so HEY, SISTA! is a photography workshop that Allison Harp and I put on with the help of HART Floral and Meagan Bechtel. it always ends up just feeling like friends new and old, good conversations, a time of being restored and renewed and encouragement. part of it, allison and i each run a live shoot to take away any of the mystery behind our process and then live edit a few of the photos afterwards. and that brings me to these two. ty and ciara are the two most genuine incredible people (example, after they left i kept hearing choruses of "gahh--they were just so nice" --but, of course i knew that) and they agreed to make the trek out from LA to the desert for my live shoot and it felt SO good. in my bones good. every new year i say "i feel like i know who i am now!" but idk, maybe we never totally figure it out. and maybe constantly seeing what everyone else is doing has influenced us to take diversions away from who we are at our core. so i'm working on that. but this definitely felt like me. and that's a good feeling. forgiving more (ourselves included) loving more sharing more.
can i shoot in joshua tree every single day?
