Earlier this year I was at a photo shoot for Vitamin Daily
. On the day of the shoot it was pouring with rain – all the traffic was very slow, even one second outside meant I was getting soaking wet! These were not ideal conditions for my first shoot, but you know what they say to do with lemons – turn them into lemonade!
So, I ran home from work, packed all my favourite clothes into a car, as well as my cosmetics and accessories, and hit the road. When I arrived at the location there was absolutely no parking – and for the record I’m a pretty novice driver so parallel parking on a busy street in rush hour is not my idea of fun. A tad stressed, and tight for time, I finally found a parking spot and then rushed to get everything out of the car and into the studio, without getting soaked. Sadly I dropped one of my shirts right into a mud puddle!
When I arrived at the shoot there were other girls having their pictures taken too. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I’ve never been on a real photo shoot, and to be honest, it seems a tad intimidating. I thought it was going to be me with hundreds of girls who do this for a living, and maybe I would stand out as someone who doesn’t do this. I’m not bad at hamming it up for the camera…but in some situations when I don’t feel comfortable I don’t want to be fussed over!
It turned out to be fun though! All the girls were very friendly, the organizers were nice, and the setting was very relaxed and comfortable. It couldn’t have gone any better. So when it was my turn I hammed it up for the camera – and even complied with the request to do the cheesy glamour shots the photographer was requesting!
And at the end we came up with a winning shot that is now on the Vitamin Daily website. You can find me in the Vitamin Daily ambassadors page
