waiting game

model: blaire

song/artist: waiting game/banks

afternoon all, 

in ontario (canada), 
is a holiday called 
"family day". 
i will not even go into my thoughts on this government made up holiday. 
i just hope, everyone is having a great day off. 

for those of you that checked in yesterday for a post... 
you would have noticed that i did not post. 
i have been feeling a sickness coming on for the last few days. 
and last night it hit me. 
i am currently still dripping, sneezing, coughing and wheezing all over my computer today as i type this. 
but the show must go on! 
i could not let two days pass without a post. 
to make up for yesterday's lack of a post i will be featuring people probably until march 2nd. 

so, here we are subject number 16. 
this gorgeous women is blaire. 

i met blaire initially through an upcoming subject feature named meika. 
but, oddly enough, blaire and i have six degrees of separation 
and i know about three or four other people that she knows. 
i love when this happens because it makes me feel like i am meeting (and liking) all of the people i am "suppose" to. 
 like it is kismet.
ya know what i mean? 

from the moment i saw blaire,
 i was awe struck by how stunningly beautiful she is. 
her features are out of this world. 
i remember thinking to myself 
"marla, stop starring at her like this you are going to freak her out!" 
but i couldn't help myself. 
i felt like i was starring at a unicorn. 
like this rare beauty that i didn't think existed. 

all that to say, 
blaire is wwwaaayyyy more then her striking beauty.
she is an accomplished academic. 
a multifaceted style leader. 
all around captivating woman.

she came to this shoot with her "A" game for style. 
and i appreciate/respect the detail put into this look.
she also gets the award for traveling the furthest to pose for lil ol' me. 
i am sooo happy she trusted me enough to photograph her. 

here is what we created on a devastatingly freezing day in november.
