Dramatic depiction of a foster child for the mag.
Trying to pull out the sense of a disrupted life, without hitting any cheese.
The big turn around for the shoot was giving our model direction to still retain a sense of pride within her character. At first, the model was just looking really sad, and she just looked too pitiful (which hard to buy because she’s not actually a foster child). We asked her to look right into the lens, lift her chin higher up, and look more confident. Blam-o.
