Not much to say, so I'm just going to post some new work. Enjoy:

vintage and tea

I've been working on several new images this past week and am very happy with the results. I hadn't made anything in almost a month and was feeling uninspired. I decided to play around with a few old shots and came up with this piece:

delicate morning

I then got inspired and found some beautiful vintage props from my parent's house and came up with this piece:


and this polaroid diptych:

It's a shot of my mother's pink wedding dress from Saks Fifth Avenue in 1969. On it is a tin pink flower that's from the wrapping of the first christmas present my father ever gave her. (a white fur coat)

new work

I've been doing a lot of new work in two series lately. The first is a femininity series. It's focused mainly on elegance, evening and softness. Layers of lace and sparkle. Here's a couple from that series:

whisper gently

a little bit of sparkle
The second series is focused on childhood and the feeling of being not quite ready to grow up. I've been using mainly plastic jewelry and summer childhood activities like hula hooping and blowing bubbles.
