Bree Abernathy was a sporty nerd in high school. She was in band, on the debate and the swim teams, and ran cross country. She is now in Los Angeles pursuing acting and comedy.
Bree explains that she pushed her body to its limits at a young age, so these days, due to sports injuries, she sticks to yoga as her exercise. This quirky redhead proved again to be adventurous as she teased in her sheer yoga gear at a nearby neighborhood park.
Blake Crawford appreciated the idea of photographing her with a natural, unrefined look. She understood that sometimes its better to not tamper much with a good thing. One of my favorite quotes is: if it ain’t broke, don’t break it.
Ok, so its just my own version of an all ready popular idiom, but that is how I often feel about cosmetic modifications such as makeup, piercings, surgery, tattoos, and sometimes even shaving/hair removal. Anyhoo, Blake has a fantastic raw beauty and seemed perfectly comfortable in her own skin.
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.
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!
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.
So this adorable 18 year old is Victoria Lynn from West Virginia. She came out to Los Angeles to do some nude modeling. I believe an agent found her on a webcam site and had her fly to LA the next afternoon. I can understand why, from her inviting eyes, full lips, and stunning natural curves.
You will definitely see more of them in upcoming galleries. Even though she was shy at first, which is understandable for such a young girl, Victoria began to warm up to the idea of public shooting during the process. I love it when a girl takes the initiative to express to me that she is having fun. Winning!
It was not hard to bring the rebel side out of Tristan Berrimore. We took these in one of the nicer neighborhoods of North Hollywood. Tristan is from Florida. Apparently, there are lots of naughty kids in that state. You ever seen the movie, Bully? That had a lasting impression of the Floridian youth on me.
I also recall the one time I was in the Sunshine State. It was for a wedding and we took the groom out for an impromptu bachelor party. At the club, the most eye-catching stripper wore a smile full of braces and did not look a lick above 17. Through my covert investigation, I discovered that my suspicions were justified. They grow up fast in Florida. True story.
Veronica Weston likes to put on a good show. For the most part, I sat back and just documented her devious nature on this day. Veronica admits to being an exhibitionist of sorts. There may not be many people in the background of these shots, but I assure you there were plenty of eyebrows being raised around lifeguard tower number five.
The shoes she’s wearing are quite awkward to walk in, which makes Veronica’s cartwheel in the bonus video clip all the more impressive. If you can believe it, this cheeky blonde had the audacity to ask if she did a good job. Yes, I’d say Veronica Weston gets an A on her report card. Summer days, I will miss thee.
If you’re not big on tattoos, I feel ya. If you do not like Piper Candless, tough. I have a few galleries on her. I had to trek back up to Palm Springs just to photograph Piper. She was leaving the area, so the window of opportunity was mighty slim. Nonetheless, I knew that I had to capture this eccentric beauty with her athletic body for your eyes.
We woke up at the crack of dawn for these images. Piper had her espresso, I had my camera. We get out there and within minutes, she tells me that this setting calls for her to strip out of her clothes. Alright, Piper. No complaints here. Can you see the Ryan McGinley influence on this one?
Courtney Laudner is a natural beauty who drove out to LA from Apple Valley. She struck me as a bit quiet and reserved. But then she told me that she has a wild side. Perhaps its all relative. People from that area tend to be rather religious … Conservative Christian religious.
I once had to drive through Apple Valley and it seemed every other radio station was playing a song about Jesus and Glory and all that Salvation business. I just hope the rapture doesn’t come too soon. I would like to photograph a few more lovely girls like Courtney before all is said and done.
