meredithadelaide I can't believe it's August! Today is my year anniversary of moving to New York - it feels like time sped and slowed and warped and somehow, here I am posting a half naked photo of myself from when I was hiding in the bathroom from my roommate who came home as I was trying to shoot a full body editorial in the kitchen. Alas. New York is what you make it and I'm all "I'll take when I can get." May this next year rock

Reminder: I'm selling prints! Link in profile!

Setting up my print shop - photos that I've not posted on @instagram and a lot that I have. I'll be adding more as I have free time. Everything is the same size, and same price! 10 of each.

meredithadelaide When I snuck into my friend @niravphotography's room and speed shot some self portraits so I could surprise him a month later with a print. If you hire me and you leave me alone in a place with little spaces...watch out!

meredithadelaide This week I'll be posting over at @tpj for an #igtakeover - going through the archives, talking a little further about my experience as I've been changing through homes, careers, and my twenty-something's.

As always, everything is open for discussion either here or there - I hope you join me!

meredithadelaide I'm entering this image into a contest that could get me back to the west coast to work with two artists who I consider to be good people and friends. At first I thought "this is a really selfish thing to do, since you know them." However, since I left Portland almost exactly a year ago (good golly), my perception of creating (and the west) has changed a bit.. I feel like my sense of self and intentions have been rising to the surface of the shallow resources I have here, and now I'm at a point where I want to grow further in my art. Through my images I'm sure it's easy to see where I need help. So even though @parkerfitzhenry and @ryanmuirhead and I have created together before, I want to re-enter their world over that weekend from this different perspective. And, I must admit, I certainly need the comfort of the west coast soon before I explode. It has been too long.

meredithadelaide You guys. I love shooting. I love working. But now I'm remembering how lonely it gets doing it myself all the time and I only play the same playlist over and over again so then I start getting tired of hanging out with me. So, a soft call for my followers: BOOKING NYC 8/2-8/12. Paid shoots take priority, but don't hesitate to contact! Email only please! "Behind" the scenes (see what I did there) of my #selfportrait shoot with one of my dream designers @hopelesslingerie at the amazing studio @brooklyngrain 2w

meredithadelaide Another example of #selfportraits and outside interpretations/studies! 2w

meredithadelaide Had my aura photographed yesterday. With my hands on sensors that analyze my energy, my vibrational frequencies are paired with color frequencies and is then layered over my portrait, like a personalized filter. They're ten-second exposures, and then @radianthuman_ talks through the meaning of our colors.

Photo left is my internal energy, photo right is my external self, and above me represents my state of mind.

What a fascinating project.

meredithadelaide Sometimes I shoot exclusive self portraits for individual artists to use, and sometimes I go to a studio to pose for reference - here are examples of both - works in progress from @katezambrano and @bradrkunkle

If you're an artist and interested in having me for either, please be in touch!

meredithadelaide up and over ...with a little help from loved ones, even if there's only one or two. Thanks to mine for catching this location while I was driving, and for holding my chin up.

meredithadelaide temporary defense mechanism ...and then, days later, I see what I've done and I understand. Then I dig. Then I create. Then I'm back to my norm. Like a constant cycle where I always end up different than before even though I just repeated myself.

meredithadelaide absorbed ...when I mentioned I've been mean to myself I was referring to my inner dialogue when it turns to mental anguish. I get stressed when I'm anxious, I get anxious when I don't get enough time to myself, I don't get enough time to myself when I'm focusing on trying to make everyone else comfortable whether they ask for it or not because I'm avoiding my own problems, and I do all that when I'm insecure, and I get insecure from 1) feeling lost/like I can't be included 2) having a lack of communication 3) not working on my own voice/visions, and thus a stressful lack of trust in myself and others, which is a pillar for all things good.

meredithadelaide borrowed light ...After 4 1/2 hours of driving and 45 minutes of hot spring time, I don't think I could've made it back without this sunset. It got brighter and brighter the more I stopped to shoot (which, for safety reasons, wasn't a lot). Four days certainly wasn't enough in this country!

meredithadelaide what I've trouble with ...lately anyway, is keeping my chin up, relaxing, and standing up to myself. I can be so mean to me sometimes I could slap me.

In other news, I'm back in the home country which is appreciated, but the outsider's perspective is lingering in me. Neither good nor bad, but definitely trippy.
