4 years ago, I took a trip to Arizona to shoot with my mentor and friend Larry Alan. Matter of fact you can see the post from that trip here -> Arizona Trippin'
While there I met this amazing young lady named Rachel Kaye Eblin. I remember being in a bit of awe of her because at the time she was this signed model and was a beast at the shoot I was helping Larry with.
I remember Larry encouraging me to shoot with her and I was like, "Nope, I'm here to watch and learn." Really was just a bit shook at the opportunity to work with her and I didn't have the confidence to think I would do a good enough job.
After that Rachel and I kept in contact and she eventually moved to Chicago and I told her, "You know I want to photograph you. I just need to find time and a way." By this time Rachel was more focus on doing make up work versus doing modeling work. I didn't give a damn, I want to photograph her anyway. She wasn't going to be that one that got away. Well...the new year came and told her..."This is happening...". I found a way to get to the Chicago without anyone knowing.
