I’ve known my cousin, Elisha, since she was a baby! I was a flower girl at her mom’s wedding! Now she’s all grown up – still cute, still has the sweetest singing voice…but still a baby to me. She asked if I could take some photos of her to submit to a modeling agency. How fun, I thought, my own fashion photo shoot! Then I realized…uh oh…no help from Ja, Bev, James or Andrew? What seemed to be a great opportunity for me to figure my way through a shoot, soon turned into, well, fear. I’d never done anything other than engagement shoots or weddings, and I’d never ever been left to do it ALONE! Plus, these photos were going to be submitted to get my cousin a modeling agent? HAHA…no pressure. =)
I wasn’t totally alone, though, thank goodness. With help from my cousins, Mari (who took care of wardrobe and hair) and her sister Keshia (who is a make-up expert), the shoot turned out to be really fun. At times during the hours waiting for the sun to start going down (man, was it hot!), I kind of felt like I was babysitting. Haha! I feel like these girls are so much younger than me. Young or not, however, they sure made this day a time well spent outdoors. What started out to be a pressure-filled task for me, turned out to be nothing but quality time with some really great girls. I can’t wait for the next shoot with them!
