I've known Stephanie for about 5 years now and we (and our kids) are great friends. She's also a photographer, and we've done a few shoots together, but I've never gotten to put her in front of my camera for a creative project before. I was inspired to shoot something that would be both melancholy and sensual, so I put together a mood board to refine the concept and yesterday we got our chance. Thunderstorms had just cleared, so the sky was perfectly brooding and dramatic. Stephanie did a fantastic job as my model and I love the way they turned out!
