Jessa withholding time by JeanPhilippeMartin Jessa withholding time by JeanPhilippeMartin
Model: Jessa

I wanted to photograph Jessa's beautiful face for the longest time, so long that I had given up shooting with her.
Jessa often shoots with my good friend and super talented artist Jaime Ibarra. That day she had come to visit Jaime, and they were stepping out to the back porch to talk and have a cigarette.
As she was stepping out, I asked her if she would give me two minutes to take a quick snap and she agreed yet reminding me that she had no make-up on.
When I do portrait, I love to remind the subject how the frame is freezing time. I like that feel in their eyes, eternal and almost absent.
Rarely we talk about shooting together. I love the idea of capturing Jessa in an impromptu moment. Like she was stolen for an instant.

Location my home Austin, TX

I'm a big fan of her work and Jamie's, his gallery is how I found yours (it's a small world even on the internet). This girl's sense of self is all the makeup she needs. And like all your other's I love this back story, the last sentance says it all.

I love your idea of the picture.

The pic of Jessa reminds me on a sentence I read once ago, i think here on da,too:

A girl without freckles is like a night without stars

She is absolutely stunning. I'm a sucker for freckles and you captured them beautifully.
