Michigan Modeling Photography by Mary DuPrie Because I seem to shoot a lot of it! I haven’t shot Lindsey in forever, at least two years.  Lindsey is one of the best commercial models working in Detroit.  She needs absolutely no coercing to give me different looks.  I love it when a model looks off camera […]
