Your rain dances have been answered, Hannah Kinney is back. If there was a tally of how many direct emails I get about any specific girl, I’m sure Hannah’s name would be at the top of the list. This sultry beauty is also a guilty pleasure of mine. She’s like that Skrillex song that I hate to admit is really fucking good.
To explain, I am not one who usually goes for piercings or tattoos. Hannah has plenty of both. Nonetheless, her smile and her sex appeal make me forget about my hangups. Now, I’m not so naive to think that any female is all sweet and no sour, but Hannah sure does have a way about her. She’s from Missouri and is in college studying graphic design. More H K to come.
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.
Jade Couture AKA Natasha Malkova is as pretty and sweet and natural as they come from Southern California. She first gives you the impression that she’s a bit reserved, but when you ask her to strip down or do something provocative, you can’t sense the least bit of hesitation. Jade keeps close with her small group of friends and they enjoy going out on hikes and other random excursions in nature.
Although she is friendly and full of smiles, one can sense that Jade is a quiet and thoughtful person. She claims that when she was young, her parents kept her in unflattering clothes and hence made her feel a bit like the ugly duckling in school. Seems like that is no longer the case.
I photographed Isabel Carvajal at her place in North Hollywood. Isabel came up with the idea of a bath-time photoshoot when I mentioned that I wanted to do something special for Valentine’s Day. She suggested some bubbles, wine, and candles. I must say our execution was not the best. The bubble bath didn’t have enough bubbles (always go with Mr. Bubble), we didn’t have a bottle of wine to open, and the candles were mostly overpowered by the ambient light in her bathroom.
Nonetheless, I had beautiful Isabel without a stitch of clothing on, her roommate was away for the afternoon, and she was ready to get soaked. So I hope that you enjoy this silly holiday and that most of you manage to get some!
You might be stressed about the holidays. You might be wracking your brain over the perfect gift for your grandmother. You might be begging the Sun to stick around longer each day to warm up your old bone. Fuck it, man. That’s what my spiritual guru says.
Fuck it, man. You will pull through. January will come around shortly. Then safety, balance, and routine will be restored. And just as you burp up the aftertaste of your last eggnog, you will scratch your head and wonder what all the fuss was about. For now, enjoy Luna Kitsuen on a warmer day of the calendar. More from inside the wigwam to come, as well as a splash-filled vid.
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.
Upon editing these photos, I realized how the sequence makes no sense. Why would Kelly Lamprin rub lotion on her skin only to jump into the shower shortly after? Did anyone notice this oddity before reading these notes? If you did, you deserve a badge for being hyper-observant.
I certainly would have missed it. All of my attention would be drawn to this incredible girl shedding her underwear and enjoying a hot shower. The water was so warm it made Kelly’s bottom turn red. I found that to be absurdly cute. After drying off, Kelly rushed to her job at a local movie theater. Her clientele must have had no clue that they just missed the real show. BTW, a monthly subscription to Zishy costs less than a movie ticket. Just sayin’.
Natalie Moore is originally from Maryland. So when I asked if I could photograph her enjoying some SoCal beach rays, the idea met with a resounding ‘yes’. We made sure to first cool our innards with frozen drinks provided by Taco Bell, a proud sponsor of Zishy. I wish.
Then we hit Playa Vista and turned heads at the basketball courts. I suppose they found me attractive. Once we got to the water, it did not take long for sand to crawl up every crevice of Natalie’s. After moshing with waves, she rinsed at the showers alongside some kiddos. Even today, my car’s backseat holds sandy souvenirs from this outing with Natalie Moore. It was worth it.
I found one of the comments in the previous gallery to be spot-on. It recognized that Essie Halladay is a gift. I am confident that you will never find images of her anywhere else. See, Essie has a private personality, is a day dreamer, seems to be quite introverted, and rarely follows through with her engagements.
Most people probably get frustrated and simply give up on Essie. Understandable, but unfortunate. When Essie finally comes through, it is like a wonderful dream that you only wish you could have every time you sleep. The lessons of Essie: be relentless, be prepared, be grateful.
