You know what’s funny? My personal style and brand is so dang girly and that truly is how I am as a person. I recently had to write a piece about myself for a magazine (that’s to hit newsstands next month!!) and I described myself as a glass-half-full-color-loving kinda gal. But I’m also a very introspective person who’s drawn to deep, feely things. I shot a fashion editorial two weeks ago, just got the film back, and man oh man, I was so surprised by how MOODY and MELANCHOLY the whole vibe looked. I had a vision of what it would look like that in my head, but seeing the final images made me realize I have such a dreamy, hazy side to me that my personal style/graphic design/illustration/quirkiness doesn’t know.
I was watching an interview with Grace VanderWaal (don’t remember which one it was) a few months back and one of the questions she got asked was if her songs always come out the way she imagines them. Her answer was no and sometimes the final result surprises her, but even so, it’s like the song was in her all along and it had to come out, she just didn’t know it. That’s the way I feel about my photography. I go in with loose expectations, but whatever comes out, comes out. Que sera, sera. It was in me all along.
Do you often feel like you have multiple styles?
