Many of my favorite photos are not posed. I have literally put cartoons on a TV while shooting indoors to try to make the models laugh so that I can catch them smiling, because telling a model to smile will almost never work naturally.

Steph and I were shooting in an empty apartment that a friend got us into. I have no idea what was said to create this moment, but it was an immediate accidental favorite for both of us.
