October, Friday the 13th. I remember scrolling the ‘gram when I saw a captivating photo of this talented young lady. We talked briefly about each others work and within 10 minutes we decided to set up a shoot for the next morning in the rain. I knew I wanted to go for a moody set with Valerie, but the outcome was beyond what I could have ever expected. The young actress/singer/creator could flip expressions faster than I could capture and never hesitated to follow my direction. Thank you Valerie for enduring the cold, wet weather to create this set!
