This shoot was such a surprise. And a great one at that! We started out the day at Fostr Collaborative, a creative venue with a natural light studio in the heart of Georgetown DC. We had a couple of hours in the morning for Rachelle Celine’s jewelry shoot and a couple hours in the afternoon for my 3rd Headshot Marathon (blog post coming soon!).

Then, things started to derail when our model was a no-show. Valerie Hammer, my wonderful friend and makeup artist, and I were taken aback for a few minutes when we realized this girl was really not going to show up. SO UNPROFESSIONAL! That’s when Val remembered a mutual friend with Rachelle had a gorgeous daughter who dreams of becoming a model. Luckily, as soon as we contacted her, she got in the car and drove up to Georgetown.

We lost an hour of shooting, but Ayla is just such a beauty and such a pro already in front of the camera, we ended up with images that we are ecstatic about!
