Escorts and Photo Shoots
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 shouldn’t be an issue. It usually adds a level of comfort for both parties as well. The model knows there is a friendly face nearby, and the photographer knows their model will be more at ease during the shoot.
I’ve been to a few of my friend’s shoots, and vice versa. On occasion, the photographer will agree to work with both of us during the same shoot. It’s always a good time because we can sneak a few pictures in together, and both make excellent use of our time. While one is shooting, the other is getting ready, and we switch off so there isn’t a lot of waiting for anyone.
So when she asked if I’d like to join her shoot, I was more than happy to tag along. Our shoot was with Adam Avid Photography and his wife Lory, who styles the shoots. They were a fantastic team and we had a blast working with them both.
Our first look was for Slowdown Clothing. I love the bold colors and imagery on their clothing, especially the shirt I was wearing. Because I haven’t done a lot of street style shoots, it was the perfect 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. Lory did an amazing job pulling pieces together to amp it up. She helped style my outfit and added in a headpiece that she made. While I originally did my own makeup, hair, I was ecstatic to have Lory readjust the style. It looked 100 times better after she wrapped my hair around her handmade crown. My newly dyed hair seemed to glow in contrast to the dark headdress.
I absolutely loved how these images came out and how “royal” I felt. But never too royal to don a sock monkey hat for the drive home!
