Last Saturday I met up with the always fierce, J Shan. You may recognize her from my 'WInter Goddess' shoot I did last year.
At sixteen, she has already accomplished quite a bit in this industry including being featured on BrandiJeans.com and getting published in this year's March-April issue of Infuental Magazine. Miss J Shan will even be walking in New York fashion week this month!
Luckily I was able to squeeze in a shoot with her before she goes to New York, gets scouted, and becomes famous. She has one of the best attitudes and really is a joy to work with. She's always willing to go the extra mile to get the shot. Whether it's having flour thrown in her face, climbing on top of a burned down house, or treking into an abandoned building. The only beef I have with shooting J Shan is that I find it so hard to narrow down my favorite shots when it comes time to edit. Not only did I get to go inside an adandoned building I've been eyeing for some time, but I got to work with incredible people. Hair was provided by the twenty-five year vet, Joyce Brunner. Styling was provided by Shon Draeshyn Gardner. And though she couldn't make it to the shoot, our make-up artist : Marisha-Mo Ozen Latoya, was there is spirit. And last but certainly not least, a big thanks to her lovely mother for driving all the way out to the stockyards! I love seeing such a great mom-daughter duo in action! You guys are going to blow their socks off in New York!

There is so much to do and see and photograph. How will we ever manage to capture it all?
