I’ll admit it – when I first met with Mona to plan her model portfolio development shoot, I was really skeptical when she mentioned doing bridal. I knew she had this gorgeous, sultry and exotic look – I definitely could see her doing fashion and editorial… but bridal? I wouldn’t exactly say I was reluctant… but I definitely remember spending about 30 seconds pacifying her before moving on to the next idea.

I’ll also admit when I’m wrong :)

I just wanted to post a quick peek from my amazing session today with Mona to work on some new shots for her modeling portfolio. She’s a bit new to the industry, but I was more than impressed with how many options she gave us during the shoot!

And my dream team – Melanie Pace and Jillian Caro – just totally brought it. They are amazing, no matter what we shoot, where or how, they know how to make me look like I know what I’m doing :) PLUS (as if I needed any other reason to work with them), we always have such a good time!

I have so many more to edit… but a few quick faves will have to do for tonight! And if you’re not my Facebook Fan, be sure to jump on and check out some hysterical Behind the Scenes footage from the shoot!
