My very last shoot in my studio loft, it was a little emotional for me. To help you understand I have to explain that Jesse and I had been packing and disassembling our things for the entire day before the shoot. I began to notice that we were not on schedule to leave the following day because we just had so much to do, as a result I ended up continuing to pack through the night and into the morning without sleep.
and her coach Rafa Delfin arrived early so as I go the studio ready sent an S.O.S to the amazing Rose Fortuna
to see if she could bring me some much needed caffeinated energy. ( I think this was the day that I turned Rose on to "Red Eyes.")
The shoot was wonderful and I had such a great time shooting Alida, she is a natural in front of the camera and genuinely sparkly individual! We talked, took pictures, and laughed, the perfect last shoot in my tiny studio.

|Everyone having a laugh before the first look, Donald Trump is watching over us in approval!|
|I think Raine is really intrigued by Mr. Trump|
|Pardon my tired appearance, I really had so much fun!|
Ps: After finishing this shoot I continued to pack up the apartment and proceeded to not sleep again. I caught a 2 hour nap in the early morning before throwing the last few items in the UHaul and driving to Maryland. I have never had so much coffee in my life! ( Yes Jon Lee, I consumed even more coffee than I did while printing my portfolio. At least this time it was good coffee ;-)
