Funny story about Emily. I found her personal Instagram randomly, and fell in love with her look. After successfully sliding into her DMs and setting up a shoot, I later found out that she's ACTUALLY a talented photographer, known mainly for her dramatic overlays. She calls herself a photographer, but damn does she make a great model. She's small, but poses come to her naturally. I didn't have to direct her at all the whole shoot. I just pointed the camera at her and let her do her thing, and let me tell you, we captured magic. I hope you enjoy!
