We had a great time shooting Kiera on location at Lavish night club. She brought both sass and smiles to her session, some of which you can see below.

What does ‘dyke’ look like to you?
I’m the lovechild of Janis Joplin and Coco Chanel. I don’t fit into other people’s pigeonholes and I will bite and scratch my way out of them if need be.
Being high femme means my makeup is often warpaint; looking stereotypically straight can be dangerous.
Dyke is a frilly apron and combats boots on Monday, a little black dress and gravity-defying heels on Tuesday,
and my ex’s comfiest pair of sweatpants on Wednesday. Dyke looks like the intense eye-contact between two women seeing each
other for the first time and recognizing a mutual attraction. It’s a sense of freedom because I am choosing to break out of
the picket fenced box society wants to put me in, though being an anomaly can be quite lonely. Dyke to me, is me.
