Natalia and I decided to meet the Museum of Contemporary Art – a place I’m always up for visiting. She told me later that it wasn’t her favorite museum, but she had developed a new found appreciation for it as we were going through the exhibits and assessing what would work for our pictures. (MCA, if you’re reading this – you have a converted Chicagoan who now loves your museum!) I like that she said that because that is the perspective shift I experienced with every new place and journey ever since I got into photography.
For the record, Natalia wants to be a pilot. I think I’m going to have to keep her contact information…. 😉
I sent these and a few other pictures to Natalia after we met up and she replied with, “I’ve never seen my eyes like that and I didn’t know that I could be [photographed] like that! I love it!!” I was relieved that she liked them as most of her portfolio are fill with high fashion photography (which is something I’d love to dabble in one day….soon?).
Looking forward to working with you again, Natalia!
