As a photographer, it's hard to find new models to work with that are 1) beautiful 2) photogenic and 3) cool. With August, I was lucky enough to get all three. We had several friends in common on IG and I just asked her to do a shoot in San Francisco. She agreed and she came over with some great outfits. I shot her and her friend on the streets of Nob Hill and inside my studio apt.

After that, we shot together three more times in San Francisco. Once with her and her boyfriend (who is the luckiest guy in the world btw) and again we got some great photos, as you can see below. August is one of the models that I worked with that has no formal modeling background or experience, but yet she is a natural. The camera just loves her, as you can plainly tell. Unfortunately, she moved away from the Bay Area but hopefully our paths will cross again in the near future for some more incredible photos.
