Downtown Pensacola with Taylor Cherie

Over the July Fourth weekend I had the pleasure of working with Taylor Cherie in my hometown of Pensacola, Florida. Taylor is a young but very experienced and professional fashion model. She is very active in the Pensacola area.

After much discussion we decided to shoot in the picturesque downtown area of Pensacola near Seville Quarter and Palafox Street. I arrived at Seville Quarter early to scope out areas and backgrounds for shooting. Just a quick walk around downtown Pensacola area revealed several great nooks and crannies that would serve as wonderful backdrops. Like a true professional Taylor arrived as scheduled, prompt and ready.

Because of the unbearable heat we mainly stayed in the shadows, setting up in front of various doorways, brick walls, steps, and foliage.  We also ventured over to the nearby abandoned train tracks.

Throughout the shoot it was fun working with Taylor. She has a great sense of humor and a wonderful smile that she often keeps hidden. What surprised me most was her experience and focus. She's the type of person that will be successful in anything she chooses to do. 

I look forward to working with her again next time I visit Pensacola. Hopefully it will be during cooler weather!
