MaryKate radiates the same perfect, earthy loveliness as the summer's day we met her atop a Connecticut dam. It was actually our very first shoot that included a storyline, and it was she and her fellow model Garye who made that expressive shoot possible! MaryKate is a total natural in front of the camera, with that indispensable ability to communicate through the lens. We love love love her aptitude for embracing and running with the story of a shoot. She could easily be a gypsy beauty, traversing mystical forests in a caravan of troubadours, or a disillusioned schoolgirl in search of an adventure, taking an enchanted shortcut home. MaryKate's beautiful soul shines in her photos!

 FIRST SHOOT: Bandit runaways atop a woodland dam! May 2010

SECOND SHOOT: Rebellious schoolgirls transformed into free-spirited, chandelier-eyed nymphs!

20 Questions with MaryKate
