I love photographing friends…I also love becoming friends with those I photograph. Getting to know someone’s natural character is such a pleasure and attempting to capture their identity is an interesting task. Meet Ellen. She is beautiful. No matter who you are, or how long you’ve known her, you feel as though you can trust and confide in her as you would a long time friend and the contagious joy she brings with her is so uplifting. Thanks for letting me photograph you Ellen—It was my pleasure for certain.
