This was my second time shooting with Amanda and it happened spontaneously, as kind of a last minute decision. In my opinion, having virtually no plan and a limited time to prepare presents the best circumstance for creating freely and without expectations.
She's very professional and has plenty of input from wardrobe and make-up to poses and all kinds of intricate details, which allows me to deal with the technical aspects of the shoot and to try new things while also hitting all the basics.
Our shoots are always fun and productive, with a natural flow, and at the end Amanda is also great at helping me find the real gems in the stack of unique and interesting images.
Amanda takes directions well, which made the above image one of my absolute favorites.
Time will tell, but I feel like there are more collaborations in our future...
