Wow, I honestly can’t believe I had the privilege of taking these photos. This shoot was done in a space that I first glimpsed over a year ago and have been pining after ever since. It’s a friend’s beautiful sun room in a big house in Madrona, and this February I finally had the courage ask her if I could shoot in it.

I first reached out to Aysia when I found her profile on Model Mayhem,
a site that has been a huge help for finding models over the years. She ended up being perfect for the job.

I shot Ilford this time instead of Tri-x for my black and white images, and they came out so moody and dark. I definitely will be shooting more Ilford from now on.

These photos truly embody something that I’ve never been able to capture before, and I couldn’t be more proud and excited. Thank you, Aysia and Mary, for helping me make this happen!
