Oh my word. I cannot believe I got to shoot this beauty.
Taking photographs of professionals in the aesthetics industry is incredibly intimidating. Because these cats know what they’re doing. They know how to make people look good. So if you can’t get your light right, then you’re just ruining everything they’ve just worked on. But the ladies who run the tools at Kate Korpi (you’ve heard us wax poetic about them before) put me at so much ease. Like when I was getting my first pouf. Which is how I met Emily.
Hailing from Arkansas, Emily first landed in Phnom Penh as one of Kate Korpi’s roving guest artists. Uber talented hair stylists that they woo over to Phnom Penh to teach new cool things to KK’s students. Then I guess Emily got bit by the Phnom Penh and Kate Korpi bug (the good bug, not the sucky belly kind) and wound up staying for a few months!
So in Emily’s last week in the city, she asked me to take a couple of fun “senior shots” around the city. And I basically cannonballed at the opportunity. I made lists of everywhere I wanted to shoot this infectious red head in. And over four hours and six locations, this gorgeous gal got all the shots. We’re gonna miss this lady. If you bump into her somewhere around the world, do get your hair did with her. She might even introduce you to the poof. Here are some of her shots 🙂
