Tomorrow is my first photo shoot in a couple of years. Back when I lived in MA, I was friendly with a few photographers, and I would go on shoots maybe once a week or so. Sometimes more, but usually once per week with my favorite photographer. (Love you, T Bear!). About a year after I started doing some modeling, I wound up getting sick with things one right after the other. Pleurisy (infection of the lining of the lung. So painful), then I got mono, and kidney stones, and really, I had no energy or time for photos anymore.
A few weeks ago, I noticed I had a new email on my modelmayhem.com account so I logged in to respond. While I was there, I decided to update it, since it hadn’t been done in a few years. Changed my weight, (I’ve gone down 30 pounds from my first photo shoot!), my location (no longer in MA anymore) and add a recent photo of myself. Well, about a day or so later, I got an email from someone interested in shooting with me. I hadn’t really thought about modeling again, I’m so busy with other things going on in my life, but I figured it’s only one photographer, and it’ll be fun! I don’t really have any recent professional pictures of myself. So. Tomorrow.
I’m kind of nervous, truth me told. Not about shooting. I’m a total ham in front of the camera. Not about my body. I’m pretty comfy in my own skin. Just nervous about the prospect of meeting a new person. New people do make me a tad bit nervous. I’m sure it will go well though. Master will be there. Due to the nature of the type of photographs I tend to take, I never ever go to shoots alone.
So yeah. Wish me luck! Rest assured I will probably post pictures here, if I like any. (And in a four hour long shoot, you would hope there’s at least a few I’ll like. Lol!)
And just for shits and giggles, here’s a picture of myself in my very first photo shoot. I’m 30 pounds heavier in it than I am now, so no picking on me for my weight! :P Master actually did the rigging for the shoot, and was totally off camera holding a string that would hold me up from the spreader bar. lol!
Oh, and before anyone asks, this is a hobby of mine. I am not in any way a professional model, nor am I trying to be so. It’s just a fun thing I do from time to time.
