If pressed, I couldn’t tell you how my path crossed with Elissa. Obviously, it was in Jaco but I can’t remember specifically. What I do remember, though, is seeing professional photos of Elissa before we ever shot. And I feel like that was the impetus for us shooting. Because I’m sure I reached out to her after seeing her photos; some of the most striking I had ever seen. Anywhere. And I remember hoping to add to that.
Unfortunately, and I have no idea why, we only shot together one time. She modeled a number of shirts she had made as well as a lot of hand-made jewelry as well, all of which was just fantastic. And Elissa was just fun. And it comes across in the photos.
