Photo Addicts & Sugar Fiends
There are a number of reasons I enjoy doing photo shoots with fellow member of the Scott Robert Mentoring Series, Mayra Ariza. Aside from our common love of photography and junk food, she’s very friendly and easygoing, and we have a great time just wandering around with our cameras and trying things out. But mainly, it’s her voluminous hair and awesome cheekbones. Seriously, this girl needs to spend more time in front of the camera. For this particular photographic adventure, I made my way over to Mayra’s ‘hood and explored Downtown Riverside where there is no shortage of cool alleyways, greenery and architectural features to use as dynamic and interesting settings for portraits. I also introduced her to the magic that is the Japanese Cherry Tea Latte at the Coffee Bean and changed her life forever – it’s THAT good.
