Earlier on this week, I got to meet my most favorite photographer in the world - Jash Manuel. And of course, my long lost sister, Ellie and I absolutely refused to let him leave until he shot us (after countless times of calling his attention and pulling the most random poses). I actually have video evidence of Ellie and I running around, screaming in excitement when Jash finally agreed. We shot in my bedroom ("OH MY GOD, MY BEDROOM WILL BE FEATURED IN JASH MANUEL'S PHOTOS!!!!!!") in less than an hour and we pretty much just kept fooling around, making jokes and going, "WHAT DO I DO WITH MYSELF? HOW DO I POSE? WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS? HELP!"
Regardless of how lost and confused we felt (or just me, rather; Ellie smashed it), Jash ~*magic hands*~ Manuel still managed to capture the coolest photos ever. They have quite a Nylon editorial feel to it, don't they? :) More photos are under the cut! Let us know what you think and don't forget to like his page (click his name up there in the first paragraph) if you want to see more of his stuff!
Yes, I do have a Harry doll. Yes, we thought it was a good idea to take photos with it. No shame. Here is photographic evidence of Ellie being so done with my shenanigans.
It was honestly such an honor to be shot by my favorite photographer with someone I look up to (Hi, Ellie). I was trying not to hyperventilate throughout the entire shoot, even after Jash said it wouldn't be the last. He's open to collaborations, portfolio, conceptual, artistic, advertisement and commercial work so drop him a line on his tumblr if you're interested!
