Jason very much tried to push me out of my comfort zone with these pictures. Luckily, it was a weekday afternoon, so not many people were around! He gave me many different pose ideas, many of which consisted of some sort of action. Again, I was impressed. He told me to stick my arms out (as seen above) and he also kept telling me to be sassy.

Do you smell that? I smell it. Breathe deeper. It’s the sweet smell of a series, y’all. (I never use the word y’all, but it seemed like the most appropriate right now alright?)
