Last weekend I went to Detroit to visit with Diane, the youngest of my mother’s 10 siblings. Although we are two months apart in age, she is my aunt! We have had a unique bond since we were little girls. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Diane and her husband Al. They were fantastic hosts!
While visiting, we made a point to schedule a photo shoot of Diane, who is a former model. I’m always looking to expand my photography experience and expertise, so photographing Diane was the opportunity to do just that!
Diane lives two blocks from a park located along the Detroit River, which has picturesque views of Windsor, a city visible across the river in Ontario, Canada. I’d visited the park a few years earlier, so I knew it would be the perfect location since it provides plenty of great back drops. Diane selected a few outfits, some of which she tailored (the white blouse and print maxi-dress. She is an awesome seamstress) and we headed off to the park.
Upon arriving at the park I scouted out a few locations and began the photo shoot. Diane was fabulous and I think she should pursue modeling again! She effortlessly followed my direction and gave me just the poses I wanted. She even added a few of her own! We had a fab time, in spite of it being a hot day and a bit windy at the river!
Don’t you think Diane should model again?
