I had a wonderful opportunity to shoot identical twin brothers Jordan and Travis Smit represented by Soul Artist Management. When they arrived to my studio space, I just wanted to do images that were clean and simple. I wanted to create images that captured how beautiful their faces are in person so i created the head-turbans to give drama around their faces.
Last summer I went home to visit my family in Memphis, TN and on my way back to New York I got stuck with a long lay-over in Atlanta. I called my photographer friend, James K. Holder and asked if I could crash at his place. I got a chance to see his studio (it is amazing) and he cooked me dinner.
Since I was there, he asked if he could shoot my portrait. I was feeling tired and fat (i gained 11lbs during my family visit) but I didnt feel it was fair to say no since he let me shoot his portrait when he was in NY....so I said yes and we shot each other.
James has always comfortable with his body so I shot him nude (of course). I saw this pile of white fabric in the corner of his studio and decide to have him drape it over himself with his giant fan blowing.
HE SHOT ME....

Sitting in front of someone else's camera was very hard for me. I never like being photographed.... I don't even have graduation pictures from high school. This was my first time having my portrait taken with a professional photographer. I am very happy with the results..... James did an excellent job.
