Joanne wanted to do a photo shoot with her best friend. She wanted images that captured the intimacy, caring, and gentleness that exists with someone who loves you and knows you better than anyone else in the world. Joanne wanted a natural look and although these images are obviously stylized studio shots, I love the feeling of authenticity. And this is not actually her best friend. The friend was hesitant to do a nude shoot and Taylor stepped in, so it was the first time these girls had met. They were fantastic. I did Taylor’s first shoot last year and am super impressed at how much her skills have developed since then. I’m quite proud of her. All these images are taken with just one light. I did almost no editing and many of these images are pretty much straight out of the camera. You can click an image to view full size and scroll through this set.
