JD Avila ladies and gentlemen - the guy who's hair inspired this whole thing...
It is rare you come across curls like these... his curls have curls, in fact I almost called this post Lion King cause of that mane.
I have been so excited for this shoot, it has been a while coming...For those of you that didn't see my earlier post, JD has been in the process of recovering from a brutal motorcycle accident that occurred just a few weeks ago. His heart, perseverance, and vision throughout the experience has been more than inspiring to all that have walked beside him through it.
This shoot is a special one for me, not only is he a dear friend that has gone through so much, but my roommate as well - and it is just this next week that we will be parting ways as I move to Los Angeles.
I am so proud of this guy and am privileged to add his mane to the project.
Ook ok so before I go any further...the cigarette was for effect only, JD or I are not encouraging the use of cigarettes, so as you enjoy this next B&W set - keep that in mind;)
Gotta give a shout out to my assistant Sarah Spence for the shoot as well, thanks for letting me order you around:)
