I'm excited to be able to say I've met a new creative partner. I am very thrilled to be working with not only an amazing model, but she's also an artist herself. I cannot wait to see the work with which we fill this gallery.
After an awesome morning of appointments and meetings it was very relaxing to just go create an image with a model. Some folks golf, me I do this. Thanks @jesifit.fitness.yoga! Though I lost over pint of blood to the mosquitoes it was worth the pain. They only ate me for some reason. Oh joy! That also meant she was able to keep a natural smile on her face. I can't wait to see what we'll do next!

Last night we got to use Center Ground Studios as a location for a shoot. When we first arrived on set there were TOO many ideas of what we could create. After a quick exchange we took a cool down walk to a park and really discussed how she wanted portrayed. It settled us down and when be began to work it all just fell into place. Using the artist's workbench she and I exchanged ideas, refining the look of the shots. Her intuitive posing and understanding of form made for some really fun shots. The best though was her suggestion I learn how to instruct in yoga so I can better queue models. I may just have to do that. So many ideas. It was an amazingly fast four hours of work.
"She saw Valkyriur coming from afar, ready to ride to the gods’ people:
Skuld held a shield, and Skögul another. Gunn, Hild, Göndul, and Geirskögul.
Now are tallied Herian´s maidens, ready to ride over the earth the Valkyriur."
~ Grímnismál, Poetic Edda, Völuspá 30 (Codex Regius)
Yesterday after an awesome morning photo shoot at the Temple I had a second one with Jesi. While most of our time was spent driving around (slowly, and in the wrong lane at times) while we scouted out locations, it was a really great way to spend the day. Eventually we did take a few photos resulting in one that I think works well. It's also the last photo of the session, taken from the first angle she suggested. It's so so awesome to have a creative partner with vision. As a bonus, it was also her birthday!
