Over the weekend I got to not only meet up with and shoot with two of my favorite model babes (Anna Marx and Lolita Marie) but, I also got to meet and shoot with James Phelps of Photos by Phelps and Avalon Creative Arts. He is basically the master of capturing curvy women. Do not get me wrong, I am BEYOND grateful to have even been considered for this shoot, but it was definitely daunting to be up there with those two pros. This experience has really refilled my internal “go-getter” meter. When you work with greatness, you just want to get getting better.
What is a “Maenad,” you may be asking. To simplify thousands of years of Greek Mythology, the Maenads were the feral, beautiful, sexy raving mad women often associated with Dionysus.

I love everyone involved with this and hope I get to work with them again! Hope you all enjoy!
As always you can find me in many places. Go to them!
In the mystical burg that is Lebanon, Pennsylvania sits the photography studio of Scott Church. It’s massive, full of vintage props and dreamy areas to shoot in. There are huge windows letting in golden sunlight throughout the day. There is a cute dressing room covered in Marilyn Monroe posters and soft lighting. Three levels hold their own charm and the roof is covered in this squishy black flooring that burns your feet but overlooks the rather historical town around the building.
Shooting here was quite the experience. Honestly, I’ve never been in such a place with such talent. It was rather intimidating but fun. Even if I was just invited to sit around and hang out with Scott, I would have gone. There is just something about the building that makes you want to get creative and be free, uninhibited and love life.
I’m so glad I went. I’m so thankful I got invited. Thank you for the experience everyone.
My first Q&A! Thanks to everyone who sent questions to my various social medias! I got some interesting ones for sure. Keep sending those questions and suggestions because I love them and will probably be a dinosaur again. Who knows.
