You probably remember the gorgeous Talia Schulz from our previous shoots together but in case you're not sure our origin here it is: One fateful 4th of July I attended a party at a friend's art studio. I met a bunch of wonderful people including three people I really wanted to photograph. One of them never got back to me, the second and I went on the shoot and she bailed after about 20 minutes of shooting telling me that she's just not comfortable in front of a camera, and the third happened to become one of my favorite babes to kick it with and make art: Talia Schulz. This is my first set with Talia in a while and I'm super stoked to present it to you.
Talia and I stay in touch pretty regularly, it's just hard working out a schedule since we both have so many things going on but we decided a night shoot in to the woods was appropriate especially given the bright light of the full moon. Talia and I made our way to Solstice Canyon and had a really fun time catching up and discussing so many fun topics. We decided to shoot in the first building at Solstice as it had gotten rather chilly so we wouldn't be able to visit the inner building (which is plenty ok as I've shot there a bunch). Talia is from Hawaii so I always love asking her about the culture there. She taught me the term "try wait", which essentially means to slow down and breathe for a moment. I thought it was super appropriate for our set. Oh also Talia helped me out with an image for Hanukkah posing with a pillow my Mom made for me years ago. Talia is not Jewish herself but her brothers are so basically an honorary Jew! Talia is also a part of a burlesque troop called the Dollface Dames so if you're in LA make sure to check her out!
