back in may, i decided i wanted to use my blog for more than just my voice. i’m constantly posting photos on social media but i want you guys to meet the incredibly talented & driven people i get to shoot and call friends. so here’s the beginning of an ongoing blog series called Behind The Model. the link is in my bio ✨
I honestly have never been more happy. Life is stressful, but that never changes. What does change is how you let the stress affect you. I choose to let my experiences, my friends, my loved one to be the forefront of my life. Stress is there, but if you have support, love, happiness, really, does it matter?❤ this is for you. I love you.
Three things about me
1. I’m a source researcher. When I hear about a study, research finding, or piece of gossip, I like to go to the original source and find out how and where it came from before I make any informed decisions or form any opinions. If I find the facts to be particularly interesting, I get obsessed sometimes and have to become an expert. This is why I now eat only a plant based diet, I own a conservation picture framing business, and love to give hugs and love to anyone who looks like they may need it.
2. I was raised by an artist/master lithographer and so you might say it runs in the family. In addition to owning my own business and being a fine art photographer, I am also a painter/ sculptor and a video artist who goes by an anonymous moniker (like Banksy). I had some shows in New York and Los Angeles as well as had a few pieces written up about me in magazines but remained anonymous for all the video work. I love being the person behind the curtain.
3. I hate wearing accessories like jewelry, so taking this selfie was a bit of a stretch for me. I’m clearly uncomfortable and posing.
" There will be moments when you will bloom fully and then wilt, only to bloom again. If we can learn anything from flowers, it is that resilience is born even when we feel like dying." #neonsoul 🌻🌿- The past 8 months have been a season of wilt. I cannot thank the people who have stuck with me through this time of grieve and hurt, y'all know who you are. Now it's a season of blooming, I am content and joyful. 💛
I saw us
Standing above the heights
Face to face
I fell down
Darkness held me
You couldn't find me and I
Didn't search for you anymore -s.h kazmi 🥀
