I just need to get this out and hopefully it will ease my nerves.
I’m doing a little calendar this summer and the photographer shooting it has grown to be a friend of ours. He called me this morning and asked if I’d be available to shoot a couple of promo shots tonight. I said “yes” and he told us what time to be there. Before hanging up, he mentioned something about needing to call “one of the models going” and I stopped him. Other models? Like for the calendar?
He goes on to tell me that the shoot tonight is actually set up for 6 professional models and he just thought the set up would look good for his project with the calendar as well, so he called me. He’s just having me tag along to snap a couple of shots while he and the other photographers work with the models.
…and I’m terrified. I recognized a couple of the names I’ve heard around the MUA circuit he mentioned, and these guys and girls are no amateurs. These are signed, tall, stunning professional models, and they’re all going to see my foot-shorter, pear-shaped ass in a swimsuit. And so will my boyfriend.
So, I’m scared to meet these people. I’m scared for them to see me get my pictures taken. I’m scared to have my boyfriend see me get my pictures taken. And, it’s on a massive boat and I’m scared of water 😡
I feel like I’m going to puke.
