Ah, the thrills of Bike Week in Ormond Beach! Nothing quite beats the traffic congestion, the smell of exhaust, and the constant soundtrack of loud motorcycles. Regardless of the increased activity, 15 year old, Laila braved the mild honking and cheering from passerby and turned out super star power. I don’t think I had ever seen so many cute shoes in one suit case before. Laila, a cross between Sarah Hyland and Alyson Stoner, definitely turned out photo after photo.
The day began like any comp card typically does: picking out wardrobe, hair and makeup. When I arrived at Kristia’s studio, half of the outfits had already been picked and laid out on the floor, ready to be packed up. While hair and makeup was going on, I made friends with both Laila and her mom, chatting about living in Orlando and how missing school for a photo shoot is always perfectly acceptable.
As far as assisting the comp card shoot, there were only a few instances where the reflector was needed to feather light onto Laila and beyond the reflector, I helped retrieve things from the car that were needed and spent a lot of time, outside of taking background photos, talking to the MUA, Alex, who has just discovered my comedic side.
