Nicole and Vish are all sorts of awesome. I loved them pretty much the second we met; I loved them for picking a non-cliche location for our shoot; I loved them even more for wanting to find a way down onto the rocks below the fence to pose beneath the RFK bridge:
You’re probably not supposed to be down beneath the walkway, but I’m all about going the extra mile for a good photo – even if it means rule-bending or getting dirty. And I love it when I get to work with people of a similar mindset. You can’t tell, but those rocks were so slippery! And it was a wee bit chilly down by the water too, but they gladly pranced around in front of my camera without their jackets. Such troopers!
And just when I thought they couldn’t possibly get any awesomer… they broke into an impromptu snowball fight! I swear, I never ask my subjects to start such shenanigans – they’re just that awesome that they do it on their own!
But oh wait, they get even more awesome! Nicole and Vish like making faces and being goofy! Being the self-proclaimed Queen of Faces, I appreciated this immensely! Nicole did her Lady GaGa face (not pictured in this post, sadly) and Vish did the ‘Blue Steel’ (Zoolander) pose. I had to try to control my laughter so I could work my camera, but man were they funny.
