I needed photos for my portfolio, I envisioned all the shots in my mind, the location, the style, but I needed a model. I knew Katie would be perfect, she’s beautiful, photogenic, and a friend.  Little did I know, she was a natural model.

When we got to the location, I could tell she was a bit nervous.  I remembered what I had learned about posing…give the model something to do…luckily I had brought some props, a bouquet, gum, a necklace to twirl, and luckily Craig had brought music (I’m very lucky to shoot with my boyfriend).  She mentioned that our banter was helpful, silence is nerve racking for a model, and immediately she looked comfortable in front of the camera.

I knew Katie would be a great model, but I had no idea how great she would be at posing.  Posing a model is one of the hardest things to learn as photographer, and I was so thankful for  Katie’s natural ability to pose.  If you are a photographer, I would definitely recommend working with Katie!

Thank you again, these pictures would not have been possible without you!
