Define by JaimeIbarra Define by JaimeIbarra
In the chronology of my photography, this photo goes back several years.

The significance it holds for me is that this was the first experienced model I ever worked with. It was also the first time a model hopped on a plane to come shoot with me. I could continue this list of "firsts" for looooong time...but it is enough to say that working with her forever changed my photography. I became "spoiled", very quickly. She set the standard...and that standard was lofty, indeed.

For the next several weeks, I wanted keep the momentum and keep shooting, but I just couldn't find anyone that came close to her calibre...that is, until I met her identical twin sister (jaimeibarra.deviantart.com/gal..., who quickly became my most-photographed model. The images I created with her would eventually go-on to define me, as a photographer.

But the day I took this photo is when all of this began.

Officially :)

both of them are amazing looking. and the amazing art belongs with both you and the two sisters.
I bet your jaw dropped when you found out she had a twin sister. I know I'd been totally surprised to see and find that out.

Sexy and elegant in her own... I don't wanna say "country" in case of offending her. Traditional? Yeah, traditional sounds good. In a traditional way! lol

I love the ones that come with stories! The way you write about your photography is almost as powerful as your work itself. All your photographs are amazing, but a lot of them have just been coming with song lyrics lately, so I've been story-deprived :P
