GETTING PRIMAL

LOCATION: HAIKU, HAWAII   |   MODEL: LAUREN   |   ORIGIN OF PIECES: GUAM & BALI  | TATTOO: GIRL WITH THE TEMPORARY TATTOO

I'm a collector of beautiful things...I admit it. And my eyes naturally gravitate toward all beautiful things without a second thought. I suppose you could say, I have a beautiful problem... 

Must be the Taurus in me ;-) 

Over the years I've tried to gently accumulate pieces from my travels around the world...mainly one-of-a-kind leis, uniquely designed shell necklaces, and eye catching wall decor. And I use the word "gently" because if I could, I would buy ALL the pieces I've ever seen and bring them home with me! Remember Amanda, self control, self control...

I recently decided to lose some self control and create a series of portraits using some of my most prized pieces on one of my most prized friends, Lauren. You may remember her from my "For Art's Sake" blog post back in January. I keep her around not only because she's awesome, but because she's always down to shoot anything - and I mean anything. Doesn't hurt that she's beautiful (but far from a problem!). 

Get primal, get artsy, get down to your roots <3
