Around the same time I wrote that blog, I met a girl who would later become my model for the shoot. I had taken my baby out for a day at the park and had decided to bus it home. Meeting Brooke on that bus was completely random… we were in the middle of nowhere and the encounter was totally unexpected. Of course I had no cards, had my baby in tow and still had that “new mother” look about me (bedraggled hair, dark circles under the eyes, a vacant stare). So I scribbled my information on scrap of paper and gave it to her, saying I’d love to photograph her sometime. I don’t often approach strangers to photograph but there was something about her look that caught my eye.
* For the other photographers out there, this was attained by using natural light, plus a mini soft box on a 430 exii and a reflector.
