An On-Line Journal

2004 01 19 - It Just Keeps Getting Better!

I have to admit that my luck with attractive models has been improving as of late.
With two models added to my photography page last week and a whole slew of runway models Friday past, I can honestly say I'm on a roll.

Today I was scheduled to meet another model to discus a shoot.
I was a bit hesitant with this one because in the very first email I received from her she came right out and stated that she would not do any nudity.
Not that her statement was uncommon by any stretch, rather that it seemed almost accusative;
Like I was some pervert that only photographed naked girls and needed to pet put in his place.

My cautious stance was heightened when I looked over her portfolio.
Her pictures had a very 'safe' and pretty look to them.
I wondered: Was I about to meet a Doris Day model type?

So at this point you're probably asking yourself, why bother with all the effort if you don't think it'll work out?

The Answer: Because of the potential upside!
I found her so damn beautiful I just had to meet her.
(If even just for a cheap picture for my journal)

Meet Larisa

She has a surprisingly friendly and outgoing personality - One that I've only encountered before in European women.
You see, when I first walked in I was expecting her to be a bit shy and nervous but no, she was comfortable in her skin and quite happy to get to business.
How can I not love this girl?

Anyhow, I left our meeting with my mind buzzing with ideas.
I'm so giddy with anticipation of our upcoming shoot that I find myself giggling as I type this.
Well, not quite giggling; more like a sinister laugh - You know the kind!
The kind of laugh only perverts who photograph naked girls use.

And, if all this wasn't enough...

She paid for lunch.
