“A model for a day” contemporary fashion flair portrait shoot took place in the summer in my home studio in Astoria, Queens and on location, a rooftop that oversees the Manhattan skyline. In my opinion, this rooftop offers one of the most breathtaking views you can imagine. In this blog, I want to share some of the model’s insights as a valuable reminder to my audience what photography experience is all about, so enjoy!

K: Thank you once again for agreeing to model. What did you get out of this shoot personally?

Thank you for shooting me! It was refreshing for me to be on the other side of a camera, for a change. The experience itself was really fun! Starting with professional makeup, image consultations, hair-styling and mimosas (for encouragement), I was raved up when it was my turn to step in front of camera. I felt confident, partially because I looked so hot! (Laughter). My new image made me fiercer, bolder and sexier. I think your pictures show that. After the shoot I had a lot of friends telling me : “Wow, you look amazing” and “OMG you are a rockstar” which not only made me blush but also reinforced the grandeur of the experience. This also proves that for a  woman, there is nothing sexier than confidence.
