I was standing outside of my local Target when I saw her and her son walking up. I was first drawn to her hat but then her eyes quickly grabbed my focus. There is a hidden strength beneath them.
I approached her and chatted a bit about my project, she agreed but first wanted to apply some lip gloss. I loved this little detail!
Her little boy was adorable and said that he wanted a camera like mine. Who knows, I may have just met a future famous photographer. :)
I was standing in line at the post office with my husband, preparing to ship off his motorcycle leathers to be repaired and I spotted her.
A woman standing in front of us, when we made eye contact she smiled. I knew that I wanted to approach her about being #4. Her aura seemed to full of light and kindness, a generous and friendly person. I walked outside (since I prefer natural light) and waited for her to walk out.
She had a box in her hands so I almost didn't ask her but I felt compelled. Her response was "sure," and after removing her sunglasses she let me take this portrait.
I love that she couldn't help but smile.
