Trailer Trash Studio was born in 2003 in a warehouse in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The name, Trailer Trash Studio, was given to my photography studio by my friends. So named because my husband and I stored our beautifully restored 1961 Airstream Globetrotter travel trailer in the front of the warehouse. The trailer was the first thing you saw when you walked in the door.
Trailer Trash Studio greeting cards grew out of my love of people, photography, costumes, and trailers. Each photo-shoot is the culmination of 40 years of collecting costumes and my relationships with the models. During a photo-shoot something magical occurs. We never know for sure just what or who will show up... but when all the right ingredients combine a new character is born! I am the lucky person who gets to capture those special moments.
I created the greeting cards to share those moments. I believe each character is a part of all of us: a piece of our collective personality. I create and share these cards with the belief that if we could take ourselves a little less seriously and laugh at ourselves the world would become a better place.
My models are not professional models. They are my friends and family. They are just regular people having a good time, wearing costumes that I have collected. Can you find them on the site?
