I really need to share more from my shoots with Danya. I was just looking at the website and noticed that I had only shared a bit from one, so far! SO, here’s an installment from our first shoot together – down by the river. I learned on our drive out that Danya was already a fan of my work (“I f***n LOVE YOUR WORK!!!”) she said. I think because of that, there was a vibrant enthusiasm that added deepness to our shoot. So many powerful and authentic shots to share…

Up From the Past

MODEL / SARAH
PHOTOGRAPHY / JASON LEE

Sarah’s love for art is contagious. Not only has she modeled for years, but she has chosen to see her body as a canvas of memories and symbols important to her. As we walked along a nature preserve, chasing the golden light and finding interesting shapes and patterns for which we could add to and contrast, we discussed the ups and downs of life, parenting, family relationships and friendship. One thing that stood out was her comment on how important it is to have friends and family around you who support who you are and how you express yourself to others.

Gives Me Strength

MODEL / SHELLY

Shelly strikes me as the kind of woman who can do whatever she sets her mind to. She’s not afraid to drive through a field, off road, full of rocks (ask me how I know!) or crack down on a bad situation (she’s got stories!) Thankfully we didn’t have to face anything like that — we had a great time shooting on the Boise River in a breezy afternoon in one of my favorite canyons.

Time Was Never

MODEL / BRITTNEY
PHOTOGRAPHY / JASON LEE

Brittney is a young wife and mom and has a nice Instagram presence with a devoted fan base! Her sense of humor is contagious and you have to love her freckles! We decided to meetup and shoot near an old dam that’s become a museum on the river. Spending the cool morning sharing our mutual love of automobile restoration and talking about kids and family, we worked our way around the structure and park around it on both sides of the river. One thing Brittney definitely wanted to highlight in this shoot are her “tiger stripes!” She earned them and wants them to be seen and loved. Enjoy these fun shots!

Out Until Dawn

It’s always fun to meet and shoot with a new model. I love to hear the stories that brought us together to create art — to hear how our journeys collide and enhance each other’s lives. Adrianna had a plan to do 30 shoots for her 30th birthday and as the penultimate shoot, I got to be the 30th! We shot near a river where some buoys were left sitting around by somebody. I love incorporating “found objects” in a shoot and, with the late fall weather, these bright orange balls were just right!
