Isn’t she beautiful? I love love love doing head shots. It gives me the opportunity to connect with a person one on one in a very real and sensitive way. Each and every time I photograph someone in this way, something wonderful is revealed to me. It takes a little time, as we all get a little nervous when a lens is pointed at us, and we feel vulnerable…. but there is a moment in the session when the person being photographed relaxes, and their true beauty shines. It happens every time. I can pretty much throw away the first images from any session… the good stuff is always at the end. Mai was no exception. I love her natural smile, her gentleness of being… with a little touch of spark. She is beautifully unique, and was such a treasure to photograph. Thank you, Mai, for your trust in me. You shine.
