And my job is amazing because I got to hang out and dress babes like these all day for a photo shoot. #chubbycartwheels
The assumption that a woman has to somehow be broken or damaged to have sex for money negates everything that feminists have been trying to fight for—that women are autonomous beings that are capable of making their own decisions and deserve the same respect, protection and opportunities that men have—regardless of the industry in which they work.

During the summer I had the pleasure of being shot by one of my photography heroes Matt Barnes.
I’ve LOVED Matt’s work for years and watched his blog from afar on pins and needles to see what he would come up with and share with the world next.
So - when he asked to shoot me I of course said yes but I was nervous as all hell!! In general I’m not scared in front of a camera but Matt’s a HUGE deal - he shoots Drake and countless other celebs….and then there’s little ol me?! Derek Woods even had to give me a pep talk before I left for the shoot (thank you Derek I love you!!!!!) so I could pull myself together.
Matt and his team were great to work with although I wasn’t myself. They don’t work how I’m used to working. I shoot with friends. Normally I just goof off in front of the camera and it ends up working out. But there I was with three guys and a ton of super bright lights on me….I kinda froze. I didn’t freeze completely but I sucked. I left feeling like I had completely ruined the day.
Fast forward to now - months later and the above is one of the photos that I found in the folder Matt sent me earlier this morning. Honestly I was taken back at first because they’re SO different than anything I shoot of myself. That’s not a bad thing. The more I looked at the images the more I liked them (just like you said Katie). I continuously find it so interesting to see how others see or perceive me. How different I can look depending on who shoots me. Or even the day someone shoots me. It’s always an adventure.
More to come from this set and I hope that Matt one day gives me another chance to be on the other side of his lens.
