"i loved his photos: the moody exposition, the thoughtfulness and care of props, costumes, hair, hands, legs. the women in his photos looked incredible: sexy and happy, loving and playful. they looked like their best selves. when i asked alex to do some photos with him, i truly didn’t think i would go through with it. but after talking to him about what i had in mind, and his own ideas for the shoot, i couldn’t not do it. he is so inspiring, so easy to get on with.
i told him how much i love americana and we immediately pictured american flags, cowboy boots, denim shorts, rollerskates, blue, red and white. at one point alex turned into my therapist, after i told him how much i hated my stomach and thighs and all my wobbly bits. but he was kind. always supportive. i never thought in a million years would do this – ever. but he was great. we ended up shooting for hours and after rearranging all the furniture in my house (and a pub lunch) i felt on top of the world. look how sexy i am! i can be sexy! alex had caught all my good angles – he knows what to do, how women like to look and feel.
when i look back at the photos i can still see myself being a little shy, not fully giving myself up – though at certain points i definitely do. he’s a wonderful man with a kind heart and the most creative and inspiring eye."
