In all the wonderful craziness of summer weddings, military events and other photography events, I have been delighted to also see more of my photography published.
This time, it was finally receiving my finished copy of Samantha Rei Crossland's new book 'Steampunk & Cosplay Fashion Design & Illustration' that brought me added joy.
Samantha and I worked together on her 2012 line 'Second Star' where I photographed her Peter Pan inspired collection before heading into Minneapolis Fashion Week. Since then, Samantha has gone on to release two more collections, including 'Isabelle et Collette' - a 1940's French inspired look of two lovers and 'Black Pearl Lounge' - a 1920's Shanghai collection that premiers this past season. With a tag line of Beauty. Strength. Rebellion., Samantha strives to help women feel confident, strong and comfortable in their own skin. Trust me when I say, you need to check her out at www.samantharei.com.
For me, it simply another treasure as I realize my dream - to spend my days surrounded by creative people doing creative things. I never imagined I would see my work published, but this past year alone has brought such a reward three times! Such wonderful blessings and joy!
Here is a sneak peak at Samantha's new book and some of the pages and the back cover where my work appears.
