Getting the opportunity to work with new cosplayers is probably one of the best things about cosplay photography. I wasn’t aware at the time of working with her, but this was actually Aspen’s first ever photoshoot. Which was amazing because she is so incredibly talented. This wasn’t her first costume in anyway, but stepping up in front of the camera like that takes a lot of courage. So during the shoot, I actually assumed she had done at least a few shoots before, if not more. So afterwards when we were talking and she told me, I didn’t know what to say. She had slipped so easily into character and into posing that I didn’t have to do much work, and I think the pictures really show her incredible talent and dedication to her craft.
