Imi and I have been following each other on Instagram for a little while and we finally organised a shoot after a good few months of going back and forth. I usually know whether I want to shoot someone as soon as I see her, there is something indescribable that draws me to them. Imi is striking, as well as being a beautiful girl she is also creative and it oozes from her very being. As soon as I met her we immediately connected, we talked about everything, chatting each-other’s heads off in-between shots. She has a gorgeous energy about her, completely open and vulnerable. We did 5 looks and 108 shots in less than an hour. Working in this way reminds me why I love dressing girls and taking their photographs, I love watching them transform, and even though they are often playing a role in uniform, they appear to be completely at ease.
