Marine : You're beautiful !

How can I describe Marine ? 

A small perfection ? 
Amazingly and surprisingly gorgeous ? She is ABFAB !

This petite young woman is just a jewel. The first time I saw her, she was a bit shy, a bit nervous (it was on the « 20’s » shooting) and she was not as self-confident as she is now. I had to say that when Carol & I saw her, we both looked at each other and knew instantly that she would be a wonderful model. 

She wasn’t sure of her beauty and was not able to control her nervousness but she was happy to be with Alex & Sarah and she acted like a girl meeting.

But she was just at the right place, the right moment, the right smile, the right pose, the right attitude. Any of their photos was right. No need to ask her to do that, or this. I just had to say that she was acting a 20’s girl, waiting for his beau and enjoying her time with her friends before leaving for a Charleston party. She captured the theme and did it by instinct. And that is major class to me.

This attitude of class made her do the greatest photo I’ve taken in years. She was pretending to be “Liz Taylor”. You know, one of the most gorgeous women in the world to me. And she accomplished being Liz.

Then, Marine is lovely, funny, making faces, warm and caring. She is always happy and never complains (well, somehow, in her eyes, you can see that she is not happy but doesn’t protest loudly).  To sum up it all, she’s a kind of angel with a devil inside.
