Six years ago, My sister, Kristina and I had met up with our good friend, Ashley, in Brookline, MA. It was the summer of 2010 and we were looking for something to do. I'll never forget that day; It was my first photo shoot. The sun was setting, the air felt heavy, and the sounds of the Green Line trains passing by mixed with the the faint noise of Boston traffic were forever present. The park we were shooting in was enclosed by an ivy fence that separated the tracks from the field and a tall cement wall. It felt like a secret jungle gym, a place of a confinement in which were were free to be whatever we wanted to be. Kristina was the photographer while Ashley and I modeled. Together we created our own story in real life and it .
