It is always a good idea for any model meeting a new photographer to bring someone with you (as long as your escort behaves well and doesn’t hinder the shoot). It usually adds a level of comfort for both parties- the model knows there is a friendly face near by, and the photographer knows their model will be more at ease during the shoot. I have tagged along to a few of Anerael’s shoots, and vice versa. On occasion, the photographer will agree to work with both of us during the same shoot, which is always a good time because we can occasionally sneak a few pictures in together, and both make excellent use of time- while one is shooting, the other is getting ready, and we switch off so there isn’t a lot of waiting for anyone. (Tag-Team for the win!)
So when she let me know about the photographer she was going to be working with, and if I wanted to do a few shots as well, I was ecstatic to tag along!
This shoot was with Adam Avid Photography and Loredana, who styles and creates amazing wardrobe/ accessories for the shoots. They were a fantastic team and I had a blast working with them both. I immediately felt at ease with both of them and like I already knew them.
Our first round of shooting was for Slowdown Clothing. I love the bold colors and imagery on their clothing, especially in the shirt I was wearing. I especially enjoyed this outfit because I haven’t done a lot of street style shoots, so it was a great chance to try something new.
For the second look, I had a brown strapless dress, bought for a previous shoot I had yet to wear. Loredana did an amazing job of pulling pieces together to amp it up, including a beautiful headpiece that she made, that went perfectly with the entire look. I would also like to point out, I have no idea how she styled my hair the way she did, but it looked gorgeous! And the color was incredible in the sunlight. I’m glad that I decided to wear my colored contacts for this look. The colors all contrasted beautifully. I absolutely loved how these images came out and how "royal" I felt.
A bonus for the day, it wasn’t as cold out as it had been the last few weeks, so there was only minimal shivering for everyone involved!
Maybe during our next shoot the wind chill won’t be quite as prevalent, but even if it is, after seeing what we can create together, the weather can just try to bring it on!
