I took part in a shoot today that was perfect on multiple levels. I adore being about to express myself creatively through my modeling. It is an honor to attempt the sacred role of Muse, to attempt to embody the artisitic vision of another human being. This was a boudoir shoot for Aimee Cambpell Photography. The artist really wanted to do an outdoor boudoir shoot and I was very excited to be a part of it. Although the artist’s intention was to practice her craft in natural light, and hone the skills necessary for that type of shot, There were moments where I felt I had the opportunity to embody prayer. True expression of natural wonder and gratitude for my body and the spirits and gifts around me. This is sort of a strange idea to try to express but I felt connected through the artist’s vision to the land, the dear spirits and the gods.
Yes it was work, by there was also an element, a flavor of worship and recognition of blessings that I felt through the shoot. I came home and offered my crown to my Goddesses with this prayer. I felt they saw a modern prayer and world thru my eyes if only for the briefest moment.
I offer this wreath, this kiss of nature’s beauty to my beloveds Epona, Diana, and Brighid. Hail to you Goddesses of my heart and home. In gratitude I place these roses. Gratitude for inspiration for today’s art, for new learning experiences, and for good partners. Thank you for the beauty and grace ( and silliness) I was allowed to embody today.
