If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’re probably familiar with Turna. If not, let me bring you up to speed real quick: SHE IS AWESOME. There’s really nothing more to say than that. But I will, because I JUST can’t stop myself.
When there is a knock at the door and Turna is there, standing in the doorway, Bryan slowly starts walks away to put on an exposives suit. Because it’s like a bomb goes off. We? Basically tear out the walls. With energy. Bet you didn’t know that was possible. IT TOTALLY IS.
Turna has been busy lately being awesome in New York (she’s an actress who you should book for every job out there, Casting Director who is totally reading my blog). I don’t say this just because she’s one of my best friends in life, but she is amazing. AMAZING. I’m telling you homegirl is destined for greatness and I believe that with every fiber of my being. During our shoot, every click of the shutter elicited a new pose. In every frame there is complete commitment. I would ask her to do something, anything, and she would do it. She trusts me. And I trust her. It’s like, magic.
To say that shooting her is effortless is an understatement. I’m telling you, the girl knows how to work it. But at the same time it is so completely challenging because she forces me to push myself and think outside of th box. To get uncomfortable, to shake up my boundaries. To break apart everything I know and go right back in and put it back together in a different way.
This shoot was an a-ha moment for me. Everything clicked, and where I have in the past struggled finding my voice, she made me sing. Very loudly.
I feel so lucky to be able to shoot her.
If you’ve read this far, you’re probably really creeped out because that all sounded like a love letter to Turna. That’s okay, though, because IT TOTALLY IS.
Thank you T for being so amazingly awesome. I super love you , and I can’t wait to shoot you in New York!!
