"The first time I met Sarah, of Flashpool Productions, was in her North Austin, home studio.
She gave me a very friendly welcome, offering to help me with my wardrobe, and other styling items I brought for our shoot.
She walked me through her beautiful home, we got to the back, and walked out entering her backyard. Everything from the hanging plants, pool, trees, and plush patio furniture all made me feel like I had entered some exclusive private resort, and I was the only guest for 100% of her attention.
I unpacked and showed her the clothing options I had brought, and she had on display some options of her own. We worked together to come up with 3 different concepts.
Now the time to get to work had come. She had this amazing submarine looking camera set, one like I had never seen. You could tell she meant business.
She let me enter the heated pool and get acclimated, while she took a few test shots.
She gave me the freedom to be as creative as I wanted, and provided ideas of her own for me to try.
I loved it, we worked so well together!
In between sets I was able to shower, and warm up a bit. She also provided a few snacks.
We shot for a few hours, however the time flew by. As most feel at the end of a shoot, we were very excited to see the results.
She didn't make me wait long. From that first experience with Sarah I have one of my favorite photos taken of me printed and hanging in my bedroom.
That was our first of what followed to be many shoots together. She is one of my all time favorite photographers.
I am honored to have had the opportunity to work together with.
I look forward to many more great projects with her."
I've had the pleasure of working with Lilah Bazarte, a multi-talented and beautiful soul, on many occasions since our first shoot together. She's a business owner, masseuse, model, actress, poet, seamstress, part-mermaid and so much more. She truly loves and embraces being underwater and it shows.
