Model for a Day

I haven’t made blogging a priority lately because I’ve been in the midst of working on several small projects (which I’ll tell you more about later) But in addition to participating in my first ever Ping pong tournament last week, I had the opportunity to be a model for a day.

I’ve done a few photoshoots with friends in the past, some more successful than others, but this one was different because the photos actually turned out way better than I expected. Creds to the very talented photographer, Mike Shafer! He somehow managed to make me — and the city of Sioux Falls — look way classier than we actually are.

But don’t let yourself be fooled by my bare legs and assume it was nice and balmy out that day. I do live on the American prairie, you know, and when the temperature dropped to -4°C (25° F) I had to escape into my actual (less classy) coat in between every shot.

It’s always interesting to see things from the opposite side of the camera, and even if I usually prefer to be the one hitting the shutter, I had so much fun!

I’ll post more photos later, but feel free to check out Mike Shafer’s work and my blog-gallery in the meantime.

Blessings,
Maria
