Life isn’t always easy. I don’t mean those days when you spill your coffee or you’re late or you don’t get something you wanted. I mean the valleys in life when everything seems to be a step off. You’re a puzzle piece but nothing around you fits. It’s these times in life that leave the particularly sensitive individual (….me) left spinning, wondering how things got so mixed up. I’ve posted about it before, but I’ll write it again. Dita said it best: “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” I take everything too personally. I can’t let criticism just roll off my back…. I end up covered in it. It’s things like these that make me wonder whether I was cut out for this world, but it’s too late to ask for a refund now. Guess I’ll just take the ride.
Let me paint a picture of the behind the scenes of this photo shoot: freezing cold. windy. camera malfunction. Not the ideal for any photo shoot, let alone a model’s first solo photo shoot ever. She handled the elements with such grace…. as a matter of fact, in some of the shots, I had to take out tears rolling down her face as a result of the wind! But you’d never be able to tell. She kept her face beautiful and calm throughout…. and the result is amazing.
She’s got a bright future ahead, no doubt.
