Since most people (myself included) have no idea what to do when they get their pictures taken, it’s always fun for me to photograph a professional model — someone with lots of experience who knows what they’re doing when they step in front of a camera. Margarita, a Latvian native who has been modeling for almost 10 years, is definitely one of those people. She is super fun to work with, and we both let our creative sides go wild. In addition to modeling, she has acting experience in both commercials and on TV shows, appearing in commercials for Chevy, Axe, JCPenney, Clean & Clear, McDonalds, AT&T, and Moto X to name a few. She also landed a role as a model for an episode of New Girl on FOX. Above all, Margarita is a fun, carefree, and warm-hearted person, with a lot to offer this world. The last time I photographed her was about a year ago on her wedding day, and I’m grateful we got to work together again.
