Collective Vibe Collaboration

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to join Collective Vibe on their 6 photographers photograph 1 model. Fast forward a few weeks later and we made it happen. Below are the final selection that we made, we had 2 hours to go through the whole shoot and figure out which one shot we wanted to show for votes.

This was a super fun experience, I felt honored to be asked to be one of the guest photographers for this challenge. Shooting for 5 minutes per look did give me a little anxiety attack. I don’t like shooting under the pressure of time crunch but it was a nice challenge and I enjoyed the challenge. Thank you all for your amazing skills for making this happen!!

Collab: Ramadhan Designs

I fell in love with Rammy Mohamed's designs after spotting them on IG. Finding out that she is a local MN artist, I knew I had to work with her.

Special thanks to Joylin for modeling for us & In Progress for allowing us to use the space. I also made a quick behind the scenes video from the shoot so check it out! 

I loved all the photos from the shoot so narrowing them down to edit was super hard for me. Check below for some of my favorite final products from the shoot.

Collab: Nahly Vue Photography

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Nahly Vue Photography who is a beginning photographer. Although she has recently started, she has already started gaining traction from her work and her ability to network so definitely check her out as she is going places :)

Thank you to the beautiful Kaozong Thao for modeling for us and freezing yet again!!

I also created a really quick video from behind the scenes that I recorded as Nahly was shooting and the images shown are the ones I took since I wasn't able to videograph myself shooting. I'll also be posting my part of the photographs below.
