Trisha has one of the best faces to shoot. Easy for make-up. Great to light. Easy to use dramatic light on. It also helped that I have been watching her grow since she was a baby and I know her face well. I enjoyed creating a timeless portrait with her personality being the focus of the shot. I really love creating classic looks. It will be hard to tell in what decade this photo was taken and that was the point.

My Favorite Sayings
