Michael's Challenge


I was super excited as soon as I found out that Michael's was challenging creatives to pretty much go into their shop and do what we've always dreamed of doing: photographing inside their store. Who wouldn't take advantage of this challenge?!?! I certainly did - although they announced it right before I got sick so I had to wait a few weeks before I actually finally did anything about it.

Thank you to the lovely model Houa Vang who reached out to me prior to my health for a shoot, I ended up asking to shoot with her for this. She was so lovely to work with and did a super job! Thank you to my awesome sister Victoria Vang for recording footages for me as always. I was able to keep a memory of this awesome day because of her. Check below for the behind the scenes as to how I shot these with no reflector or other source of lighting besides using the light that was given to me.
