I have been following the work of this beautiful and incredibly talented woman for a few years, and dreaming of photographing her since I first saw her portraits at an art exhibit. This spring we finally had a chance to create together and it was wonderful. What I learned from her, to my surprise, is that each shoot is a journey for her as much as it is for the photographer. Her natural elegance and artful posing was a treat to photograph. I saw how vulnerable and personal she is, how human and real, true to herself she was during our shoot. Miss J had told me many stories that were the foundation of our photographic journey together and the results are more stunning that I could ever imagine. Here are a few photographs from our first session, more will be displayed in the exhibit in October 2015.
I am filled with gratitude for this chance to work together and to witness the elegance and courage of this gorgeous woman.
