My niece Mem is my buddy. We both have the same sense of humor and candor. So, naturally, she’s usually a great model who’s willing to put up with me. I’m trying harder and harder to live by my favorite quote. “When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.” – Cynthia Heimel
I am not ashamed to admit that sometimes my ideas don’t pan out. I’m human. And although I’m a good photographer with a lot of knowledge, the great thing about photo is that there’s always more to learn. And whether something works out or not, the fact remains that I’ve learned and grown every single time. It’s so hard to try something new, and even harder to admit that you screwed up. Why is that? Judgment. With the internet, we’re putting ourselves out there for everyone to see.
I’ve screwed up a lot. But you know what, after some trial and error, Mem and I succeeded. Here is my most favorite shot so far from our shooting. This is what I want to do. I want to make every woman look and feel like a starlet. I think we all deserve that when we need a pick me up.
