Laura was the very last person I photographed on my 2013 summer trip to the east coast, the morning before I had to check out of my hotel to head home. She’d seen and heard about the images I’d previously made with Playboy Model Samantha Pirie and she figured it would be fun to try it out herself. Samantha did Laura’s makeup and also provided invaluable posing instruction to make sure Laura would look like a pro!

I used both natural light coming through the window and AlienBees flash units. The shots with flash can be identified with the telltale “halo” shadow that surrounds Laura on all sides — a distinctive feature of ringflashes. For these shots, there was also a another AlienBees strobe to camera right, slightly behind Laura, with a warm gel.
