I’ve admired the work of local model, Raelyn for some time. Her portfolio is quite diverse, and she has a propensity for the unusual.
What strikes me the most however, is her inclination to create noteworthy images. I thought she would be a perfect collaborator in creating beautiful art.
We had been in contact back and forth for some time, but for one reason or another, we could not get together on a project.
Then unfortunately, she moved away. I thought I had lost my chance.
In the Spring of 2008, Raelyn contacted me and said that she would be visiting the area for a couple of days and wondered if we could arrange a shoot. Finally, we settled on a date for what I anticipated would be a wonderful project.
Three days before our shoot however, Raelyn informed me that she was having some sort of allergic reaction to something which resulted in some swelling and a rash on her face. I thought our plans were doomed again!
By the day of our shoot, things had fortunately cleared up enough that she was willing to give it “a go”.
The results were everything that I had hoped for, and then some.
I have since lost contact with Raelyn, but have hopes that she will make her way to my studio once again.
