Although I’m based in Central Florida, I find it very difficult to find fun energetic models to work with it being so saturated with diversity; in its people, art, fashion, and photography. So it was very difficult to choose which direction I wanted to go with the shoot. It was funny how I posted a casting about a different concept board I wanted to do and a fellow local photographer referred her friend.
I wanted to shoot something new and within minutest Kathleen inboxed me on Facebook stating that she is just starting her brand, I was hesitant, however, I’ve learnt to give everyone a chance in this industry. We exchanged a few messages and a few days letter I showed her a concept board and she shot me images of the outfits and I immediately called up my friend Raelynn and told her “we are shooting in two weeks” she laughed and said Okay. Raeylnn is an upcoming teenage model who has been so much fun to work with.
I loved Raelynn's look from the first time she followed me on instagram and I introduced her to a few workshops in the area such as the Orlando Meet & Greet (OMG). It was actually the second time I would be shooting her, after a text shoot. This would have been the third shoot we’ve actually done and was over joyed with the product.
