In my habit of always seeking the “unknown”, the different and the not so popular, I really did not gravitate toward her as much as everyone else. But one thing was certain, the cameras loved her.
Most shoots last up to a couple hours, and I tend to limit myself to a couple rolls of film. But our session went on forever. And as the champagne flowed and the abundance of stinky cheese seemed unchallenged, time passed and I kept reloading my cameras. It is often said that you can shoot 300 frames and only a handful are workable. Well, we shot more than 300 frames, and I could have shot more. The most enjoyable part of the entire session was that it was fun, very informal, as much as we had planned to get some “Vogueish” shots where the “resting bitch face” is usually the go to. I liked how she was able to show vulnerability yet own it. It was hilarious watching the switch from sarcastic loud mouth to completely sexy and alluring.
