A Spotlight for a 6 Year Old Model

Six year old Isabella Smith was born with severe conditions that affect her knees and legs, but her parents won’t let that stop her from doing the things she loves! Already with a thirst for the camera and stardom, Isabella became my youngest model yet.

Working closely with her mother, Noemi, we coordinated a photoshoot with various wardrobe changes, scene shifts, and a final dramatic look that involved some metallic liquid gold.

To read Isabella’s full story and details about the photoshoot, please check out Nonahood News’ article covering the story.
"At the very end of the photoshoot, I wanted to go into something unique and artistic. I saw an adult version of painted hands in a beauty ad. I wanted to replicate this but use Isabella in a way to make it look like the dark part of a fairytale or a nightmare. For this final image of the photoshoot, her mother and I used our own hands to form around Isabella, and I timed the shot with a remote trigger."
