Finding My Light

I was honored to take pictures with the beautiful photographer, Juliya Sirotin from Honest Expressions Photography.At first, I was very nervous and tense. I hadn't taken pictures in a long time (side note: I used to model in college) and being back in front of the camera was unusual.
