A photographer’s dream: meet the girl with an irresistible look, take her out shopping, then to the studio. We pick and choose what to start out with, a warm up outfit. Once we’re comfortable with each other, even the basic poses and outfits will look intentional and will have presence. Now it’s just the me, the camera, lights, and her. She puts on a simple one-piece, it reveals all only behind its delicate flowers. Each word that comes out of my mouth is a motion for her to move. She looks intently into the camera and moves gracefully between each word, already anticipating the next move, that’s when I know we have chemistry and the ideal subject. At this moment I am speechless but words of encouragement and flattery spill from my lips. Her ears, eager to hear more, persuades her body to reveal more. I pinch myself to see if it’s a dream, the pain travels up then down to my arm, I smile.
