TLDR: Carrie is an amazing artist & beautiful woman that took these incredible photos of me up in the Angeles National Forest (where we even found a waterfall) ! 🙂 Enjoy the pics & more projects to come! Follow her insta @cafrancesphoto & here's her website https://www.cafrancesphoto.com
I met Carrie after one of my performances in "Time Stands Still" at the Lounge theatre. Almost every night I had to rush right to work afterward so I didn't get to meet many people but I'm really glad I had the chance to meet her! We exchanged contact info & she reached out to me about a little collaboration project involving a fairy/witch/nature-inspired type aesthetic photoshoot up in the Angeles National Forest! I was really excited to get some great shots with Carrie and enjoy a little nature adventure but the day absolutely surpassed my expectations!
I also got to meet Andrew, a friend of Carrie's that helped us out during the shoot! He was super sweet and helpful and carried everything including lights, my boots and towel, and even me at point when I was trying to get down from this tree lol... & he brought this sword that made me feel like a bad ass!
Today I met up with Carrie at an adorable little restaurant called "Aroma Cafe" in Studio City & we chowed down on some yummy ass food! I got the breakfast quesadilla! (I'll have to do a separate post on "Aroma Cafe" next time I go there. So good. and so cute! Very Key-West-ie!!!) Sitting down one-on-one with her was so nice because-well, first of all, she's just the sweetest thing ever-but I really got a better understanding of her artistic view and deep appreciation for women, actors, artists and all human beings in general. She's so creative, kind, respectful, and inspiring-I'm really honored that she wants to include me in her future projects!
There were so many great shots-I still can't believe we found this waterfall!!! Carrie and Andrew were so patient with me even though my eyes were super sensitive in the light and I was a cold little baby in the water lol
I really just had so much fun hanging out with both of them & making some cool photos! & what an amazing nature adventure!! And look at all these fairytale pictures I have to add to my portfolio & make me feel like a real-life princess! Thank you so much guys <3
Also, did I mention, Carrie is hilarious & so much fun! Apparently this shot here is a tradition in her creative photography process! hahaha I love it!
