Boise, Idaho-based artist/photographer Barry Barnes and model Ash Haze teamed up for today’s exclusive NAKID feature editorial titled, ‘The Nutcracker‘.

These shots are from the second time Barry worked with California model, Ash Haze. They had picked a few props from their studio and sent Ash some sketches of what they had in mind, in front of the camera she, of course, made it better. Since the petticoat Barry had was too small for her, it reminded everyone of the look of a tutu.

“That along with the confident attitude Ash conveyed in the shots had me referring to the set as “The Nutcracker””
