It was pretty cool to get to photograph this moment. We met at a downtown studio in the afternoon, I arrived a bit early, Rosie arrived pretty soon after and it was pretty sweet to get to talk to her before they got started. She’s super nice and awesome to talk to. I don’t talk much but I think I spoke a lot to her, well I was comfortable. It was great to hear her excitement for the haircut, she was ready to let it go.
We got right to it once Dylan arrived. The space was beautiful and the lighting was great. I loved spending time with two fellow Scorpio women and artists with such open minds and empowering energies. I love having conversations with other ladies about the bullshit behind “how a women is supposed to look” in order to be pretty. Hair doesn’t identify us, we don’t need our hair on our heads to be long, or the hair on our arms, vaginas, ass, upper lip, etc. to be short or nonexistent to be identified as feminine. Or really in order for others to see us how they prefer to see us. We are what we want to be and the choices we make with ourselves are our choices only. This goes for anyone.
After the cut, Rosie and I got to it and took some shots of her. She’s so beautiful and so lovely to make images with.
