My Badass Day!

Hey lovelies, Wow, things are flowing with such epic beauty I am weak at the knees. My day began with an empowering meeting where I drew some boundaries and did not allow myself to respond to someone else’s needs at the expense of my own (Joy pats herself on the back for learning to grow…

A Tad Risque: Photo of Joy

The photographer I worked with recently managed to let me be me for a few moments here and there. I found that, because of his professionalism and ability to let me flow without being intrusive, I was able to find glimmers of my inner Goddess…I will not be sharing the more in depth implied nudes,…

Photo Shoot: Pictures of Joy

So…I had excellent chemistry with the photographer I worked with today. Unfortunately, because it was our first photo shoot, I definitely found it difficult to “drop into myself” and let my guard down. At the same time, I actually don’t hate a few of the photos he took. As for my photographer…somehow I thought he…

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, Tantra and Tantric Massage

Well, I have now attended 3 Tantric massage photo shoots and 2 Tantric massage video shoots. Through a process of error and trial, I now have a vision for how I want my full Tantric massage video to unfold….I picture a glorious temple with my beautiful Shakti…allowing the process to unfold naturally…not time to rush, bathing…

Behind the Scenes Video: La Figa Photo Shoot…

Food is love. Food is pleasure. Food is everything. La Figa: Visions of Food and Form features a spectacular collection of sensual photography — models wearing nothing but the edible creations of James Beard award-winning chef Tiberio Simone. Using the human body as his canvas, and natural fresh ingredients as his paint, Simone’s elegant and tasteful…

La Figa Photo: Taken by Eden Nelson (my daughter)

My daughter Eden and I headed into downtown Seattle this afternoon. We explored the shops in China town, ate sushi at a cute little sushi bar and then headed to my photo shoot with Tiberio and Matt for La Figa…as I mentioned in my earlier post, Eden is an aspiring artist, fashion designer and photographer….

Photo Shoot and My Tantra Summit Interview Tomorrow!

I am up really late for a chick that’s having a photo shoot tomorrow. Ah well, that’s me…the night owl. I am heading down to Seattle tomorrow afternoon with my 15-year-old daughter. We’re going to walk around Seattle for a while, grab a bite to eat and then head to my photo shoot with Tibrio and…

Body Image: Not Always Sexy…

I’m not sure if I have fully expressed to you, my wonderful readers, what this photo shoot process is about for me on a personal level…As most of you know, I experienced sexual abuse from a very young age…it lasted for quite some time, until I found my voice and the courage to stand up for…

Behind the Scenes: Tantric Massage Shoot!

Well, I went to bed last night planning on going straight to sleep, but my yoni had a slightly different plan! My lover and I made the most passionate love for over an hour…which allowed me to fall into a deep sleep…I did find myself briefly contemplating Bob’s shoot and words…which brought me to thinking…

A few photos and an udpate…

Well, my shoot with Bob was interestingly enough a part of my healing journey…I was planning on just shooting in the woods behind my house, but Mountain suggested that Cama Beach here on our little island, would provide a much better terrain…so I ventured into the wild with Bob…this may sound like nothing to you, but for…
