Photo Shoot Today…

I haven’t worked with a photographer in quite some time. I had one local photographer that I was planning on working with, but it just didn’t come together. A few other male photographers have contacted me here in Iowa, but their work didn’t resonate with me. This photographer has read my blog, which always makes…

Video Stills: Woman to Woman Tantric Massage

The quality leaves something to be desired…these are just a few video stills from our woman to woman Tantric massage video shoot last night….Joy sighs…I love how rapidly connection is possible and deep bonds are created through the art of sacred touch…From my heart to yours, Joy

La Figa: Visions of Food and Form

I am sooooo excited! I discovered this amazing project, La Figa: Visions of Food and Form by Chef Tiberio Simone Photographed by Matt Freedman…I asked Tiberio and Matt if they would be interested in having me write a feature article in the form of a blog post about La Figa…with a photograph of me in whatever style…

Peace of Time: Fear, jitters and then…accpetance…

Well, this morning I awoke to 3 sick children..When they are sick, they generally want only me…funny how the universe likes to play with us and test us…the shoot today is supposed to be about capturing the essence of me…not the essence of the mother I am, or my role as wife, teacher, sister, daughter, friend…nor is…

A Moment In Time: Sensual Photography

I have yet another photo shoot scheduled for tomorrow! Although I have not yet had the honour of working with Bob, I was so impressed with not only the images he captures, but with his expression and perception of ‘sensual photography’ that I asked him to write a guest posting to share with you…I also look…
