rolend rose is an aspiring fashion designer. having known her since she was two, i can definitely attest to this. she always stood out as a sore thumb, a head above the rest of the little snotty-nosed runts in scuffed pants and wrong-footed shoes (hi, norm!), and was little miss posh, always in a cute dress, faux fur jacket, tights, shoes, purse, and matching headband. and now, she's graduating from college! (yes, i feel aged, as i write this.)
as photogenic as she is, she swears she's camera-phobic. she was the ideal client, down to do pretty much whatever we asked of her. we decided to shoot in our backyard, on mare island, the former naval shipyard. we've been dying to shoot here since there's some cool industrial locations that are pretty much deserted. it's like a photographer's disneyland...
congratulations, babes! can't wait to see your fashion show and see you walk the line this december!
the happy grad
struttin' her stuff
