Last October I was lucky enough to join seven other sexy ass SoCal models at a FotoGregg California Gold Group Shoot in Riverside!
It was an awesome time, and we even celebrated one model's birthday!! Apparently, I was the only one truly excited about the cake though...

In addition to cake, there was another great surprise! A photographer I had messaged with many times on Model Mayhem but had yet to meet, one Randall Casey, was also at the groupshoot! He insisted we shoot.. and who am I to say no?
While working together, Randy and I had a ... let's call it a 'collision of style'. Randy has a very particular look that he likes, and my job as his model was to embody that look. As cute as I was, he just wasn't digging the snow leopard get up...
I met him halfway and lost the [amazingly adorable] snow leopard hat...
.... Which made him very happy. My next outfit choice, however, was also met with less than roaring applause...
With this look however, I knew there was potential. As much as I try to mold myself into what it is that my photographer wants, I also occasionally gently push them outside of their comfort zone (for their own good, of course!). I insisted we shoot my overly glamorous ensemble, feather boa and all, and guess what??
This is one of my favorite photos to date...
And I could tell that he ended up loving it too.
Since Randy had been such a sweetheart about shooting my previous outfit choices (and now that I had a real feel for what he liked), I pleasantly surprised him with a lace top I'd been saving for just the right photographer. He was speechless with joy... but luckily still remembered how to work his camera.
We also had a little fun with Leather and Lace in the bedroom..
all part of a well-rounded photoshoot.
Thank you, Randy! So glad we finally got to work together =)
