I was out for an early morning shoot in my town when I rolled up on this gentleman. I just asked him if I could take his pic as he sat drinking coffee at 6:15am. I took a total of one shot and went on my way. I thought he had nice look to him.

Photoshoot with Emanne Beacha

Zoe in braids

I wanted to shoot a portrait of a model with braided hair. Zoe's sister jumped at the chance to braid her hair for this shoot. I think she spent all night on YouTube learning this braid. I think both sisters crushed it.


First shoot of the year. Well had to start with something special.
