Normally I’m a bit lazier and don’t pick up the camera for spontaneous shooting (something I should probably remedy), but the little ones seemed awfully nifty that day, weathering their first light/medium snowfall and snagging snacks where they could grab them.

Shooting couples always seems to end up well. The fact that it was Tori & Talon only made for even more cuteness. And, as the cherry on top, I threw Tori into this soft, fuzzy, pink hoodie and got some awfully pretty headshots. Happy day.

…when I’m looking over an entire folder of images I’ve shot for an AE set, I get the feeling like I may not have chosen the right pictures. Or that I could use more cells in the collage. Or that I should make secondary collages. Or… *sigh*

(There’s another blog that’s due to be written in the queue before I even write this, but it just came to me upon poking through the images and editing this shot…)

Yesterday was the first snowfall since I’ve moved here. It was a feathering so light that nothing even came close to sticking, but it had the feeling of the city itself eskimo-kissing me as the greeting winter approaches and as things settle in comfortably. While there could conceivably be some passive ‘waiting for the other shoe to drop’ thoughts, since I’ve had an unbroken string of meeting fantastic people since moving here, my view on it isn’t necessarily that riddled with idealism. It’s just a very, very pleasant set of fortunate events thus far.

Two completely different sources yielded one day of my first two official Nashville models.

Ashley is actually a co-worker. Now, while certain model-body-types aren’t what I normally shoot, a 6 foot 2, attractive, slender and sweet chickie is kinda hard to ignore. And, since she wanted to actually dip her toes into the whole modeling thing, I offered to help. She’s got some fantasticness waiting to blossom.

Tori was a incredibly fortunate find on MM since an intentionally quiet reactivation of my account. The soft echoes of a young Linda Evangelista and splashes of Milla Jovovich and Audrey Hepburn peek through in her face. It’s a rather happy thing to have a totally sweet and nifty shooting partner who can flash that for my camera.

So, I had the unadulterated fun experience of having them both over, quickly making friends with each other and breaking my new place in during my first official shoot since moving here. Quite pleased, I am.

They shall all be mine! (cue clever mastermind cackling)

Anyone who knows me is likely already aware of my affinity for tummies. It was really only a matter of time before I concocted some idea for how to properly give them tribute in a series dedicated specifically to them. These were actually originally supposed to just be diptychs; then I started getting too much emotion too ignore from the models (oh, the hardship!) and realized I would need a couple more cells to allow for their personalities to shine through also.

And so, it begins!
