Title: What Our Energy Brings
Model: Mari la Cuicani
I stumbled upon Marie after shooting Rob last week, I immediately loved her face. We were able to set something up pretty quickly after talking. I told her the feel I wanted to get from the look and style of the shoot so we were able to pick out some outfits. I picked her up from her Highland Park house, met her sweet and concerned grandma and went on our way.
I have been wanting to shoot at Debs Park for some time now, a few weeks ago two women were found dead there so I was a bit hesitant but I am all about positivity and beauty so I decided to go for it. We were going in with a great energy. It was a lovely day, the lighting was wonderful and we were getting along so well. I had a lot of fun. Marie talked to me about her love for singing, which I’m totally stoked to hear. She’s such a beauty inside and out. I love when people have a desire to do it all. There’s so much so do, try and be. We ended our day together talking about the documentary she is working on that will highlight the reality of chicanos and their culture. I’m pretty stoked to see that go down.
