I did the Dark Shower images a number of times over the last 2 years. Went from no light on the background to a white one to see the water to very saturated colors. I like the color a lot. This on is special because the color is there, but the front light makes every […]

August 11, 2009 Body Art

It isn’t really milk, it is some high protein milk substitute I bought a HUGH bucket of at Costco. I thought I’d need a lot of it, but ended up only using about 4 cups for the whole kiddie pool. Once again the model is Alicia.

That Split Second

August 5, 2009 Dark Shower
