I had been trying to get together with Dwella for a while but time just hadn’t worked with us yet. I am mentoring a new photographer and we needed a model so that Kristina could get some practice in with someone that did know what they are doing in front of the camera. Sometimes you just want to take photos and not really have to work for it, you know what I mean? I wrote her to see if she was available for a spontaneous shoot and she was! Meeting this woman for the first time was kind of jaw dropping. You know how you see how someone is online and they are just this badass human and everything they post is amazing? She is not like that in person. She is very quiet, reserved and mousy. But when that camera is on her she literally turns into a different being. She can go from soft and elegant to fierce and powerful, then back to full on editorial, all in like one second. Our time together was so amazing and I know that it helped Kristina learn a lot about posing single individuals!
