Story

Stella, the model, reached out to me several years ago about a photo project she had in mind and asked if I could help her bring it to life. We had an amazing shoot and now, though I moved away, whenever I am back in town I try to see if we can connect again for a photo shoot.

I happened to be visiting the town again and reached out to her in March to see if she had any ideas in mind, as she is creative herself! She said she had been envisioning an ethereal shoot, fairytale-like out in the woods or a meadow. From there, we found a nearby location and had about an hour to make a shoot happen.

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.” — Sylvia Plath
