I met Raina while in high school. I think she was two grades below me but we became good friends.
When I needed a model, she sent me a message saying she would gladly do it. She asked me what clothing and accessories to bring.
In this photo, I am trying to capture a picture I saw from Kirk Franklin’s Hero album. One of the singers had on a dress and converse sneakers. I loved the way it looked. So I asked Raina to bring a similar outfit.
Everything I asked Raina to do, she did perfectly. Her hair style brought so much more to the photo.
