So, true story...
This beautiful woman contacted me via Instagram to setup a fashion/modeling session. Looking at her feed and her followers, I thought it was a scam. Here is this awesome person who has done some amazing work with insanely talented photographers, all over the place, and she wants to work with me? It couldn't be true. I saw we had a mutual friend in common so I did ask if my friend knew her and she did. Turns out it was totally legit and she really did want to work with me while on a trip back to her old Alum, Penn State. I was sooooo excited (once I knew it wasn't a scam LOL) and we got to planning the perfect outfit for her to model.
We spent the morning shooting at the Arboretum which I had never, previously been to. It was GORGEOUS and a photographer's dream. Even though we were competing with sweltering heat and bright, direct sun, I think we captured a lot of beautiful images to enhance our portfolios. Annette was an out of this world model, knocking out poses and angles left and right. We captured so many photos! It was one of my favorite fashion/modeling shoots to date. It was also refreshing to work and talk with someone who is familiar with industry and hear about her experiences working with a number of photographers.
I loved this session Annette, and sincerely hope I get the opportunity to shoot with her again! Maybe I'll even get to tag along sometime to one of the music fests she attends! That would be a dream come true!
Go give her a follow on Instagram: @Angel.Annette
