Behind the Scenes: Photoshoot with Storm Tuiva

What an amazing day. Modeling for Storm was such a wonderful experience, he is so talented and quirky and just awesome and fun to be around. The pictures from our shoot are up on his photography page now see them here at Storm Tuiva Photographer. Also a big thank you to Abbie Field for doing my makeup, I had no idea that it was so complicated. 

So just because it's such an awkward story, I shall share this with you... This is how Storm and I met; I was op-shopping alone, just casually browsing The Great Mistake for interesting new items. Then I turned around as two beautiful people walked in the door. I thought to myself "Oh wow, they have the coolest style, totally look like a couple of models. I wish that I was brave enough to go and talk to them but I'm far to shy. Oh well..." and went back to my browsing. A little while later I glance up and notice them staring in my direction and smiling. It was one of those moments where I wasn't sure if they were actually looking at me or at something behind me, so I just didn't move. I just stood there awkwardly for a few seconds. Then something that I never ever expected happened, Storm approached me and told me that he loved my style and would love to photograph me some time. He took some photo's there on his phone and we kept in contact after that. And finally, yesterday, it actually happened. 

I'm so grateful for my life and all the amazing people in it. This just makes me think, what if every time I see a cool looking person I actually go and talk to them instead of just thinking about it. Imagine how many awesome experiences I may have missed out on just because I was too shy. So from now on I'm going to speak my mind and make an effort to meet new people. Because why not?
