“This series is very dear to our souls, as Katlin and I shot throughout her home. That is Katlin’s own bed, where she cuddles with my husband and her two adorable kitties. Those are the tomatoes she bought to cook with dinner that eve. We wanted the images to have a real feeling for our readers to connect too. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. ”

“My name is Katlin Tucker and I am an independent traveling model. I have been in long admiration of the artistic process. Majoring in Art History, I have a full understanding of the creative energy needed for a successful execution of an idea. As a model, I feel honored to be a part of these ideas. Modeling, for me, is much more than pretty pictures, it’s about bringing a sense of realism into each visual form, truly connecting with the ideal character.”

“My name is Darius Ollison. My journey in photography started back in college. I remember I would obsess over photographs on flickr for hours on end before I even picked up a camera. The sunsets were so beautiful in the small town where my college was and I would always try to take photos with my cell phone. They never quite came out how I wanted so I eventually got a DSLR the summer after my junior year.
Photographing anything and just trying to get better quickly became an obsession. After about three years I decided to focus on portrait work. I was influenced heavily by great photographers like Stefan Beutler and Andre Josselin. The thing that always keeps me coming back to portrait photography is the interaction between model and photographer.
Every now and then you work with a model who just understands your artwork and what you are pursuing. The two of you just vibe on a deep level so much so that your ideas begin to mesh during the shoot. Eventually, your ideas are her ideas as if she is an extension of your mind. The movements you want her to make she makes as if she is an extension of your body. I love that moment because it’s so real, so raw and so honest.
Interactions like that don’t happen often. To take a look at the inside of a person and get a glimpse of their soul and to share yours in the process is one of the most beautiful experiences.”
