On this night, our model Kristen (IG: @kristen_x33), make-up artist and hair stylist Allen (IG: @jallenstylz) and myself found a couple cool locations that fit the bill. Being Kristen is from New York I wanted to give her a small taste and appeal of her home town by shooting near flashing lights and a street backdrop. It's no New York City street but I used what was available to capture her in her element. Underneath a harden exterior that rarely smiles is a beautiful women that loves to show who she really is once the opportunity present itself. As a photographer I understand that it's not always about what I want, but instead giving what's necessary to place a beautiful smile on someone's face and Kristen has that now.
