Miami Beach Welcomes Wilhelmina Models!

Hey there! I’ve been wrapped up since one of my last shoots right before turkey day! (Happy Belated Thanksgiving BTW! ūüėČ ) But I couldn’t forget to share the update! I was thankfully able to work with a couple wonderful models from Wilhelmina Models! ‚̧ It was kind of last minute since the models Julia and Christine, flew right in, and were flying right out, but it was a whiz of course! I fell in love with their look! The moment of the shoot, I knew working with models was truly a calling for me! I enjoy communicating with, sharing and directing models to find the shot and improve their skills, taking full advantage of their beauty, with the help of a wonderful strong team as well!! The shot is the¬†character¬†and attitude through the models body language, owning the mood of the story. I can tell helping models build their books is my thing! Well, duh! Especially since I do plan on owning my superb¬†modeling agency one day! =)

 

I can say I am so thankful for the growth and opportunities! I appreciate everyone who are a part of my journey! The negativity that comes along has to be dealt with PATIENCE and FAITH! I feel everyone chasing a dream must be realistic with¬†their self!! If you truly have the skills and talent, the passion and attitude, there’s really no stopping you, just have to keep practicing and wait.. =)¬†

I always do this, I just had to share with you!! lol Now back to the point!

 

Here are some of my FAVE shots from the shoot! Check out MORE on my FAN page on Facebook with an easy click!! Portraits By Leanza

Hey! Hey Heeey!! My lovely folks!! I have the final results from the shoot the other day and I want to share with you some of my top faves! It was simply amazing watching her grow and tell her story before my eyes! With me having the growing skills and talent to direct and capture her was simply SCINTILLATING!! So let’s cut to the chase and share some of the results and cross our fingers that the booker loves the photos of this budding model Nina Salci at Elite Model Management. Thank You to Make Up Artist Kristy Colon Andres!!! Shout Out to her and visit her Fan page on facebook!! =)

First Shoot with Elite!

Around 4 am the team was up and ready to get to location by 5 am! Lucky me the scene was in my neighborhood =) The model and her mom were just so easy to work with and very flexible! The MUA (Make up Artist) was ready and energized to exhibit her wonderful talent! I knew Elite wanted fresh, easy, breezy also with some edgy and moody! I was so happy that the booker loved my style of photography and believes in my work! Model Nina Salci was the sweetest and on her toes with directions and unleashing her charisma in front of my lens! =) As we were working on set , as any shoot, we’re learning and experimenting! The visions in my head and camera at hand were two and two delivering the results! After shoots, I tend to reflect on how it could have been better, like maybe with angles, lighting, or etc. But all in all we gave it our all and most of all HAD A BLAST! So my people, stay tuned!! I will post the results but you’ll definitely be able to check out more on my fan page at Portraits By Leanza Please hit the like button too or just to your right! ūüėČ

Birthday Fashion Shoot!

Hellloo folks!!

 

Yes If you guessed, My 20th birthday pasted July 11th, Wednesday! And on this special day, I was working hard, rolling on all over the ground for the “shot”! LOL It was seriously a wonderful opportunity.. I got to work with model and Pagent Winner Miss Teen Florida USA;¬†Genavieve Paige Bou√©, Pasarela Fashion Boutique and FIX boutique! Pasarela will be producing large posters, website and catalogue photos of MY work!! I have to find out how I can get my hands on all of them as soon as they’re up for my port!!

 

Maybe I can share with you all too of course! ūüėČ

 

I learned a lot with that particular shoot! It truly was a blessing and an awesome bday gift (especially with the dinner afterwards! Yum!)

But let me tell you, there was a lot that I will prepare for next time.. I’ll share a couple

1) When working with a client, The shoot is no longer for you! It’s your job to bring the clients vision to life (through your style of course, that’s why they chose you.. right?? )

2) Sometimes original ideas just aren’t going to work anymore, you must be VERY flexible, and ready to bend over with a whole new plan

3) Make sure you have your clients goal at best interest!! ¬†There’s nothing worse than shooting all day to find out your images are awesome, but missed the point in mind ! ¬†KEEP THEM INVOLVED!

4) Last but not least, do whatever you can to create the best customer service atmosphere but be yourself! Your clients will feel more comfortable with you, open to recommending you to prospect clients and future projects!

 

After days working on this shoot and balancing my day job, I’ve finally been able to create this post, whew lol I love it!
