“It’s Forrest Gump RelI bated” was originally inspired by Kesha back in 2010/2011. However, one photo in this shoot stood out from the rest to me. It reminds me of a specific character from a popular movie. “Jenny” the love of Forrest Gump’s life. For some reason after seeing the photos the name never shook. Before we get the THE photo (or photos since there’s a good FIVE of them that make the Forest thing real), here are some other photos from the shoot.
Taken in Riverside, CA.

So the first part of the shoot isn’t really related so you’re probably looking at confused like you have no idea what I’m talking about. Especially since the outfit isn’t really VINTAGE and comes no where near the 1970’s! It was originally inspired by KESHA back when she wore feathers non-stop in 2010. After seeing the LAST part of the shoot for some reason I couldn’t stop thinking it reminded me of Forest Gump.
Let’s start at the beginning of the shoot!
So, you might recognize some of these photos because I have posted them before. HOWEVER, I found the DISC with BOTH outfits on it and HQ resolution so I nipped my favs and here they are! (Well there’s TOO many so they’re all in the GALLERY
) these are SOME of my favs! Check out the entire shoot before you leave!
The water was very green and dirty. It’s used for fishing not swimming!
Back in 2010-2012 I was very obsessed with feathers. This feather was from the ground (not the best idea) LOL I DID LOVE all the twisted tree vines and the photos came out good very lifestyle editorial I think.
My style was all over the place during those years! I was into fashion but knew nothing about it at the time 😛 I would wear JEANS AND T-SHIRTS TO RED CARPET EVENTS! It’s weird to look at a timeline of my style. It’s changed so much. I’m really proud!
Then we found a little spot that looked like a beach OASIS type deal! Or I think so anyway lol
Here is an up close shot of the jewelry pieces. They are handmade or vintage pieces that I got from antique stores or thift stores or designer pieces. The feather in my hair is obviously my clothing line I’m A Jerk Industries
from way back when.
NOW! We’ve reached the last section(s) of the photoshoot. The part that begins to remind me of the character JENNY from Forest Gump!
PART ONE – The Bus Stop / “PEACE” from War by the Army Tank
The entire movie revolves around a bus stop so I don’t really need to explain that one…
Smiling isn’t probably the BEST way to act when protesting for PEACE against WAR but…
PART TWO – Fishing. Guess it doesn’t really have anything to do with the movie, but I love how they’re silhouettes and not images of me.
FINAL PART – LEAVING/WALKING AWAY
this is the PART that I looked at the photos and said “It’s Forest Gump related…” I’m not sure why they remind me so much of her walking away but they do…
This last photo is my ALL TIME FAVORITE from the entire set… I have no idea why, I just like my facial expression mixed with my hair, the outfit and the location. It’s an “in action” shot when I turned around.. REMEMBER this isn’t ALL of the photos!
