I met my friend Tahira when we were in the same photography class at College. 

It was such a great experience and I am so glad that we are still friends and it is has been a pleasure to see her grow into the person she is today. 

I asked her to model for me and thankfully she said yes.

I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do. I sourced images on Flickr, Instagram and Google, I also sent them to her so she knew what I was looking for and also what sort of clothing and makeup to have prepared. 

Often times my ideas rarely turn out exactly how I imagine, maybe because of time, location, props or even weather. I never rigidly stick to the vision in my head and I always experiment when I'm shooting because it's these unexpected moments that always bring about the best images.
