My Muse

When I was in high school I used to make my friends and my sisters let me take their picture all the time. We would have these fun photo shoots and I would make them take their shoes off and stand in mud or water, or sit in dirt and I wouldn't feel sorry about it. I haven't had one of those shoots in awhile and my soul was craving it. Does your soul crave your hobby? I have found that mine does; I need to photograph. So I went back to basics and decided to take my favorite person to photograph. If I was to choose my muse, a creature that inspires me most, it would be Marin. On the way home, I told her that she was my favorite to take pictures of and she said, "Always have, always will." I love that the photos I take of her show her as she grows.

We both had fun during this shoot. Even though she was cold and she didn't like having her shoes off, she looked like a princess and she knew it. See other shoots (that I could find) here and here

  3. My siblings are my muses as well! And I literally just talked about this in my post yesterday! Kids convey such emotions through photography and it's so natural. The colors in your photos are gorgeous, just like your little sister

  24. These are amazing! I wish I had a sister little enough to model for me -- but alas, she's 21 and hates pictures of herself. :)

  32. I love this post. I read it & felt your passion for photography because I am the same way. So I told my little sister that she's 'my muse'. I've been taking photos of her since she was little. Now she's at BYU-I & I crave to have some sort of fine art-shoot with her.
    PS. you look like & have the same mannerisms as my best gal friend, so I know we'd get along just swell.
    Love your photos,
