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.

Kana is a dancer who I connected with on Instagram. I loved how confident and comfortable she looked in her portfolio (can't leave out her dance moves either!) so I reached out and we were able to set a date easily. She was the first dancer I ever shot with and as she claimed, she really knew her lines and knew how to pose for the camera. So much kudos to her for not one peep while on the rooftop in 30 degree snow-flurrying weather. I was wearing clothes and I was freezing so I can only imagine how she felt. But luckily, we were able to get comfortable in the living room and came up with some great shots. 

Big S/O to Matt G. for letting us use his place.
