Meet Emily

I met Emily a little over a year ago when I was working on my Instaxxx book. I had Tinder at the time and I was using it as both a dating app and a way to find girls to photograph. When I would see someone who looked really cool looking I would check to see if they had an Instagram posted and then I reach out that way instead of via Tinder. I actually found a bunch of models that way and Emily was one of them.

When I reached out about doing something for my book she had never really done any modeling, much less nude modeling. We met up one evening and walked around my neighborhood until we found this construction site and shot a handful of Instax photos in there. It actually ended up as a full page spread in my book.

Shooting her that first time went great but with first time models it’s great to have more time to shoot them in a place they feel comfortable. A few weeks later we took photos at her apartment and we took our time and got some really nice stuff. Since then Emily has done more modeling and moved out to LA. We talked about shooting again next time I am out there, but there’s something I love about these slightly awkward photos from someone who isn’t used to the camera. It just feels so much more real. 

As much as I like these photos they are not the reason I will remember this shoot forever, it’s what happened after the shoot. Emily told me she was turning 23 at midnight and was trying to figure out what she should do to celebrate. Jokingly I told he she should get the words “Today is my 23rd birthday” tattooed to her. She told me I should get it since I have so many stupid tattoos, so I told her if she paid for it I would get a tattoo for her birthday so I called her bluff and that’s how I ended up with the number 23 inside of a balloon tattooed to my leg at 1am in one of the sketchier tattoo shops I’ve ever been tattooed in.

So yeah, go buy my book to see a bunch of Instax of Emily, or go to Girls of Driven By Boredom to see these photos in high resolution or I guess you could just click the link below to see a bunch of photos of her without spending any money but that doesn’t really help me out does it?
