Sara A., one of my awesome friends, came into the studio for a (very belated) birthday shoot last week. We had actually planned to shoot two years ago, but life got complicated for the both of us, and so we weren’t able to make it happen then. Last week, I FINALLY got this girl into my studio, and she was absolutely amazing.
Who is she?
Sara is a tough as nails New Yorker with a no nonsense attitude. But don’t let that sassy exterior fool you. She’s a softie. Once you are in her good graces, I imagine you’ll be there for life. Just don’t dare say no to her, or she’ll give you this look, and you’ll wither in a New York Minute.
Classy, Sassy, Cool.
Class, style, elegance, and grace are just some of the words I’d use to describe Sara (also impatient, stubborn, and difficult—in the best way possible).
Sometimes I get a lil’ nervous.
Sara loved her previous photos from our first shoot, and so I really felt the pressure to give her some shots that were as good (if not better) this time around. I always feel this pressure with returning clients, and I channel all that nervous energy into the shoot. Nerves are a good thing. To lazily paraphrase a random musician, or athlete whose name I can’t remember, “if you don’t have nerves, it means you don’t care.” I care a lot, especially with good friends.
