just so awesome. It was nothing but good times shooting. Here we both agreed to try something different, this shoot to me is very reminiscent of 80's or 90's vogue photography with the added noise.
Reflections. Through our ignorance, we make rash decisions to justify our selfish desires. It's only through our vulnerable reflection, we take a look at who we are.
Candice truly is the best person I've worked with, if you're reading this I wish you nothing but the best
We lose ourselves either it be in the moment, a person or ourselves.
Through the simple act of doing, we find purpose. It's through that purpose we can find meaning.
Brittany is so artistic when she poses! I remember I told her she was my muse when we were constantly shooting. We would bounce ideas back and fourth creating amazing photos.
I wanted to do something special for my favorite holiday
Jen is just a special girl to me I cannot express that enough. This shoot was just another great example of teamwork and amazing look she gives.
Brittany and I had a creative spree when we first met. We decided to shoot randomly one day and take my car. It was such a short and sweet shoot but one of my favorites to say the least
Britney is am Instagram follower, this shoot was last minute but it worked so well! It was her last day in El Paso, so I texted her and we set this up.
Candice is so beautiful and talented. Projections is the aura and emotional energy that compels us to want more.
She's incredible. Enough said.
