After a weekend of storms and a mostly gloomy week, we finally have a beautiful, sunny day. So here's a portrait of Ella, which I did for a Christmas present. This is a different pose; my client did not have any usable photos of her face. Flash photos just won't work. The flash blows out all the shadows and of course ruins the natural color of their eyes, just FYI. Anyway, we decided on this pose for her portrait, and it's very interesting to see her body and movement. I don't normally do that, preferring to just do a bust portrait. But she turned out well, and my client was pleased. While it's too late to have a portrait for Mother's Day, I do sell gift certificates, so contact me if you would like one of those, or just order a portrait and I'll send you an electronic gift certificate. Thanks, enjoy, stay well.
