Perfection Skyy!
The crop is perfect for uniqueness and the summertime looks are fabulous! A beautiful, beautiful model, she makes your work look flawless, you two are a perfect combination!
I have a granddaughter that I love to photograph. I have a few of her images in my Gallery, I'd love to get your take on them, if you have the time!

Thank you, everyone. Due to the economy I've had to close my studio & sell all my equipment. I don't see myself doing photography any time in the future.

I was shocked when I read your bio and your note that you are closing down your studio and not doing photography anymore. Your work is so good; it's a shame to see it stop. But I can imagine what the economy is doing to artists in all mediums. Anyway, congratulations on a stunning finalist, and good luck with whatever other avenues you choose!

I really appreciate this, everyone. I'd love to thank you all personally but I'm in the middle of moving & still really traumatized from losing my business. Your support means the world to me.
