Ivy | Desert Portraits

When it comes to photography, my first passion has been and will always be portraits.  I love raw, uninhibited glimpses of others. And I love stories.  What draws me to a portrait is the feeling of being able to view the world as seen through the photographer and subject's eyes.  I can literally spend hours totally transfixed by the work of photographers like Ryan Muirhead (I did in fact stay up very late perusing his Instagram feed, which I strongly encourage everyone to check out @ryanmuirhead).

Ivy was an absolute dream to photograph. This stunningly beautiful human has the most vibrant and playful personality. With three cameras strapped to me, I ran around like a crazy person to capture her energy, photographing until the sun went down.
