Southern Belle | Richelle Henry

“Over the years i have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” -Yves St Laurent

I have to say Richelle is one of the most inspiring women I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Throughout my photography journey she has shown a lot of support towards Chaotic Mind Photography. This shoot also featured the makeup works of Brenda Michel. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by these two amazing talents.

WAR

“Rape is a choice men make to use sex as a weapon for power and control. For rape to stop, men who are violent must be empowered to make different choices. All men can play a vital role in this process by challenging rape supporting attitudes and behaviors and raising awareness about the damaging impact of sexual violence. Every time a man’s voice joins those of women in speaking out against rape, the world becomes safer for us all.” - Men Can Stop Rape

I know this is a very rough subject but I wanted to share this with you guys. Rape is the most heinous of crimes. There has been a few incidents at my college where sexual abuse has been reported. It’s left many students shaken and worried that the next victim might possibly be them. If school isn’t a place we can hope to be safe then where is? No means No! As human beings we have to learn to respect that.
WAR: (Women Against Rape) Encourages all persons to exercise their rights by teaching them that their bodies and spirits
are sacred and no one may violate that in any way, it is your constitutional RIGHT.

“Violence against women and girls is an international epidemic. According to the United Nations, one out of three women will experience violence at some stage in their lives—a “severe and pervasive” situation according to former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Still, society rarely reflects upon the complicated roots of this devastating problem.” - Marianne Schnall

C’est l’amour | Nakita & Shawn

“Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again 

I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you
Cause I love you”

I love seeing happy couples. I had an absolute good time shooting my friend Nakita and her boyfriend Sean. It’s so amusing to watch the two of them interact. She is adorable when she is around him. It’s funny to watch her change from the tough girl she usually is to acting like a sappy teen in love. She promised me that when they get married I’ll be the photographer of choice. Well I’ll sure hold you to that Naki :)

Leather | Ayana

“Had a dream that you were in
The leather jacket that didn’t fit
Until we split in two

Half of you turned into glue
And half of me latched onto you
Under the summer moon”

I had to sneak in that very last photo although this shoot was more on the fierce side. I love photographing my models. I usually just keep those spontaneous-laugh-at my jokes photos to myself… :)
