87 texts? 30 messages? I'm hoping that is exaggeration.

Even if she shows, I'd be worried she's crazy...as that is just TOO much. big_smile

Imagine what'll happen while she waits for images back. ~shudder~

Wow...and you didn't mind getting, and having to read, over a hundred messages in a single day? I think of that and am so very thankful I have neither a cell phone or a facebook port.

I used to think that I bothered photogs with over-calling/over-texting.

I've been trying to do it less and hide the excitement.
Trying.

I think that only a person whom is not properly mentally balanced would do that.
It's not enthusiasm, it's psychotic!

I certainly wouldn't be impressed if she were to send me that many texts, I have better things to do than read all that be I sitting on my backside or working.
She may be a lovely girl,  but come on, that's not the actions of a totally sane person.

If she sent you that in one day, how many has she sent in total so far since you organised the shoot?
Assuming she slept for 8 hours and we are talking about a 24 hr day, she's sending you a message every 10 min. 
Wow! I think I'd be scared.

She must be a hell of a handful when shooting with her.

One of the most pleasant people I have ever shot with.

In the hour when I was chatting with her, we went over details, it's not hard to knock through a couple dozen messages, back and forth a dozen a minute isn't a biggie..

Yeah but, that level of texting would worry me for potential mania. wink Then again, I am an overwordy, stutter texter with free flying thoughts too. Just saying.

I'm communicating with a model now with a planned shoot, she barely says anything.  If my past experience is any guide, it won't go well but decided to give her the benefit of the doubt.  I think the reverse is more true. Thankfully my other planned shoot is going wonderfully in terms of communication, seems we're both enthusiastic.

Based on those excitement levels, I'm left wondering if you are the only photographer on the planet that will shoot with her, or the only photographer she likes.

sounds like you already have an established working relationship with her, so chances are, she would show and not flake...

i think most of the complaints on MM are in situations of first time shoots...

I have one model I been in communication with via messages, emails, phone, and text, she is wanting to shoot and constantly I hear "I can't wait to shoot !!!!" and then when I have an open slot or even juggle around my schedule, it's always an excuse (at least 5 different ones so far...) and she puts it off ? after a while you kinda lose interest in shooting with the model, as you figure the next excuse is waiting to come out ?
