When you have an idea in your mind that feels right, take the jump and go for it. You never know what will happen.
After a conversation I had with this gorgeous lady during this shoot, I was able to learn about her love for fashion and style. As she was pursuing her college degree, she also dived into the world of blogging. She slowly built herself as a blogger, creating new trends while keeping budget in mind, which gave her exposure to many brands out there. As an up and comer, she is definitely one to look out for. Her natural beauty, great personality, unique sense of style, and her drive is all she needs to make it in this industry. I'm very appreciative of those who strive to do what they love.
Ladies and gents, let me introduce Mai Nguyen aka Little Mai Sunshine.
Mai has the abilities to be a model of her own. Her camera presence is honestly amazing and her poses came so natural. The pieces she put together coordinated real well with neutral colors that compliment her. The room was filled good vibes and there's nothing better that I can ask for when I start shooting.
In reality, I've always wanted to set something up with her. As I focus more on fashion with my style of photos, I figured we would eventually work together someday. It was definitely an honor to have her reach out to me. We finally linked up, had 3 looks on queue, and started snapping away.
At the end of my most recent sets and test shoots, you may notice that I started implementing more color. This shoot was no different. While we had some time to spare, I gathered what I learned from previous sessions and applied it with some slight touches.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the set. I'm slowly getting to know my style as well as having the opportunity to work with such inspiring individuals.

This is only the beginning of our collaborations. Be sure to look out for more in the near future.
Stay motivated, friends.
