SHOOTING WITH CELEBRITY PHOTOGRAPHER DEREK BLANKS
This was a dream come true indeed. As I was cleaning up my email I came across a very old email from a amazing make up artist from London by the name of Chanel Boateng. She found me from my Modelmayhem page. As I read the email she told me I would be working with Derek blanks thats really all I needed to hear. lol I’ve always wanted to work with him n now here was my chance. Reading more I see the model was Alasia Ballard from ANTM Cycle 14 I loved her from the season but I thought to myself this is to good to be true and modelmayhem is good for that at times. So I somewhat just brushed it off. few months later I get another email from her and she sounds pretty interested and wasn’t playing no games. I still didn’t believe until the day I pull up to the Dblanks studio :). super excited everyone was cool and fun but we still had one person missing the model smh so much was goion on with her it was crazy. I started to leave the shoot until I called in a favor and asked my love Diandrea Redding she was there in like 20 mins she asked what she needed to bring n got up and came. this is why I love her. As hair and make up ius coming along phone rings and Alasia pops up now we have to models but hey you know me to is better then one.lol let me stop check out some imagaes from the shoot.
