Here is Miss Rachel, I photographed her in August 2002, on Monday and many times in between. She has never lived in Newton or even in Iowa but her momma includes me in their Newton plans ; ) I have watched her grow and I know her expressions. I know her speech pattern and the texture of her skin. I know how her eyes sparkle and I know when she is done with me. I know that she has turned from little girl to someone with a grace and elegance that her daddy is afraid of (he should be). I have more stories like Rachel’s, really I’m just so lucky.
Enough of this sappy stuff….I’m off to shoot in Baxter and have deliveries and clients meeting me for pickups while I’m there. I love it!
