This is Na'ama~ by Micah Mackenzie

 Fierce and courageous in life. I have the privilege to learn and grow with Na'ama in my studio and in beautiful settings around these sacred lands. She reminds me of an ancient queen in her youth. She is full of fire and the sun covers its eyes to gaze apon her. I can sense all the strong women and courageous warriors that have come before her when theragraphy* is happening. 

She radiates love and passion. When we first started hanging out it was because our energy knew each other before we said a word. I am so thankful for her and I look forward to seeing where she will go. Na'ama is off to NY soon to do what I have already seen she will do~She will travel the world many times over.

She was born in Goa, India. Her father, Alon, is Moroccan Israeli and her mother's name is Pamela, she is American. 

Na'ama is a citizenship of Israel and the US.

I'm thankful she trusts me and we can create anything we set out to create.

Untouched. Nude series* by Micah Mackenzie

 I love keeping it simple.

 I love keeping it simple.

 A classic accessory for a woman is nothing~

I love transformations in a session! It’s such an integral part of what I do.

Simple = simply gorgeous.

The lines on her feet. Some of my favorite lines on a woman.

 I’ve been loving this lighting set-up lately! It’s gorgeous and super easy to do.

I wanted to create moody, flattering, dramatic and I think we accomplished that.

Lucca has the most infectious enthusiasm. About whatever she happens to be doing at the moment. She’s good energy all the time. 

Thank You Lucca for allowing me to take your portrait. Many Blessings to you!

A friend travels from Tokyo. by Micah Mackenzie

My eyes always want to take it all in at once. This is not possible so I am thankful for my camera that allows me to see the richness of life. I can see the future and the past in a lot of my works.

Recently on a shoot with a friend* that should've been a friend way before now. We were not so much lost but wandering in the creative state just creating. Andy Faulk* was in town from Tokyo Japan on assignment for Manfrotto ask if I wanted to go along. I have wanting to meet this gentleman since he left here about 6 or 7 years ago to go to Seoul Korea. So when he asked I jumped at the chance.  


I was shooting BTS shoots and capturing portraits at a different angle than I usually do. It was what my mind needed at that time. It's truly refreshing to see something new you have seen over and over. Like a long lost love* Being a 2nd eye allowed me to really relax and just have fun.

It was nice going out with these two beautiful beings and just playing. So often we forget to play, but not I. Being a talented photographer and  the gorgeous muse that she is Casey was exactly what I needed that day. Inspiration is constantly surrounding us. It's right in front of you daily. I choose to see this magical world where everything is possible.

Hugs and High Fives for Life!
