On the Other Side of Production- My Shoot with Will Aston

Hi, Everyone!

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot with a Philadelphia photographer Will Aston and I wanted to share my experience 🙂

Usually, I work on the production side of shoots: styling, hair and makeup. AND I LOVE IT. I have found a passion in this art and am eager to learn and grow and work on bigger and cooler projects in the future. I’m beyond thankful for the opportunities I have been given, and connections I have made. I’m also very excited to kick off a series of projects that I have been working on for a few years. We’ll talk about that later…

So, I was contacted by a friend, Tim, who is involved in the arts in Philadelphia. Tim liked a photo I posted (SO SELFIE), and forwarded it to his photographer, Will. Tim then inquired about shooting with Will and if it was something I’d be interested in. I said yes, although I was not very confident.

I would like to say that I’m flattered. THANK YOU! That’s so kind 🙂

Initially, I was looking at this as a networking opportunity, which Will and I did later discuss. And at worst, I might be able to snag a new headshot for my website.

I was contacted by Will, and we scheduled a shoot.

It took me a minute to warm up and feel comfortable. It was also only a matter of time until Will saw my goofy side, and laughed at my jokes. From that point forward, we had a blast.

We shot for a handful of hours in various locations. The images looked great and I was able to view them the next day.

A few days later, Will and I shot again.

Below are some of the images we created! Check them out!
