If you follow my Instagram, I'm sure you've seen this gorgeous lady pop up more than once.
I met Angelynn back when I lived in Florida. I was getting my bi-annual haircut and style (I practically never get my hair done - I'm lazy), and she happened to be my hairstylist.
Being a photographer, my very first thought when I saw her was, I would LOVE to get her in front of a camera.
Not only does she have a vibrant, creative, magnetic personality, she has got a killer sense of style.
I knew I wanted to photograph her, but I was always too shy to ask. Well, at my last hair appointment in Florida, we're catching each other up on our lives, and I tell her I'm moving to the San Diego area.
She stops, steps to the side and says excitedly, "GIRL. I'm moving to LA!"
It was kismet.
A few months after we had both moved out to the west coast and got settled, I reached out to Angelynn and we set a time to explore the Arts District in Los Angeles.
It was everything I hoped for. The combination of the dynamic street art, Angelynn's style, and the strength that she just naturally emanates - it all made for what was easily one of my favorite portrait sessions to date.
