40. This was one of my favorite projects. Linda came to me and said something along the lines of: “My daughter is transitioning out of being an adolescent, and she’s becoming a women. She’s got this look that just strikes me sometime. It’s all hers, it’s sassy, it’s something that I never want to forget. I want to capture her as she is now so that she has an heirloom of herself that she’ll cherish in fifty years”. She sent me some images of classic, old Hollywood starlets to help define the posing and lighting styles. Then she and her daughter went vintage shopping, and found both a dress and a frame to hold the final image for all time. Seriously, collaborating with a client on a creative, important project such as this – man, what a treat.
