Portrait of a girl on her way to being a woman.
A very special thank you to a great team of people who helped make this shot possible. Kim, Amber, Scot, Syed, & Zach. Everyone came together for a really great time, and a great learning experience. This is actually something we threw together after doing our first shoot, which was conceptual. We had some time left over, and an amazing crew, so we decided to do a "beauty shoot". We tried a few different ideas, and wound up grabbing my house plant and covering Amber with it. We also had a fan blowing on her to give her hair some movement, and somewhere between all of that and her contacts, her eyes started watering up. No one could really see that she was crying, and she didn't say anything, because she was being so professional as a model. I only noticed her tear when going through the images afterwords. Something like that, had to be paid attention to. Beauty and Sadness.
