Adria Silva | NYC Music Portrait Photographer

I was introduced to Adria through a good friend of mine. She's his colleague but importantly, an aspiring R&B singer. She has a single out right now titled "All Night" and I liked her look so I asked him to connect us. Planning for the shoot took a few weeks because of scheduling but we finally decided on a location in Long Island City. Luck had it, we scheduled the shoot right smack in the middle of a heatwave with temperatures reaching mid-90s by 10:30am when we met. Even through the sweltering heat, we all braved it through, shooting in various nearby locations plus a wardrobe change. Here is the result of that day.
