photos by Darcy Rogers

It's funny how many wonderful people I have met through the internet, sometimes I forget that some of my closest friends and favorite collaborators are ones that I first communicated with via Myspace, or Friendster, or blog comments. Darcy Rogers and I met via the internet years ago and we have managed to meet up for a photo shoot a few times each year. We both hail from Northern California but are enjoying life on the East Coast (crazy winters and all). It was especially fun to collaborate on a shoot this time around because I am just settling into my new apartment (shared with my boyfriend of almost two years) and it was the perfect opportunity to document the process. Darcy observed that wherever I live I tend to pick a spot with a lot of natural light flooding in, and although I had never actively thought about this, she is completely right. I still have some work to do before I feel like this apartment is "done," but I love that Darcy was able to capture things as they are right now, natural light and all.
