The first part of my light, contrast and beauty project. I was a little intimidated to shoot Maile because she has so many amazing pictures of herself and I also find her photography moving. She takes incredible, intriguing self portraits and other photographers have shot amazing pictures of her... But that's the thing I've realized is number one creativity killer; fear! Forcing myself to shoot even if everything isn't "perfect" can only help me grow as an artist. So I was so excited with how these turned out. She loved them and will let me shoot her whenever I want, which means you'll be seeing more of her gorgeousness soon.
