Shoot Date: June 20, 2010
Okay, I’ll admit it. I was a little intimidated when I met Najarra.
Ok, a lot.
But I mean, come on… did you see the image above? And what about the name Najarra? Never mind the fact that she’s an actress!
Luckily, she turned out to be a total sweetheart, and her disarming charm actually put me at ease. (I think it’s supposed to flow from photographer to model [and not the other way round!], so I was grateful for her kindhearted nature.)
I loved Najarra’s clothing choices. Her first outfit was both elegant and urban, and it didn’t hurt that her shirt was my favorite color (undefinable blue-purple):
Najarra has a beautiful, graceful presence. And I love the way all the lines and angles came out in this shot:
Najarra’s hair is superhuman. It must have sentience, the way it moves and curls and flows perfectly to compliment her face in every shot. I burn with jealousy!
Her second outfit was also perfect. Very pinup-y, which looked fabulous with her porcelain features and dark hair:
One of the best parts of shooting with Najarra is her smile. She often can’t contain it (or the giggles), so a photographer really gets the chance to catch a genuine moment:
She looks like something straight out of a movie… Wait… maybe that’s due to her impressive IMDB credits!
This glass was a little difficult to work with (especially since there were often other photographers and models in the background), but I love the way it compliments her skin, dress, hair, and stunning eyes.
