Tattooed Martha

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Sasha, aka Tattooed Martha.  Not only is she the a fellow Iowan and one of the sweetest people I have ever met but she also has a knack for cooking, crafting, and most importantly, tasty cocktails.  

The mission of her blog is to inspire others to create something each and everyday and from the looks of it she is succeeding.  I was more than thrilled when she asked me to do a shoot for the blog.  Here are just a few of my favorites images.  Of course we had to find a way to get her favorite cooking ingredient in there, Sailor Jerry Rum.

And...keep your eyes peeled because we aren't done yet, we have another shoot coming up in the near future.  Keep up with Tattooed Martha by following her blog or her facebook.  If you aren't sure just what recipe to try out first, I recommend the spicy rum pulled pork sliders.

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
