“We don’t drown by falling in the water;

you drown by staying there.”

-Edwin Louis Cole

This is the very last installment of our 4 part editorial series title, “WITHIN.”  We called this mini collection, “sink.” because it’s a great metaphor for how some of our emotions and thoughts can overwhelm us; and can make us feel like we are drowning and helpless when in reality we can take control.

“fear.” part 3 of “WITHIN.” series by BEMOREMEDIA.

0524_BEMOREMEDIA_STUDIO60_PART1_2015_02_17_FINAL_COLOR_FINAL_COLOR_BLOGS“Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.”

-Michael Jordan

This is the 3rd mini collection of photos from our, “WITHIN.” series.  A series that explores our darker inner emotions.. sometimes emotions and thoughts that we can find difficult to discuss with even the closest of friends and families.  We chose the title, “fear.” because now a days we can sometimes feel limited in the things we can accomplish because of the color of our skin, gender, race, social status, sexual orientation, etc..  This can hinder us from reaching our full potential.  Society can create illusions that can hold us back;  these are the things that we should not let change us or fear who we are inside.

“bind.” (part of “WITHIN.” series by BeMoreMEdia)

“We are not trapped by our thoughts.

What we generally do, however, is create thoughts that trap us.”

– Joshua David Stone

This past summer, we decided to do another editorial series.  This time, we wanted a darker, edgier, and more emotional look.  We decided to do a series called “WITHIN.” and these pictures are a part of a mini collection that make up the series.

This mini collection is called, “bind.” because we are often trapped within ourselves by emotions that we sometimes create;  and those can be the toughest kind of binds to break away from.

Society dictates what is right and wrong and can often limit us on what we want to say, feel or do.

Goonies never say die!!!!!!!! ( Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park Oregon )

Cannon Beach

If you grew up in the 80’s I know you’ve seen the movie ” Goonies “.  That was one of my favorite movies of all time. I was 8 yrs old when I saw it and I wanted to be one of the Goonies.  Adventure, romance, action and cute Sean Astin.  I loved that movie.  The reason we came to Cannon Beach was because of that movie.  This beach was in the intro scene and ever since then I have always wanted to visit this place.  We had a week off last march and we did a road trip from LA to Oregon. Our last stop of our Pacific Coast road trip was this gorgeous beach.

Sleeping Beauty.. Princess Aurora by TravelAnneStyle and BeMoreMedia

Sleeping Beauty

Princess Aurora was born to King Stefan and Queen Leah.  This is the girl that was cursed by Maleficent on her Christening Day.  On her 16th birthday she would prick her finger from a spindle and would die but was saved by one of the fairies and instead would sleep for all eternity until she is awakened by true love’s kiss.  I loved that Elle Fanning was chosen to play her in the movie Maleficent opposite Angelina Jolie.

For our last Princess  of our Disney inspired editorial we chose Ms. Sarah Blades to be Aurora.  She is an amazing ballerina and it was such a surprise that she was actually from Maryland.  We wanted someone to have the same look as Elle Fanning; sweet, innocent and youthful and Sarah was perfect.

” Ursula ” by BeMoreMedia and TravelAnneStyle

The-little-mermaid-ursula

Ursula is a part human / part octopus sea witch that, “helps,” the unfortunate merfolk achieve their goals, with her motives at the forefront.  She is Disney’s famous villain that made a deal with  Ariel; ( The Little Mermaid ) she agreed to turn her  into a human for three days.  If Ariel can receive the, “kiss of true love,” from Prince Eric before sunset on the third day, her transformation will be permanent. However, if Ariel fails, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula forever. But there’s always a price, and in this case, Ariel will have to pay Ursula with her voice to gain her human legs.

As part of the beauty editorial series we have planned for this summer we wanted to share the second villain, Ursula.  For this photo-shoot we worked with one of the most talented and sought after dancers in LA, Ms. Carlena Britch.  She is an artist of many talents; from dance/choreography,  make up, hair, style, and nail art; she has a TON going for her!
