Emily: Hey, do you want to do a shoot?

Me: Sure. Can you come to the studio at 6:00pm?

Emily: Yes I can. By the way, is there any way you can give me the pictures after the shoot?

Uhm, that would be a no Emily, hahaha. I need to do some post-processing before I can send them to you. Otherwise, that would be like me being a chef, and giving you a plate full of ingredients. Raw. Taking the photos is only a third of the work.

I think there’s a lot of energy in this 22-year-old grasshopper. She actually arrived to the studio early. 5:55pm and she was already there. What, a girl being early? That doesn’t happen these days! And I was “late”. And by “late” I mean 5 minutes early. I had to say I was sorry that you arrived early. Yes, I’m professional like that icon smile Emily Drazil, a young grasshopper Tam Nguyen New Nork Portrait Fashion Photographer

Okay, let’s start shooting shall we? You know when you tell someone to turn right, and they’ll just do exactly what you said? Well that’s not what happened here…

Me: Okay can you turn right a little bit? Right. No, I mean right. Right. You’re turning left…

Emily: Oh…

It’s okay, she managed to figure out the direction. Kinda. This is one of the first shots…

Me: Those are some really cute pictures. Do you have a different outfit you can try on?

Emily: Yes I do. Here, let me put it on.

….after half an hour of shooting with the new outfit…

Emily: I really like those pictures with the Christmas gift outfit…

Me: Huh? What Christmas gift are you talking about?

Emily: Oh you know, these ones. The outfit that looks like a box with a white bow… kind of like a Christmas gift box….

Me: ooooohhh…

This is what she means…

…and then we wrapped things up with a few shots with the ring light. I personally like this one the best…

That was a fun shoot. Emily was nice and easy to work with. I hope to work with her again in the future. Next time, I’ll tell her to be 15-minutes late, and bring a compass or 2 signs that say “Left” and “Right” each, so that I can put them on her sides icon smile Emily Drazil, a young grasshopper Tam Nguyen New Nork Portrait Fashion Photographer

These are only some highlights of the shoot. You can check out the rest of the pix on my Flickr’s set or Facebook page.
