Meet the Model: Ali

Oh Hey, another blog post finally! It's been a while >.> opps.

Anyway, this is another Meet the Model post featuring a girl I went to school with, Ali. She just recently started getting more serious with modeling and I was very lucky to be able to shoot her =]

A little about the shoot:
So the shoot we did was something I decided I wanted to do a little bit before October, Halloween Pin ups. I wanted to do it in the studio and have a bunch of girls portraying classic halloween costumes: witch, cat, vampire, etc, in a very 50's fashion. Due to scheduling and me getting sick we didn't end up shooting until the week before Halloween (so I had limited editing time since I wanted them released on Halloween). Also, though I had a few girls interested, only two of them were able to shoot: Hannah and Ali. It actually worked out well though, because since there was only two girls, I had them dress up in different costume, thus giving them more pictures.

So when it was shoot time, we loaded my car up with props including (but not limited to): a bean bag seat, three pumpkins, a large bat, and spiders. Plus like three other big bags containing costumes, makeup, and everyone's stuff. I'm sure it was quite a scene watching three tiny girls trying to carry all of that stuff up to the studio. Luckily I was at least able to drive the car up to the building so we didn't have to walk too far with everything.

The shoot went really well, the girls seems to have a good time. Course when we first got there we found someone's camera in the studio and ended up waiting like an hour for this guy to get his stuff and give me the studio key. So because of that the shoot seemed really long, but it was a lot of fun though =]

So here's Ali's little interview! and below her pin up pictures from the shoot as a vampire (others can be seen on my fb:

I am a creative that loves to empower and inspire. I love to share my work and my story and push people to living their full potential

How did you first get into modeling and what made you want to pursue it?
I was a very insecure person due do past relationships. And someone had told me I could be a model. So I gave it a shot. It has done amazing things for my confidence.

To be honest I'm not really sure. Hopefully still sharing my gifts and helping people find theirs.

How would you say our first photoshoot together went? 
I had a blast! You have no problem giving direction and I instantly felt comfortable. Sometimes it takes me a little while to get warmed up but I was able to jump right in! Sign me up for any more shoots you want to do! smile emoticon
