Stephanie and I go way back, both as friends (close to 17 years now), and as photographer/client (engagement, model for commercial work, fine art, to name a few). Stephanie recently headed east from sunny Orange County, and thankfully brought a weekend of sunshine with her, enabling us to pull off the shoot that we had scheduled without her turning into an Otter Pop.
I’ve been itching to shoot at a nearby abandoned factory on the river and the surrounding nature paths, so I was excited that Stephanie is game for anything! It is such a special treat to have a dear friend, sweet soul, and artistic muse wrapped into one amazing (and beautiful) person. I feel truly blessed.
