I love doing one on one shoots. There is a different pace when its just you and your model that slows everything down and it’s a time to connect. When Speed Racer’s Cousin, Mary Beth, asked me if I could take some portraits of her for a modeling agency she is using, I was thrilled! Number one reason? Because she’s gorgeous. Number two reason? Because she’s gorgeous. Number three reason? I like to hang out with my models, so it was a great excuse for a day to just have fun together despite our busy schedules.
For this shoot, we wanted a variety of looks but all keeping within a professional theme so she could use the images for a variety of submissions from modeling, acting, or for music gigs. Make up by yours truly.
We had a blast going around the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and exploring downtown. I think the photos reflect the good time we had and the comfort and trust that we had in each other. Thank you to Mary Beth for letting me help you with this project and I hope it results in some new jobs!
