I’m that person that is reminded of songs almost every time someone says a phrase that happens to also be lyrics to a song. Someone said “just the two of us” to me the other day referring to us going somewhere together and my brain started singing Will Smith’s song “just to the two of us, we can make it if we try…” ahahaha so I am titling this set with Maddy and Shamon ‘Just the Two of Us’. Even though it was the three of us making magic in my house, it was their presence that tied this all up. I haven't been sharing my non erotic shoots on my blog but I loved this collab so much, so fuck it! I hope you enjoy.
Maddy and I love working together, we get along so well, and in the year that we’ve known each other she is always the nicest when we run into each other AND her mom always expresses how much she loves me. I have recently been thinking about the support around me of POC and Yt people, I hate separations and I hate that we live in the world that we do but the reality is apparent and things ARE the way they are. My mom is an immigrant that doesn't speak any English and to some people out in the world she is worthless, and as much as I love my yt artist friends, I am still an unfashionable fat brown female artist in a world of yt artists that get more recognition and support. But instead of drowning we keep stroking.
It’s been like that in my life since always, Middle School, High School, Art School, my previous career. But I will continue to move forward being who I am and creating what I do, so I very much appreciate the support of everyone, brown, yt, blue, pink, yellow, red. (not just a caption or post saying you support POC/artist of color but really support)
And I love that when working with the people I do, just for that hour or two or three of shooting none of that shit matters. So I love Maddy for treating me like a talented artist despite what I look like.
This was my first time meeting Shamon, and let me tell you, he’s fricking cool! Him and I have some more goodness coming your way very soon.
