I spent this morning in the studio photographing one of my favorite models, Alyssa. I will forever hold a special place in my heart for her, since she was the very first model that I paid to work with us on stock images back in ’07. Her images have been very successful. In fact, as of right now she is featured in two of my top three selling images on iStockphoto.

Due to some geographic and life changes, we had not worked together since nearly a year ago. But things are different now and we are back creating stock images. We spent today’s session revisiting some of our themes from ’08 and shooting some new ones. While taking the pics was a lot of fun, what was even more enjoyable was catching up on life with a such a wonderful person.

Welcome back, Alyssa! I truly look forward to what we will create in 2010.
