Maxime is one of my favorite models of all time, and I finally got to reunite with her after a year long wait. She is currently running for Miss California title this year. She is the current Miss Pacifica USA.
Here are the behind the scenes photos I took from my shoot with her yesterday. Special thanks to Jessica C. Lee for wonderful work on Maxime’s makeup as well as Mike Polce for the photography assistance.
Preview from the shoots
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph two professional ballet dancers and sisters, Kollyn and Ashley. It was a break from my usual shoots with models and I actually enjoyed doing something different. Here are behind the scenes shots I took of the girls getting ready for the shoot. Photographs by me.

Our hairstylist had to bail out for our shoot, so Natalia (one of the models) decided to help out by doing hair for Cherish. Our setup room was in the lounge of the West Coast Leather store on Sutter/Grant.
Cherish is happy and ready to shoot!
