mila | portraits . mark

ok... first i introduced alicia. now i'm introducing her brother. this is mark.

mark is in his first year of college in berkeley taking computer science. smart right?! it gets better... he's spending this whole summer working as a programmer full time! double wow?! AND... he's ridiculously good at ping pong just like his sister! aaaaaannnd... he builds computers for fun! enough?

so both kids are intelligent and adept at sports. it must be in the genes. but if you ask either of them they would tell you that they are complete opposites of each other. makes me smile. my sister and i feel the same way.

so a couple of things i learned from this shoot....

1. i like parking lots!
2. i need to spend time checking out GQ magazine (like i spend time on vogue). posing boys just isn't the same as posing girls. any volunteers for the next shoot?


  1. These are great Michelle! I love shooting there too.

  2. me too.. i have trouble posing guys! lol!
