One of the things that I enjoy most about being a photographer is the impact that you have on others. Not just models but other professionals that you come in contact with. Sometimes we need that extra push, that motivation or those words of encouragement to reignite that creative light that life sometimes tries and bury deep within us. Sometimes we loose sight of the dreams that we are chasing.
Quick story - Gia Peebles is a great hair stylist and her resume runs for days. We have now worked together now on a handful of projects and each time we have produced some amazing images. This time was no different. However, Gia decided that instead of bringing on a makeup artist that she would do the makeup herself. Stating that before becoming a hair stylist, makeup was her first love. I was excited to see her stepping outside of her comfort zone and challenge herself for this project. Although she is extremely talented and often asked for my insight throughout the process, I sat back and watched her work and the end result speaks for itself. Way to go GIA!!
Our model for this project was Lindsey. Simply stated...Lindsey was awesome!
