After photographing her cousin’s wedding, Carissa contacted me to photograph some portraits of her. She has never really done any type of modeling or acting but wanted some lifestyle shots that could work for both industries. If this was truly her first time being the only subject in front of a camera she did an outstanding job. It is not an easy thing to act natural and to interact with the environment around you when you’re the only one being photographed. That said, good job Carissa!!! Oh and not to forget, Elissa you did equally as great holding the silk, providing us with some great light.
The locations were the Saugus Speedway (but this time we didn’t get kicked out) and the old bridge off of Magic Mountain Pkwy. The latter was much easier to get to than I had thought and the risk of being kicked off that property was mitigated by well defined trails and bike paths surrounding the area.
