I first met Alisha on a group photoshoot day, The Dream Project, even with me shooting with so many other models that day, Alisha stood out to me, not only because of her striking looks but also because of her lovely personality and the fact that she is sooo down to earth, I felt like I had known her ages!
Needless to say this lead to us bouncing off each other really well which lead to us creating magic.
The following sets of images are of the shots we got that day.
Got to give it up to the amazing hair and makeup artist as well as the designers that were working on the Dream Project, Makeup Artist: Karen Messam, Hairstylist: Brenda Tukei, Designer: Itsy Bitsy Lingerie.
After the shoot Alisha got in touch in regards to shooting some images for her portfolio and comp card, London Fashion Week was coming up to she wanted to make sure she was ready with new and up to date killer images.
We went for striking black and white images to ad dimension and variety to her portfolio, here are some of my favourites from the shoot.
