Curves

I used to be extremely overweight, I weighed 140 kg/308 lbs, and looking in the mirror used to be the hardest things in the world. I avoided my reflection like the plague and when I did saw myself, I would die a little inside. There was a point in my life where I decided I was done feeling hideous and awful about myself…Something needed to change! I flushed my medication through the toilet, dragged myself … Continue readingCurves

Man

This week, I really wanted to honor my boyfriend Clint. Even though I’ve made thousands of photos of him during the years we’ve been together, he just had to be my model for this week’s theme “Man”. I’m very lucky to call him my partner in life, my best friend, and the person I call home. He is extremely kind, loyal, and even though he can be very irritating at times, he is the one … Continue readingMan

Tom made all the important events with my family so special: He turned a whole restaurant into a concert during Christmas dinner and parties into improv jamming. He played at family weddings, birthdays, live with his bands and he made the difficult … Continue readingMusic

There was no doubt in my mind that she could pull off representing my meaning of “Red” and she surely delivered! There is strength in “Red”, a popping color that can embody all kinds of strong feelings like power, passion, love, sexuality, danger, … Continue readingRed

A Perfect, Little Moment

For me, this week flew by in a blink of an eye. I’ve had lots of appointments, new opportunities and even accomplished some big (life) goals! In all the chaos, I’ve only had a few peaceful moments where I could just sit down and enjoy the stillness around me. This was one of those moments. A moment where the platform at the train station was completely abandoned, empty and silent, just before some new trains … Continue readingA Perfect, Little Moment
