I am currently writing this blog post from the PHX airport waiting for my flight to Seattle for the next few days. If you follow me on Snapchat (ballard_ashley), you know that I am ALWAYS here. Being addicted to globetrotting is the most fulfilling hobby ever. I am always exploring new things and fantasizing about the day that I move out of the desert.
I love these photos a lot. They also felt a bit emotionally difficult to shoot, though. I try to avoid full-body mirrors a lot of the time so I don’t have negative thoughts about myself, so it was a little bit of a challenge to keep my mind in a positive place while playing with these mirrored windows with photography buff DILLON IVORY. Between the lighthearted conversation and playing with smoke bombs for fun, I ended up feeling great by the end of these shots. I place a very high value on photographers who make you feel confident, comfortable, and safe, and Dillon is certainly one of those people.
While I am in Seattle and Portland, I’ll be making some great stuff so you can follow along on my adventures! Can’t wait to share some of my favorite spots with you guys. My best friend and I will be seeing Purity Ring on Friday night, so tune into Snapchat to see them play!
I’m about to board, so until tomorrow. xx
