we climbed a mountain to tell this story, and we were chased around by a swarm of bees – okay, i was the only one running in all honesty, because while i love nature unlike anything, i am absolutely terrified of bees. so i may have ran in circles a few times around pixi and josh, while holding my camera, screaming.

but when i wasn’t running.. i photographed them building a home with sticks, thai-boxing, making-up, reading little notes from their “like book”, and looking up the different plant varieties in their arizona field guide. i invited them to explore in their own playground, and be their beautifully raw selves, while i prompted them and photographed them with my whole heart. and here is the result.

a heart-made, most strikingly honest portrait series, inspired by pixi and josh.
