Once in a while, I get a break from standing behind the camera and get to be on the other side. Yesterday, I had the complete pleasure of modeling for Maile Wilson, a local photographer who owns her own designer camera bag line called Epiphanie.
I have been a fan of Maile’s work for years now so when she asked me to model for her, of course I said yes. I think I said yes more than a few times to myself.
After months of trying to get our schedules together, we finally met and I shamelessly acted like a fan-girl. I love meeting fellow photogs and especially love meeting those whom share similar experience and passions. I had a great time and the best part was getting to know more about Maile (she is even more amazing and fun in person than what you see online). It felt great knowing that we all go through the same struggles as people/artists.
I don’t take these kind of experiences for granted and I am excited I was able to meet her, pick her brain for a little bit and hopefully help her by modeling.
Before I left, she gave me some of her designs. It felt like I was on the Oprah show walking out with presents!
Below are the bags I am blessed to call my own. I absolutely love the detail she puts into her bags. The colors, the little tags, the braided straps (with interchangeable shoulder straps) make these bags easy to use and lovely to look at. Fashion+Function makes me happy. Who says all professional photographers have to use black and grey bags?
Thank you Maile for your time and all of your encouragement! And of course the gorgeous bags:)
