SX-70 Black and White shot on SX-70 Alpha 1
It’s Polaroid week and because I always miss these things and never celebrate them… I’m getting on top of it. From Oct. 20-25 I’ll be posting one of my favorite Polaroid images that I haven’t posted before. In looking at what I’ve selected to share it actually turned out to be a fairly accurate representation of what it is I like to shoot.
I’m not what I would call a great Polaroid shooter, certainly not like some of my favorites @brunoroids or @thatshelbiedimond. Look back through my childhood photo albums and even into the late 90′s many, many images are presented in beautiful 600 color film. Pictures taken not for their novelty, they are the only representations of specific moments from my life. That carried through into my own Polaroid style… unconsciously I used the medium to record a moment to to express artistically. That began to change a year ago when I finally acquired my SX-70 alpha 1 in classic chrome and tan brown leather. This shot of Dylan is a significant achievement for myself because; 1. it is pretty tight (at least not full body) and 2. that even without using flash I somehow managed to guess right on the on the exposure compensation wheel so that the lights were not blown out, and the darks were not completely black. Non Polaroid related, this shot is so special because not in 100 shoots could I have achieved this look with the shadows, mood, and the amazing Dylan. .

➡ Personal Training: I'm happy to say that I'm OFFICIALLY an ACE Certified PT 😁 It was humbling to realize through this process that being a good trainer/coach is admitting what you don't know & constantly seeking knowledge to make you better for the sake of your clients. On that note...here's what I'm working on:
☑ A 3-4 month training program, designed to help people who don't know how to train in a gym setting or who don't know how to structure a program. It will help you increase strength, muscle, and overall fitness, and be more goal-oriented. It will TEACH you how to work out and personalize a program to fit YOU, so you don't have to be dependent on it forever, and you'll have access to me for help.
☑ Intake forms for people who are looking for a more one-on-one, personalized coaching/training experience. Maybe you have specific athletic goals, work better with a coach, or just want to have more focused goals and some guidance.
• • •
➡ Future posts are coming as I continue to finalize both of these, detailing the one-time training plan and coaching options.
➡ If you're interested in either, please email/DM me to be added to a waiting list and be the first brought on as a client as soon as everything is finalized.
➡ I'm doing this because I love it, and because I believe people deserve accessible knowledge & training in fitness, not because I need the money - a very lucky & privileged position to be in. So on top of it being hella cheap, the prices will also be sliding scale. Even if you don't think it's in your budget, but you're interested, definitely DM/email me, because I'm sure we'll find a way to make it work for you.
➡ As always, if you want in-person training but don't live in the DFW area here in Texas, I know a ton of highly qualified and very experienced trainers, coaches, and gyms around the country that are LGBTQ-friendly or focused, weight-neutral, and with other qualifications (trauma-informed, etc.) I'm happy to refer you to any of them!! 🌈

El poema, el que anhelo,
al que aspiro,
es el que pueda leerse en voz alta sin que nada se oiga.
Es ese imposible el que comienza cada vez,
Es desde esa quimera Que escribo y borro. -Hugo Mujica Antología poética
Had an exuberant day at the park seeing all the beauties of this colourful planet and enjoying the crisp smell of autumn , I climbed trees , went on the swing , made leaf aliens , slid down the slide and blended in amongst the bushes 👽💗🍂 BUT I DID NOT LIKE THE TINY YET TERRIFYING LAND AND AIR INSECTS , ATTRACTED TO MY NEON HUE , GET IN MY EYES AND TICKLE MY FLANGLIES - I do not like earth creatures ... 🦟🐜🐞🐛
... as we wonder
through the emptiness
that's in our heads.

I was obviously feeling myself a few weeks ago.
So this is a reminder to me that even though I feel a detachment from being physically attractive because I’m constantly being overexposed to this idea that trans bodies are tolerated and trans people are not seen as sexually desirable and if they are they are fetishised - that I am beautiful and my bodies past, present and future do not equate to me being desirable. I find it pretty difficult to think of myself as someone, someone would want to be with be that physically, emotionally or both (even though I have a partner that constantly reassures me) because of a history of basing my self worth on sexual encounters. I am not just my physical appearance and I am attractive not just when someone else thinks so. So I’m going to own it through this past moment of self acceptance. For me and not for anyone else. I guess you could say I’m working through some things.

So tremendously lovely to facilitate learning and healing and engaging in play with a bunch of queer and trans bbs and my found family at Models of Pride. My heart was overflowing at seeing the people that inspire me do it so bravely and gracefully for a bunch of tenderest queer kids. I’m so proud of my sister @ponysweat and @eternallyhungry I almost lost it 😿 a few times watching them be so courageous and vulnerable and express their brilliant selves. It was such a gift to see @candohando step in to charisma loaded rock camp youth leader mode. It’s among the most genuinely joyful things I’ve experienced, as u can tell from my face here. I also took direct moments to check in with myself and be present and I noticed how confident I felt and how easily I was accessing that power. For those that know me and what I’ve struggled with... it was a quite a thing to realize and I’m proud of what I’ve been able to develop for myself. PRIDE. For myself. Confidence shed of arrogance. It was a profound healing experience to hold space for these kids, knowing what it would have been like for a little freak like me to have found access to these spaces when I was a baby queer kitten. Thank you so much @currycheeks for generously and sweetly lending your supplies to the zine workshop, the kids lit up to utilize those tools. And thank you to my love @lolankford for creating these spaces for youth, for all the ways you help me, and inviting me in to your heart and this space to run these life changing workshops. ❤️ #queer#trans#nonbinary#intersex#femme#modelsofpride
