Amazing headshot and series I did with Tanya. I hope to shoot with her again!

Philadelphia, PA. April 2012.

p.s- I am native american, before anyone gets nasty. 70% choctaw and apache.

Update 8/11/2012:

I just want to say a very HUGE thank you to everyone who has stood up for me on this post to the people being bigots and hateful towards women. I am extremely proud to be Native. I am so glad so many people can see that.

I definitely don't walk around dressed like this. I was raised to be very into the "now" and "present" but never forget what we came for and my blood line. I won't say much else, because it can get long and tedious. Plus very hurtful.

As for being "racist" against my own culture for being "nude" in this photo. That seems utterly ridiculous. I am so glad to see so many people standing up for women's rights. We should not have to hide our bodies because of prejudice and what men might do to us. People need to become progressive and not cavemen.

I plan on writing a very long blog post about this one of these days when I have time.

I want to say thank you again for everyone's POSITIVE comments. I wish I could answer every single one of them! I love you guys!

I have to say, you are quite beautiful. Racial stereotypes for all races or genders can be found, even in the current dominant one. Sometimes people hate because they are either Insecure or just haters by nature. In this world though, you have to be careful because people hate what is different. This is seen in history and in present day. Society does change over time, but the natural nature of people do not. But just because it's easier for people to be mean or violent, it doesn't mean they should. We are all humans who make conscious decisions and we are responsible for said decisions.

What a beautiful shot. Never mind that you are an incredibly beautiful woman, the image itself is spectacular. I commend you for posing for it.

you do have the facial structure of a Native American. I can definately see it in your complexion and hair.  It's good to at least female artists standing up and not letting the world's negative energy or criticism get them down.

Simply beautiful

Personally think it's a good mix of different themes and is at least keeping things simple. So aestetically looks nice. If I could spell that word.
