"Naturally Whimsical"

Welp, the photo shoot I was tossing and turning over finally happened and I'm soo happy with the outcome.
These photo's were shot by Photographer Richard James
He shot them all with film only, no digital

I must admit, I was a bit nervous at first (seeing as I've only ever had close friends, family and past/current boyfriends ever take pictures of me) but after just a short while I got more comfortable. I found myself feeling more natural with a camera focused on me at all times, and it didn't hurt that Richard was so sweet and supportive, he even called me "naturally whimsical" and said I have a striking face which was quite flattering. I've never thought of myself as necessarily striking before so I was beyond flattered.

Photographer: Richard James
Stylist: (me!) Ellen Howes

Location: San Francisco, California (near/around the Union Square area)

Richard's compliments and reassurance that I was doing a good job + a killer pair of heels I never got to wear to Senior Ball = total and complete confidence.

Big thanks again to Richard James, you were so great to finally meet and your talent and charisma made me feel comfortable and confident. I'm lucky to have met such a great new friend and I am very excited to work with you more in the future!
