I just love photographing pre-teens. This darl'in is the daughter of my best friend...which makes me her "Aunt". She is just as sweet as she is beautiful. This session was booked for a modeling portfolio....and was the first time Grace was in front of the camera. Quite a natural, don't you think? I added some enhancements to jazz up the image and quite like the effect. Would love to know your thoughts.
Anecdote & Quote of the WEEK:
My father was an great source of inspiration to me. A quiet man, with many talents. He seemed to have an jest for learning, and the things he was passionate about, he did really, really well. In our last days together I asked him his thoughts on the goal of life. He simply answered....
"to have no regrets... Life is short....Pursue your passion with ENDLESS determination". Several weeks later he passed away. That same year, I enrolled to study photography. How rich and rewarding the journey has been.

The perfect image? I didn't think so. As a matter of fact, I did not initially present this image as a viable selection to the mother. But somehow, during the preview, it came up on the screen. The mom gasped...she LOVED the light, and the curious way about her child. What could I say? In silent reluctance I worked the image, and this is what resulted. I am reminded that through deep love and admiration, parents are able to see things in their child that sometimes others don't. I trusted her that there was something special in this image. She was right. Her heart told her so.
