Collab: Stacey Moua Photography

We first reached out to each other when Stacey posted up a need for editing help a year back or so and I reached out to her first through messenger since the post got a bit spammed and I lost track of the questions. Fast forward, my friend Cha told me that I should meet up with Stacey in person because Stacey is amazingly cool and lots more of other facts that finally pushed me to contact her.

The first time I reached out to collaborate with her, I caught the flu and couldn't make it. I felt so bad that I just kept to myself until Cha and I got together again and she was like, JUST CONNECT AGAIN GIRL! So that night, I drafted my message and sent it to her hoping there wouldn't be any more issues that come up.

So before the shoot, it was raining and I was hoping (because MN weather is bi-polar) that it would stop raining when we got to location. Which it did! Thankfully! During the shoot, it was beautiful, the sunset after the rain just helped the glow on her skin and it was just beautiful. Although when my sister and I headed back home, we got lost, it was a fun mini adventure.

Thank you Stacey for putting this shoot together! You gave me more confidence to contact creatives about working together. It's one of the struggles I go through having anxiety and I'm thankful to have awesome people like you guys help me work through my anxiety with me.

So here's a little clip of what went on behind the scenes. We're missing a chunk of the middle of the photoshoot because we were putting our assistant to use (I have my assistants record if I don't have them hold the reflector or something).
