I had recently painted some new backdrops to add a little more variety to my indoor portrait sessions. The day these ladies came over, we had rain, we had sleet, we had snow. But they braved the winter-that-didn't-want-to-end weather, and thankfully the sky got just bright enough as we started shooting that we had good light. It's always an honor when people come for portraits. I know it's not always easy to be in front of the camera, and I have the utmost respect for those that go ahead and let me pose and photograph them. My goal, always, is to produce good photographs of people, pure and simple.
