Dancing in the Woods with Kyia W.

""I have always loved to paint and do art since i was a kid. In a college art class, i remember walking past a nude still life painting class and thinking "man! i really want to do that" and it's been on my bucket list ever since. Everyone struggles with fear to some degree. I personally feel that I do more so than others. In an effort to counteract this continuous fear, for the past five years, I have been challenging myself to push my limits, step outside my comfort zone and continuously try new things (hence why I shaved my hair. hahaha). This photoshoot was so liberating and I really felt like I was able to 'recharge my batteries' and just be in the present moment. It was nice to be out in nature and to rekindle my love for the environment, something I feel I take for granted most of the time. I am very thankful for the opportunity, Tyler and Molly are awesome people and I whole heartedly support the work they do." -Kyia W. 

 

Shooting with Kyia was an absolute blast! We both went to the same Highschool and graduated from the same class and reconnecting through the collaboration of art was exhilarating. Every now and then I get the pleasure of shooting someone who takes the reigns and busts out some killer ideas, such as spontaneously climbing trees and limestone bluffs leading to a very exciting and adventurous photoshoot. Kyla is an overall bad ass and has a fiery spirit that definitely scorched its way into the series, and I couldn't be happier about that.

 

Thank you Kyia, you rock.
