Whenever you meet someone, there can be lot of pressure to impress. That first couple of minutes can be unnerving. Perhaps it's not that way for everyone. But, it's sure as hell consistent for me. I've only met a handful of people that have this ability to disarm me. You know, that effortless shrug and all-eyes smile that says "I'm all here. This is me. Tell me about you." This girl is one of them. She just wraps you up and you fall into her world of bright colors and thoughtful design. It was probably one of the calmest photo shoots I've had. Everything about her was effortless: her comfort in painting, her eye for style, and who knew-- her ability to model. A few instructions, a handful of cues and she was a natural. Teil is a calm, kind, dependable soul. Teil, you're a keeper.
