She’s so nice, I had to photograph her twice. Some images are NSFW.
Recently I posted images from my first session with Raven Johnson on the shores of Lake Ontario. The power between us was so powerful that we decided we were going to shoot again the very next morning. We parted ways at 930 pm that night and met again at 430 on the shores of Oneida Lake for a sunrise session.
Did I mention that she lives almost 90 minutes away from Oswego where we did the sunset session? She drove 90 minutes to do that session, drove 90 minutes back home, and then climbed back into her car to make the 45 minute drive to Cicero 4 hours later?
Needless to say someone with that kind of drive is going to go exactly as far as they want in this life. I will bend over backwards to help a person like that.
While her energy is intoxicating, what really sets her apart is that she embraces who she is fully with no reservations. She is totally comfortable in her skin and has no time for those that would might have an issue with that.
In short – she embraces her appearance and screw you if you have a problem with that.
How can you not love a person like that? She is the kind of woman we need more of in this day and age.
I’m not going to clutter up this entry more than I have to so you can get to the images. Needless to say I look forward to working again with this unicorn as soon as possible.
