    Paris - On Set With Xenia

    This photo is the first photo of Xenia that I took during our first private session prior to our first editorial shoot. I had the pleasure of first meeting her during Paris Men's Fashion Week and then again during Paris Haute Couture. She is such a beautiful person from the inside out. I know she will have a very successful career. 

    I shoot outdoors a lot and thats what I had planned for the rest of the session. Being that this was the very beginning of the shoot and I had been inspired by the lighting of this location, I decided to start the shoot here. I love the way this photo came out. Window light is one of my favorite types of lighting and I love to use it whenever I shoot indoors.

    Paris Beauty - Through my Lens

    While I was in Paris I got the pleasure of working with Xexia several times. I can honestly say that she inspires me every time. She is really nice and easy to work with which allows my creative ideas to continue flowing as the shoot progresses. This shot was taken towards the begining of our shoot and it is one that I have been in love with ever since. 

    When I am shooting I like to find new ways to try new things and always push myself into new directions. I like to engage new creative styles, effects and angles. Sometimes you don't quite achive the look you are going for, and other times you end up with something better than what you expected. 

    Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try new things.
