Hey momma, rock me....Prince Rama


I stumbled across these girls on my way back to my friend's flat after my first Brooklyn editorial and fell  IN LOVE!!!
If it wasn't their outfits, glitter or amazing creativity oozing from every pore that got me 
then it was no doubt their esoteric synchronized dance moves that stole my heart forever more.
These Brooklyn babe+o+trons running off of Paw Tracks records are just the kind of girl+girl act that i cannot live without. See them live for all the magic. I snapped the last two shots with my iphone that balmy summer night.........
It's the Now Age. - check out their passion project,

Take in the sunshine, smell the rawhides, Pendleton blankets and the sweet NW air.
Feast your eyes on the lacey dream-catchers and the raw garnet and crystal talisman necklaces and your are lost. 
Lost in the beauty of it all, yet found in the moment until you let it pass. 
This shoot was very special to me, as it is with two of my best friends in the magical Pacific Northwest. 
I can't wait to get back and spend the beautiful early fall's sunset sessions on the rooftops of good ol' Southeast Portland.
