To me, the best kind of portraits are the ones taken in a place that has meaning for the individual. Not just a place that they like or one that's pretty. But one that they LOVE; a place that gives them comfort, peace and the freedom to be exactly who they are. For my dear friend, Jessa, that place is right here - next to that wall-size print of people she's never met, but feels deeply connected to. It's her most prized possession. Originally, we had planned to do her session outside in her backyard. But, I'm so thankful we got rained out, because it forced us in here - her happy place. And honestly, I couldn't have asked for anything better.
It's unexpected moments like this that are always the best.
