the story of cassandra & tim

i may be repeating myself here, but gosh, i truly have a dream job.

here i introduce a special duo,
just being around them i feel the strong supportive, light-yet-full-hearted love that they create. their surroundings bloom, their laughter is true, and there is depth in character in each one of them, a depth that only gets deeper when they are standing next to each other. 
truth in love.
partners.

i could continue to make a cheese platter of words for you, but instead i'll let the photographs tell you the rest.

HOLLOW TREE.

HOLLOW TREE.

we get asked all of the time as photographer's, what is your favourite thing to photograph? 
my answer is always changing.. but there always tends to be some means of portraiture. these days, representing a brand's manifesto through lifestyle photographs might be the answer. 

here's a compilation of some of the lifestyle photographs i have created over the last few months for hollow tree.

 


 

(( more than just candles ))

let's talk about this brand's manifesto >>

a brand manifesto is the heart, the soul, and the spirit of a brand.
it's a statement that's "bold, deep, and inspires action" -Rebekah Carter

ready for some inspiration?

HOLLOW TREE'S MANIFESTO:

Live Among The Trees
Learn To Speak Tree
Love The Wilderness
Treasure The Tree. Honour The Seed
Forests Are Libraries, Share Their Stories
The Art Of Being In Nature Is The Art Of Living
Scents Make Memories, Memories Make Magic
Exploration Is Finding The Thing We Love And Relentlessly Pursuing It
Walk On Forest Floors, Dance Barefoot In The Rain
Live Deliberately, Love With Abandon
Follow Your Heart, Trust Your Instincts
Don’t Do Things Because They Are Difficult, Do Them In Spite Of It
All Good Things Are Wild, And Free
Take Long Walks In Stormy Weather
Love Where You Live
The Mountains Are Calling
Remember That A Forest Starts With One Tiny Seed
It Is In Our DNA To Continually Push The Boundaries
Let The Adventure Begin
Wander Wildly, Seek Sanctuary

thoughts become things:think pretty

"meher baba said it beautifully, "love has to spring from within.” you can’t coerce it from another person, but you can be it, and it catches on. it’s very catchy. you are it, and then somebody else catches it from you. when I am centered, i can walk into any vibrational field and take it and convert it. i am just feeling love, so whatever they are giving to me – anger, paranoia, distrust – i am just taking it all in and converting it. i see the net they are stuck in, this mind net that is each person’s own model of the universe, so instead of climbing into it with them, putting both of us in it, my job is to say, “yes, I see your net, but we are here.” then, immediately, here we are on a new level. 

all of that stuff of the mind net starts to fade to this greater force, and then it goes through everybody you meet, and they feel this fantastic force, and then when it feels pure enough, they open to it, and “they” become “us” and the force keeps passing through to others from these people that have opened it. and the more you transcend your own identity to something larger, you are able to override any other force fields, just by the nature of your being, because you aren’t so busy being you. 

as you get more and more cosmic perspective, and as you get finished with any kind of finite self-definition of oneself, you are more and more energy, and then everything you do, everything you think, happens. see, it’s got to scare you how much power you get, because you begin to see how your thoughts are manifested in form. many of you are beginning to see that already. you begin to see how you’re creating a universe. It gets very scary to me at times how it looks, how everything i think, happens; and then i realize it’s synchronicity; it’s always happening, I just haven’t noticed it. i’ve been so busy, you know… stuck somewhere else"  -RAM DASS

to be asked if i wanted to do some portraits of this BUNDLE of energy , of life , of LOVE - how lucky, how humbling. an unravelling courageous soul, to say the least. she let me tattoo her a few weeks ago , too, when her incredible friends threw together a surprise party to celebrate her last session of chemo.

here's to taking things lightly, lovely, & smiling, the whole way through..

to live , will be an awfully big adventure ;

unknown legend

she grew up in a small town
never put her roots down
daddy always kept movin', so she did too

she

her long blonde hair flying in the wind
she's been runnin' half her life


lookin' for a magic kiss
she gets the faraway look in her eyes


the air she breathes

{words from the legend himself, neil young}

 

oh yeah, and she sings me lullabies; check them out here

"i'm learning about the planets right now. in my spare time", she says ;

in her spare time, i giggle. when she's not running multiple businesses, inspiring thousands of women, teaching/practicing yoga, connecting with loved ones around the world, creating goals, or nurturing her baby to be... you know, when she's not doing all that stuff.

here's to a momma changing the world one moon cycle after the other ,
