Sabrina: adorable, genuine

yesterday i had my first photo shoot of the new year. haven't stopped taking pictures, but yesterday was the first time in a long time I'd been able to schedule a new model and take her picture for as long as I wanted.


Oh, this is Sabrina. Sabrina is one of the best friends of one of my oldest friends.


Sabrina has herself an awesome house, shared with two others, in a fairly fantastic area in LA, deep in the heart of the hassidic enclave. Great light, even on a rainy day, gorgeous deck, wildly interesting design to the whole place, lots of fun to romp around.


They had a party there last friday, but upon discovering that Sabrina would be the only person I'd know, I decided against going. I've come a long way, socially, but I still don't look forward to the idea of being in a roomful of strangers. Unless they're all there to see me.


Which they weren't.


But I digress.


Sabrina was an excellent model, an actress by trade, she was comfortable in front of the camera but not, as I fear when shooting people who make their living being in front of one kind of camera or another, fake.


Not that I could tell, anyway.


Lots more new photos to come.


Ooh, also, this film? Not actually expired, but it came to me by way of a friend who had brought it from another state, packed it away in some luggage, leading me to believe it got zapped by the x-rays, thus resulting in the faint yellow cast you see here.


Which I hate. But still, free's free.
