Ashley Batz, a photographer living in San Francisco, is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She has gone out of her way for me, and I am so thankful to have met her. On top of that, she's an incredibly talented photographer (plus, we get along great!). I met her a few weeks ago when I went down to San Francisco, and she put together an entire fashion shoot with make up artist Priscilla Francine and models Phylicia Sanchez (one) and Haley Scott (two). All I had to do was show up (literally!).
It was pretty amazing because I had asked Ashley if we could do the shoot in a park nearby the Golden Gate Bridge (as I wanted the bridge in the background). When we showed up and I started shooting, it was overwhelming. At one point I stopped taking photos of the models, and ended up just taking photos of the Golden Gate bridge and surrounding areas. The bridge is one of those signature landmarks I've only ever seen on TV, and to actually have it in one of my photographs is a dream come true.
It was so nice to meet all of you wonderful ladies, and I can't wait to see everyone again!
