Rebecca {portrait of a gorgeous redhead}

Seriously, I promise it's not a prerequisite to be photogenic to be my client... but these gorgeous women sure make me look good, don't they?

Meet my cousin. Some people say we look alike. I say that's a tragedy for her, but happy happy for me! She has the most gorgeous red hair and is just about the sweetest person I know. She's bound for greatness, this one.

We shot for 15 minutes (or less) at dusk. We shot till we could shoot no more and got some pretty good stuff. I loved experimenting with a few lighting techniques I wanted to try and Rebecca was such a good sport. We are going to go do photo shoots at least once a month, we decided. Why? Because it's so much fun!








I love these two... and I'll definitely try shooting under a streetlight again


ps. I laughed my head off when I saw a box full of Cheez-Its in her handbag. I love to recall the things I shoved in my backpack on the way to 8am class as a freshman. I think I once took a box of cinnamon Life to snack on. We took this one just for fun:

Les,
You are so kind, but YOU put up with ME silly. I think you're forgetting who asked who for the huge favor. You are the greatest cousin on the planet and I sure love ya! P.S. It is a BLESSING that I look like you. I'm so lucky!
