This weekend I had the privilege of working with a model who's career I have quietly followed online and through social media: Elly Mayday
She is an amazing woman that I admire and respect for so many reasons... she's a cancer survivor and advocate for cancer research; she is a curvy model that believes in being your authentic self; and after all she's been through, that she can remain the sweet, confident, good-natured human she is, inspires me to be a better human being.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU Elly for reaching out to me and letting me know that you were interested in working together. I was surprised, pleasantly so, to receive that first message from you (especially since I've wanted to create portraits of you for a LONG time); I'm so happy we could make this weekend work.
I look forward to working with you again in the future... XOXO
