Driving past tobacco fields here in North Carolina ... I always thought to myself what an ugly plant. I mean, the leaves are huge, limp and usually a horrid yellow/green color. Not to mention, what tobacco does to people once it's dried and rolled into a cigar, cigarette, or mushed into one's lip....
Thus, my concept came alive! Natalie rocked this session ... even though she's a "crunchy mom" who doesn't smoke ... she did awesome! (we seem to match the models with the concepts horribly when it comes to their life styles ... lol Natalie with the smoking and Tay with the pig heart... LOL)
The above picture was exactly what I was looking for. A grungy beautiful model, rocking the cigar and those hideous leaves! Natalie isn't just a pretty face, she is also a photographer and you should check out her photography page HERE.
I can't say that this concept was a hit on just my talent and creativity ... I've gott give credit to Tysha, Will and Terra for putting their two cents in and making this session even MORE awesome. I mean, check out the below pic!! :)
