I came across Thysha's Instagram page probably two months ago. I liked her look and she mentioned something about wanting to connect with photographers so I left a message. She responded telling me she'd reach out again when she's in town. Like most situations that start out like this, I really wasn't expecting to ever hear back but to my delight, she did reach out once she made plans to visit NYC. 

We scheduled a time/location and I asked her to be on time and she actually came earlier than me (I might've been 2 minutes late). She came with an escort who was friendly and a great assistant. With him holding my reflector, we were able to manipulate the lighting to capture some great shots. Overall, we were able to click and get some creative photos. I really like how these came out so I'm hoping she hits me up again when she comes back to the city.

I connected with Kana again for a shoot in a Breather room. This shoot was actually my second of the day and to be honest, I was pretty exhausted. But because I shot with Kana already in the past, we were able to skip the awkwardness and get right to business. It was right around sunset when we met so we took advantage of the ambient light available in the room.
