I've been planning to collaborate with Toni for almost two years already. It's either she's busy or I'm the one not available. My admiration on how she's able to deliver those deep emotional looks and the confidence in her poses sold me out instantly.
Then come the shoot day. We didn't know what to expect from each other. It was a bit awkward knowing that it's been two years waiting and now what. The shoot started cold as we were trying to find our ourselves as an artist. But when you're both a fan of fashion images, it is inevitable that we will end up with engaging images.
Toni nailed it and there was nothing for me to do but press the shutter.
