From Hawaii with Love

From the Founder
One of the unexpected joys of running an online business has been the discovery of what I call “Internet friends,” other women that I meet online and develop some connection or sense of kinship with (I also may peep their daily lives via Instagram Stories). Taylor (who I’m lucky to have met in IRL) is one of those people. I appreciate the unselfconscious sense of ease and joy captured in her photos of other women. I’m so excited to share this new photo series & Q&A from Taylor with the lot of you.

My biggest inspirations are the life-forces of women in my life and the natural world. My best friends. Strangers I admire. My mom. My sister. The ocean. Flowers. Ferns!

What excites me the most is how I feel like I’m in a place where anything is possible. I’ve stopped telling myself I need to “choose” between things that make me happy, and instead I’ve decided I’m just going to do it all (or attempt to, at least!) Feeling infinite, and full of possibility is thrilling, scary and definitely my favorite part of being 20.

With my work I hope to convey feeling. Strength and power. Vulnerability and intimacy too. Bringing these two aspects together is something I am always trying to work at. I hope my work might challenge ways in which we view bodies, particularly those of female-identifying folks. I am trying to challenge the way in which bodies can be inhabited: as nude, as free, as strong, as unbounded.
