I had a special opportunity to shoot a future model for America's Next Top Model! Her name is Mariah, young, beautiful, tall and lots of potential. At first she was hesitant to pose and was not motivated to be instructed, but as the shoot went on she started to loosen up and presented her own fashionable style. Sometimes you just have to let them be themselves to bring out the best photographs out of them. As Tyra Banks would say, "Mariah, you're still in the running to be America's Next Top Model. Congratulations!"
And of course my favorite shot of the day...
Crystal was a joy to work with. Her shots and smiles came out naturally which made the images even more special. It also helps to have her friends around to accompany her and make her laugh, although she can easily laugh at anything. She immediately asked if I could do her Senior photos when she saw the Senior photos of her best friend Arielle. I hope to do more of these next year because these Senior kids are fun to work with.
