It has been about a year since I first met Kendra Sunderland. A lot of people know the vague details of her story: girl gets caught masturbating on webcam in her college library. I remember reading the viral news articles and thinking; Goddamn, it would be fantastic if I could get her on Zishy.
I sent off a few messages that night and I awoke to a promising reply in my inbox. Within 48 hours, I was on a plane to Portland. Any success I have achieved has been a result of rejecting a pessimistic mindset. Likewise, I sensed much optimism in Kendra. I know she has endured a shitload of pain and fear due to the judgment of others, and all at a young age.
The unique Piper Candless returns. She invited me to snap these photos at a posh home she was house-sitting for a couple of weeks. Every time I visit Palm Springs, I feel the enchantment Sinatra, Liberace, Dean Martin and countless others must have felt .
It is a destination which forces a slower pace than the choleric state that Los Angeles often has you in. If I ever get the opportunity to shoot a girl like Piper again in this relaxing desert setting, you can be sure I won’t hesitate.
