While To Trust in Me got the ball rolling with this two-part photo series and I found that those photos had more impact. This shoot yielded a larger amount of images that I liked. I think it has something to do with the seamless background in this shoot.

To Trust in Me features a student who seeks peace and finds it. The Wavering Faith shoot features a girl, who while living on the streets has had her spirits crushed and wants to restore her faith – be that in a higher power, or in herself. While her faith waivers and is not strong she is surprised to see that through some miracle she has become a magical girl. Yet after the shock has worn off, it is the self doubt from her lot in life that causes her to lack the conviction to embrace this strange new beginning. You can see that by the end of the shoot that she is no better off than at the start despite her transformation.

I gathered my inspiration for the character from this outfit. I imagine it is not meant to look like apparel that might be worn by a street walker, but that is exactly what I saw. So that being the case I ran with it.
