Kate and I used to work together at a local coffee shop. She's a great friend and looks just as beautiful in person as she does on camera. (Kate was actually the very first person who modeled for me.) Over my spring break, I asked Kate if she would sit for me. It had been a long time since I had asked anyone to model for me, and to be quite honest...I was pretty nervous. Mostly anxious that I didn't have a clear goal. I didn't have any props or outstanding ideas. My lighting technique was hardly professional; I opened up my bedroom blinds and placed a white sheet over the bed. The room was bright and to my surprise the white sheet was a great reflector that provided a warm natural light.
As you can see, Kate is a true natural in front of the camera. She's super fun to work with and I hope we have many more photoshoots together. Thanks Kate - you rock!
