Had a blast wandering around Downtown Haverhill with Mariana the other night for a little mentoring session I had with her. I was teaching her the basics of night time portraiture. As if shooting at night wasn't interesting enough on its own we were lucky to have start heavily snowing right in the middle of the shoot and I had never been so happy to see snow! Here are a couple of the shots I got of her during our session!

Although it was very alien to me I offered to be on the other side of the camera for her to practice throughout all of her session and she did great! Heres one of her shots of yours truly:

Here is that same photo after editing it myself.

After months of failed attempts of setting up a shoot with Monica because of conflicting schedules the planets aligned and boy, did some great stuff come from it! Had a blast exploring through all of the distressed back alleys of Haverhill! Something tells me you'll be seeing a lot more of Monica in a few upcoming shoots!

For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel
like home.
