As usual, there's a backstory to every shoot. Months ago I wanted to setup a shoot with dancers to do something creative. Just a personal project. I spent the time thinking through all the logistics and concepts, did lots of planning, set a date and - it rained. Ugh.
Fast forward a couple months and I thought I wanted to pick up where I left off but it was very last minute and none of the original team was available. Fine! I still want to do it so I'm going to post something online to see what I can put together. Lucky for me, Erke answered my casting call and Alexa was available to help with make-up - and boom.
I started with headshots. We only took a few because we were limited on time and I really wanted to see this girl jump. I was NOT disappointed. I picked this location from suggestion from another photographer and it was perfect. It has all the elements I wanted: interesting but not too busy, very NYC but not something you see all the time and open shade which is so much easier to work with.
