Phenomenal Womyn

And we’re back! This post is rather overdue but, for good reason. This whole shoot was rather experimental but was an amazing experience. When people say you need to connect with the model, they aren’t kidding around. I was so lucky to have these two strong womyn as my models for this session. We had laughs, some serious talk, lots of hugs, and most of all, excitement.

This past Saturday, January 21st was day of national and international Women’s Marches. I was able to attend the local MN march but in essence, more than the real physical act of marching, it made me think of all the amazing women I already have in my life.

First we have Melysia. Melysia is incredible. If the first thing you notice isn’t her amazing face structure and eyebrows, then maybe I need to improve my editing skills. Aside from her fantastic face, Melysia is absolutely striking in presence and form. This first set of Melysia is my favorite.


Melysia is a natural. Of course, from the moment I met her, I knew she was phenomenal. It’s been a little over a year since we have met but man, she’s someone I immediately connected with. She’s incredibly independent, strong, and intelligent. She’s also a very stylish minimalist, which I love and admire.


Melysia is younger than me but wow, so much wiser than I was at her age. I’m envious!


& here, we introduce Mindy. Mindy and Melysia are very good friends. They were actually friends before I met either one of them, which is so wonderful. They are so blessed to have each other and have an inspirational friendship.


I met Mindy a little after Melysia but befriended her around the same time. Mindy has a very beautiful soul. She’s one of the sweetest and kindest womyn i’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. I’m fortunate to have her friendship. Additionally, she also has eyebrows to admire.


Mindy simply radiates warmth. She has a killer smile (sorry I didn’t as her to smile for the shoot). There’s a softness to her presence that is so alluring.


This last set of Mindy is my favorite of her. She was great!


If you have amazing womyn around you, thank them, spend time with them, build on those relationships. I have work to do with these two since they are newer in my life, but, I’m so appreciative of their friendship and the love they have shown me. Support the womyn (&men) in your life. Stay strong & soft, everyone.

Thanks for spending time here!
