“I prefer more of an abandoned or run down look,” she told us. “A lot of my town just looks like that anyhow, so it wasn’t hard to make that a part of my style.” How does she choose her models? “Most of my models are my friends and sometimes when someone has a specific look I’m aiming for, I’ll reach out to them,” she explained. Location is normally the last thing I worry about.”
