A successful portrait tells part of a subject’s story in one image. If all goes well it includes emotion, character and some humor. That is what I see in this collage. The girls displayed a special bond that seems to sprout from love, happiness, mirroring and security.
Inspired by the upcoming spring, I present to you Brooklyn whom I photographed recently. She immediately fell in love with the silk flower crown which complimented her lovely dress. This portrait is treasured by her (grand)parents and I believe it will remain on their wall for ever – or until Brooklyn moves away from home and insists on taking it with her. It is a unique documentation of her as a young girl and its emotional value can only increase over time.
