michaela in thirty six seconds.

When I happened upon the nineteen year old Syndey-based photographer, Annette Wilson’s video portraits, I was totally blown away.  I had done videos in the past, remember the darling Liam, but her video portraits were different and raw.  I fell in love with every bit of Annette’s work and well, her.  And so, I sent her a message gushing to Annette of how much I love all that she does.  She responded quickly and enthusiastically, offering me some direction with video portraits.  Annette Wilson, you are a creative genius.  You are also humble and generous; such a wonderful combination.  Thank you Annette! Be sure to check out her work here.

So, how much can you tell about a person in thirty six seconds?

I can tell you three things for sure; Michelle is kind, she is smart and she is beautiful.  She was also freezing.  Thank you dear Michelle. Here are a few natural shots I adore of Michelle, a mixture of digital and film.
