I was nervous—I haven’t had great experiences working with photographers, including one who told me I was not photogenic. But when I was working with Shala, I was comfortable and relaxed. It felt like she knew what she was doing.

After the session, I was excited — I couldn’t wait to see what she had done. When I saw them for the first time, I thought, “Yay! They look like how I think I look.” Shala’s a good one. I’m excited to use these shots!
