Ask me anything   My name's Rebecca Tillett and I love to design things and shoot things. I also love to clean and organize and shop and decorate and watch movies that make me cry. Time is an unparalleled commodity to me which makes it hard to accept that it's always slipping away. This is reflected in many of my photos. It's the only way I know how to capture it. I've been romantically loved and have loved unconditionally for almost 14 years. I feel like I've won some kind of lottery. I think my life was hard in the beginning simply so I'd fully appreciate what it is now.

This tumblr is a mix of my own work and the work and creations of others that inspire me. Credit to the artist and/or the original blogger will be given when available.

God Love You

God love you and love the piercing
Ache to belong to you, your past,
Your sins, your loves in contrast
To miss you, to need you, to want you
To consume you where you stand
Your inamorata in a vast wasteland
Every last drop of boundless brine
God is giving me a sign
To invite you to plunge inside me
To engulf you, envelop your desires
To succumb to your every whim
God love the piercing ache to belong to you,
With you, to feel you in my bones,
Until you’re seeping through my pores
I’m yours.
God love the you that fills the space
The pockets of bleak inhabiting me
The way I melt when I see your face
To glances toward you longingly
God love you and the stabbing ache
To belong to you, to be everything you
Need. To yearn for you, to dream of you,
To bleed, proceed, to plead. Godspeed.

Broken Home 
http://rebeccatillett.com/broken-home/

"…my Broken Home series is a picture of what the owner might look like if they were still there and had knowingly let the house crumble in front of them. They, too, might be falling apart…trying to pick up the pieces, trying to stay together and whole, just as the house is struggling to do."

It’s paradise. It’s milk and honey.It’s dolllars and cash. It’s all just money.It’s sex and lust. It’s all a must.It’s always fashionable. It’s always sunny.
Adele Arcadia, her skin is tingling..and all her suitors are smoking. They’re mingling.
It’s paradise. It’s fucks and bones.it’s sweet and shiny and pretty unknowns.
(I used to write something to accompany each of my series’…it kills me that I stopped doing this years ago. The photo was from my shoot earlier this month. The poem was written about 8 years ago.)

Every great once in a while, my camera and I collide with a model whose confidence and fearlessness know no apparent bounds, someone who isn’t afraid to look silly or stupid or even ridiculous on the gamble that we’ll create a great shot. I've had the pleasure of photographing several amazing women with these bold qualities -and the added fortune of calling them my friends in most cases- in the last 12 years I've pursued this passion of mine. And Edie is one of them.I’m not quite sure why but there’s something I truly love about this image. The pose and the expression on her face (despite the half-baked shiny silver shorts and hot pink heels) that make me stop and question the story this is telling, if any. Or it could just be me…If there’s anything I’ve learned over the years it’s that everyone sees something different in my photos and I think that’s awesome.
