Though Michelle and I had worked outdoors together a couple of times this year, this was our first opportunity to work together exclusively (without other models around). Being late December, and outdoor session wasn't an option, so we went into the studio.

As Michelle hadn't posed in a studio before, I didn't bring any view cameras, instead spending the session working with a classic Hasselblad 500c/m and a portrait lens. The simpler approach permitted us both to work swiftly, and fostered a spontaneity and energy to the session which paid of in both volume and success.

It is no accident that this session focused almost elusively on portrait images; Michelle's presence in front of the camera drew the eye to her face, and I made the most of that strength throughout this session.
