One Roll Project – Desert Portrait Photography – Alyson

Alyson is another friend I met through roller derby who volunteered for the One Roll Project. We decided to do some portraits in a cool little cactus garden that’s a desert oasis in the middle of Beverly Hills. The sunset light was gorgeous and Alyson was a great model!
