Wake Up Call

My beautiful roomie Lauren and myself decided to take a night walk on Friday April 28th around our block in London, as it would be our last chance to just take a stroll around our area together since I would be moving the next day! While on our walk, we discovered some really cool little locations such as the beautiful blossoming tree and some ally ways. Lauren turned to me during our walk and said "some of these spots would be really cool for a photoshoot!" and continued dishing out shot ideas for me, and boy was that a proud "mama" moment for me. So, since we knew this would be our last chance for a while, we wanted to do this shoot together. The next morning we woke up at the crack of dawn and began our journey around the block with our coffee in hand. 

Lauren has grown so much as a "model" and I'm glad we were able to shoot one last time for a little while since I would be moving back to Windsor. During this shoot, I barely had to give her ANY direction and she came up with different, elegant poses on her own. She has no intention of modelling as a career or even for small time hobby photographers - in fact she told me I'm the only person she will offer to model for - but might I say she has gotten a LOT more comfortable in front of the camera since the first time she stepped in front of mine. What an absolute pleasure to have this lovely woman as a best friend and muse.
