Q. What is your approach to alluring imagery?
A. I never shoot on my first instinct. The second look is more than just a beautiful client and her sexy outfit. It’s about capturing a cinematic delivery to convey her story of elegance, individuality and personal style. My client’s beauty consist of alluring elegance and sensuality. I think that when a woman is in harmony with herself & remains true to her values, she will glow naturally. Femininity doesn’t depend on what you wear or how you look. It’s an attitude!
