Happy Friday! Today feels like a bit of a Monday for me as I'll be working the next seven days, getting one day off and working three more, but nothing I can't handle. I spent a period of two years working seven days a week. This week I'll be traveling to the fashion convention MAGIC in Las Vegas to photograph with Idol Mind. I've never been to MAGIC but if you've been to one trade show or convention then you've been to them all.
I'm personally a bigger fan of working in the realm of the unexpected, such as today's set with the return of Goddess Chelsea Hanes. I've been desiring putting out this set for a little while because of how special it is to me. In our previous two sets I had taken Chelsea to some pretty epic places, but on this day we wanted to keep things somewhat low key, so we headed to El Porto in Manhattan Beach, eventually winding up in Venice. I particularly like El Porto because it's fairly solitary as far as beaches in LA go. Chelsea and I found a few cool props on the beach that led to some really spiritual feeling shots. Walking on the beach we also found a bunch of beautiful shells for Chelsea to use in her work. During the course of our shoot Chelsea decided to go topless, which made for some beautiful and raw shots.
On the beach Chelsea and I were having a really deep conversation about all sorts of things. Somewhere in there we confessed feelings one another and so started the journey we are currently on. We had been flirty in our time together but I didn't particularly see this coming as she has a boyfriend. Chelsea revealed to me that they are poly and had been crushing on me. I was head over heels for Chelsea the first time I laid eyes on her and had been trying to put it out my head. After this love confession we continued our shoot including Chelsea wearing my signature leopard print vest and an nWo Wolfpac t-shirt from my youth. Overall it was a really magical shoot with Chelsea as always so please enjoy!
