This image captures the feelings on set and the intensity of the studio.I love creating Hair collections in the studio and changing the look as many times as we can. This shoot was my first time working with my good friend of mine Karen Cordell of @karencordellartistry. Karen and I have become great friends, she is a fantastic makeup artist, but somehow before this, we hadn't been able to collaborate on the same project. So we were STOKED. Karen introduced to the fantastic Daniel Kolomiyets @danielkolophoto. Daniel is like a sneaky magician in the way he creates such expressive photos, with little to no effort at all. He puts a laid back 'dont worry I'm just testing' vibe in the air. I was blown away by the delicate textures and shadows he creates with lighting.
Ava is an emerging model in Portland, but man she's GOT IT. The moment Karen and I finished our "touches" and removed ourselves from the light Ava was transformed, she posed with ease, vibrancy and confidence.The shoot was a blast. We shot at Daniels studio space inside Muse Model Management. Muse has a beautiful building with beautiful natural light in Downtown Portland. Working with this team felt passionate, playful and ready take on anything that is thrown at us.
