VALENTINA.........I had the pleasure of working with Miss Valentina in December for a Prom Dress shoot for Bravura which is a local Dress store here in Georgia. Valentina is a gorgeous girl with a spunky and fun personality. Her family is from Columbia and it was ironic that I was there in September for a friends wedding. Val literally JUMPS off the screen on images. Her HUGE eyes which I've nicknamed "Marbles" are stunning and make her face very alluring.
Sometimes when I shoot "pretty/bubbly/nice" girls......I like to change their mode to more EDGY. If a girl is already "EDGY" then I will try her in a "softer" mode. When building a portfolio of images a person should create a multitude of looks to show their diversity and flexibility. This really helps models and actors not get type cast as only having ONE look. Val definitely has some depth. She was very coachable and took my instructions and suggestions well. Her sister Cami also assisted with the shoot with ideas, styling help and even took some behind the scenes photo/video for us.....THANKS Cami!
These are just a few of my favorite images to start with but there are TONS of great shots of this lovely young lady. She is studying Broadcast Journalism currently at a local University and I'm sure she will do well. Bright, smart and beautiful......she is definitely "made for TV." Remember us little people Val as you climb to higher heights!
