Behind The Scenes of a Dream

What started out as just a crazy idea/dream for me to recreate some Tyson Beckford photos that I really liked. Turned into me coming across some photos that he and Naomi Campbell had previously done together in the past in a couple of different shoots.

I began to think what if I reshoot some of these photos with another model. It wasn’t hard to figure out who would be the best lady for the job, the one, and only Liris Crosse aka the “Plus Naomi Campbell”! Admittedly a bit nervous I reached out to her to see if she would be interested in doing this shoot together and she agreed!!

The rest was a dream come true!!!



We decided which photos we would recreate,  picked a photographer, booked the studio, and created all this model magic!!! This was by far one of my best and most exciting shoots to date! I enjoyed working with Liris and everyone who helped with the shoot, especially our amazing photographer Tarrice Love he brought out the best in us during the shoot!
