I have a new doll on the way. She is my first Black doll with a lovely head I've named Monica and an alternate head (that is an Indian/Bollywood head) whom I've named Tara.
I have to tell you, I haven't shot any people lately. Initially I wanted to wait until after my heart surgery because I won't be able to lift the dolls for the four months following the surgery (my husband will help me out thankfully). I figured during that time, I would concentrate mostly on shooting humans. Until then- it was to be all dolls all the time. Basically take advantage of my strength while I've still got some! But now I am starting to feel my depression lift and I find the need to have somebody stunning (and breathing) in front of my camera. I am going to call on my two favorite models, and ask them to shoot with me (separately).
One is the stunning Ami. You've seen her photo here a bunch of times. I am enamoured with that womans natural beauty. Her face is Swedish perfection and she is a wonderful person to boot. The other model is Cristi (pictured above). I adore her. Gorgeous, lithe and dangerously intelligent, I love to photograph her. She is edgy and fashion all at once and lest I forget, sexy as hell...
* (in my best old timey gangster accent) the above photo is Cristi smoking all seductive like, see.
