Before you read this and realize I am terrible at punctuation I’m just gonna let you know that I know… It would not be a bad idea for me to volunteer in my daughters 3rd grade class and jot down some notes!
Jillian Rabe is one of those people that you just want to go the extra mile for. So, welcome to longest blog ever. Two actually. I’m breaking this up into two blogs! I had wanted to work with her for while now and when I got asked to photograph this event I was stoked. Everywhere I go, every time I get on FB someone is talking about how amazing Jillian Rabe is. Our first conversation was like a breath of fresh air. She was direct yet kind. Told me what she wanted and what she did not. As a photographer it is easy to over work to make sure you have what your client wants. When I got to The Space (Jillians office) Everything just fell into place. The event was organized, I felt like I meshed with everyone on the bus. I was surrounded by beautiful people with even more beautiful personalities. When we got to meadows it was gorgeous! Blue skies, amazing light to photograph Lauren Plumberg (whom is a wicked talented MUAH) get the models ready for the fashion show. The show went well despite my nerves!! I have only shot candids of models getting ready at a fashion show so… first time jitters and I could not see the back of my camera. That was mixture of luck and trusting my gut. Pheeewww! Anyway, all in all I feel like I got much more then a paycheck from this event. I left with valued friendships, experience shooting runway and an amazing memory!
