this shoot turned out better than i could have ever imagined.
i had been talking to the model, manda lee hesterly, about doing a shoot since around january. the few weeks prior to the shoot were full of tons of ideas being thrown back and forth, and me buying the tiger swim from blackmilk clothing because... well, just look at it. i had been wanting it for about a year and decided it was time to just buy it. and i think it made the shoot what it is.
manda lee hesterly is genius. she is very talented at what she does, and i was so happy to have the opportunity to work with her. i don't think the shoot would have worked with any other model honestly. she saw my vision and brought it to life. not only that, but she matched my vision. it was great planning with somebody who was equally as involved in what i was doing.
i could probably go on about this shoot for days, but i am sure my rambling is boring you and you just wanna see the photos. well i just want to show them to you! i hope you enjoy them. :) because this is probably my favorite shoot to date. it's not often that i am proud of my work and wanting to show it off to the world, but i am completely satisfied with these photos, and i am happy to share them.
this is the stuff i want to do for the rest of my life.
(stay tuned for part ii)
