Nicolette has been modeling for artists for over a decade; I was so pleased for the opportunity to photograph this beautiful, native Taosena! Nicolette admits that she was very nervous prior to her photo session, but within 15 minutes we were both talking and laughing and she was totally relaxed.
There is more to being a studio photographer than just pushing the button on the camera. I pride myself on a shining personality that allows me to easily chat and connect with my clients. Without this connection, I feel it would be difficult to execute even one image that truly represents the personality of my subject.
