Every so often, I get the itch to try something different. Work on a new lighting technique, try a new prop, create some art or composite.  It's usually to practice some lighting or posing or photoshop.  So occasionally I will ask someone to model for me.  This time last year I had this amazing girl, Emma Grace, come out and model a Fall shoot, then we did another one with flour, and then another in the woods:)  Since I normally sit and debate for hours/days/years on my creative personal things, I decided I just needed to get her these.
