TESSA TAKES SAN FRANCISCO
Creative, powerful, talented and etherial. Tessa is all of this and so much more as you can clearly see. She totally thrills me each time we shoot together and I’m always amazed how this humorous smiley girl can go from giddy to VOUGE in the time it takes me to bring my camera to my face. She has such a commanding presence in front of the lens and that, “it” quality that defies you to look away. Tessa is a professional ballet dancer living in Vienna Austria dancing for the Wiener Staatsballett. It is no wonder she is so breath taking and at ease. The morning of the shoot she arrived bare faced and bed heady, we merely tossed a few loose curls in and applied some lip gloss before we headed for the city. Tessa and her sister slept in the backseat each with one earbud from a shared iPod playing what we now know to be the Pokemon theme song. The instant we parked she stretched, made only one comment about the cold then put that famous Tessa game face on. Needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed myself and because of Tessa… my creative tank is full. Thank you.
