Ikea in Burbank is crawling with people on a Sunday. It is especially busy when they are having some sort of Disney promotion just outside of the storefront. However, this did not deter the fantastic Aysha Thoen and I to try and sneak some shots as devout Christians, fresh out of mass, shopped for trendy new furnishings for their domicile.
It was tough, but we were patient and were able to find a few semi-private nooks for Aysha to show off her sensual stockings. I also did finally try the famed Ikea Swedish meatballs on this day. They paled in comparison to the lovely girl I shared them with. So here she is again, back by popular demand, Ms. Aysha Thoen.
Aubrey comes from the Midwest. Her easy-going attitude and bright smile seem ingrained in her personality. We visited a local college campus here in Santa Monica and saw how deviant we could be.
While shooting the panty shots, some guy saw us from about 100 yards away and stayed hidden behind a barrier to see what peeks he could get. Aubrey just seemed to laugh it off and enjoy the warm weather out.
Athena Adrianna is a young Jersey girl out in LA. She studies fashion and design. Athena is not shy and loves to rave. I tried playing some of my ‘old school’ electronica to see if she was familiar with any of it. But apparently Bassnectar and Deadmau5 are the new Aphex Twin and The Prodigy.
She still thought they sounded cool, so I was pacified. I wonder how the young kids felt when they heard Fatboy Slim at the closing ceremony for the London Olympics. I just hope they do not have the same reaction as I do to songs like Pinball Wizard. Hated it! (in flamboyant voice). Anyways, nothing but love for this fun & beautiful girl who is homesick for the East Coast.
Ashlee Hills came to Los Angeles to work in the adult industry. Everyone that met her knew that she would be successful in this endeavor. She was 19, beautiful, and very wild with desire. Due to some unexpected circumstances, this ‘dream’ never came to fruition.
Amber Sym is from Florida. Her fit figure, which is all natural, has afforded her many opportunities in nude modeling. She has worked for several big production companies including Playboy.
Amber has an adventurous personality and loves to try new things. She has even dabbled in a bit of parkour. That’s where you jump and run and climb over obstacles in the street and try not to break your face. Agile Amber is definitely not your typical model.
Alyson Grey is about as cool as they come. I didn’t have to twist her arm into smiling for photos. She naturally beams on a regular basis. We took these at her relative’s place. You may observe the owners are a bit ‘old school’, see the corded phone relic.
At first, I thought it’d be cool to showcase it in the photos, but later I had second thoughts. If anything, it takes me back mentally to a time when I’d wrestle my sister for use of the phone to speak with the objects of our teen affection. We have come a long way since the 90s.
Alice Wonder wants to ride her bicycle. As much as Freddie Mercury? Probably not. However, I know she would never use banned substances just to ride faster than others like good ol’ Lance. Which brings me to a subject that has been on my mind for a while. Mr. Armstrong was admired by millions because he battled cancer and was a champion.
Pistorius was similarly glorified for competing on the Olympic track without most of his lower limbs. Yet both of these global tales of heroism are now tainted with scandal. Lance was on the juice and Pistorius allegedly gunned down his girl out of jealous rage. What’s next? It just goes to show that we’re all flawed, well except Alice Wonder of course. Less evening news, more Zishy!
Alexis Celeice has some modeling experience. Can you tell? Minutes after arriving at her place, I picked up on the vibe that she was very concerned with her image as a model and would be a bit reserved. I didn’t really care.
She was so gorgeous that I was going to photograph her within her comfort zone to make sure she made it to Zishy. Alexis is from Northern California and was raised around guns, trucks, and a protective father. She is Manifest Destiny.
Alaina Fox is a soft spoken nineteen year old from Northern California. Early this Summer, her and her boyfriend packed up their things and decided to make a go for it out here in Los Angeles.
Alaina loves to eat organic, natural foods and often opts for vegetarian dishes. Her guilty pleasure is a bean and cheese burrito from her local Mexican joint. She says eats three or four of them every week!
Geri Burgess is as beautiful as they come. When I first met her, I thought my style of photos would be too much for a girl with such a sweet disposition. I was pleasantly surprised to be incorrect. Geri loves to travel and to run.
She already graduated from college but has sought out adventure since receiving her diploma. She shared stories about wild times in Japan that even made me raise my brows. Geri is a unique young woman who reminded me never to judge a book by its cover.
