Dina contacted me after she saw another client’s photos. She was so excited, we didn’t even set up a confirmed time for her appointment! But we managed to connect the following day, and I met her for the first time when she arrived at my studio.
When I saw her, the first thing I thought was how dramatic her photos would be with her bright, white hair. I found myself focusing on that as I shot her photos. I wanted to show off her sensuality, but also bring in an element of softness.
It’s always harder for me to photograph someone I don’t know. I am a “mood photographer”, and sometimes I have to just go with the feeling I get from someone I haven’t spent time with. I hope I have captured the essence of what makes Dina who she is.
