Ilana and I met on a Birthright trip to Israel in December of 2019. Ilana also met my friend Chris on this trip – they joined the trip as strangers and left as lovers.
A few months later Ilana was looking for a special gift for Chris for Valentine’s Day. We came up with the idea of using Ilana’s modelling and acting passions to create a boudoir photoshoot. Ilana took it one step further – she found a tiny wooden cabin in the middle of the forest, rented it for the night and invited Chris over. But before that, we did a photoshoot there!
This was definitely the most unique location I’ve ever shot at. It was challenging in terms of space and lighting, but I think we made it work perfectly!
