New cover with muse @maya_henry . Recently I’ve had so many people congratulate me on the work I’ve been sharing on social media which has been flattering and validating. But it has also left me uneasy and reminded me of a quote I read a year ago - “It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them but you would be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides” - What I choose to share on instagram is a facade of curated success. It doesn’t reflect the weeks where i’m wondering when am I going to book my next job. 90% of the time I feel like i’m treading water and I think it’s important to acknowledge this. Especially for other artists who may be struggling or who look at my work and only see the success.
Special print cover of @vmagazine with @shawnmendes and @camila_cabello. When I was 8 years old I saw an image of Princess Diana that had been shot by Mario Testino. It was an image that stayed with me my entire life. It was also Mario Testino who shot the very first cover of @vmagazine in 1999 and now in 2019 to shoot the very same cover is a dream realized. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for this opportunity. ❤️
I am incredibly proud to share my latest cover. It was a dream to shoot this with @shawnmendes and @camila_cabello. I cannot thank Stephen Gan and the entire @vmagazine team enough for believing in me. I am in awe of the talented creatives that contribute to each issue and it’s humbling to see my work alongside an anthology of covers that have all been shot by my idols. ❤️
So proud to share our S/S 19 cover with @maisie_williams! Issue 3 available for pre-order now! Shot by ME!
My mom sent me this today. I love her so much. ❤️
I read a quote today that read: “Each year that you gain comfort in your own flesh, your flesh is seen as worth less”. Full disclosure this photograph has been completely retouched and edited beyond recognition. It was lit impeccably and selected from over a dozen options. So I know I have a long way to go in terms of self acceptance. But as I stand on the precipice of 30 what I know for sure is that i’m incredibly proud of how far I have already come in the pursuit of feeling comfortable in my own skin, confident in my talent, and knowing my self worth. 30 is old enough to look back and young enough to look forward. I’m so excited for the next chapter. Happy Birthday to myself 😜

Happy Birthday to my best friend @nicolaannepeltz. I love you so much and I love this pic. I can’t believe you are 24 and I can’t believe this was our 9th year spending new years together. SO many memories. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

You attract what you are not what you want. If you want great than be great :)

It is rare but there are souls so full of beauty that if overflows into their skin. They are equally beautiful inside and out. @therealtonheukels
A muse can be a mirror: a reflection of an artist’s desires, anxieties, dreams and needs. @therealtonheukels
Social media is a dangerous place to seek affirmation, acceptance, identity, and security. 📱
