I am resubmitting this after fixing a brown smudge at the top. Thank you, Emily!!!

I laugh at myself whenever I call these sessions "urban." I live in an itty bitty town in northern New Hampshire with a downtown so small it doesn't even have a traffic light until you get to the very end! Anyway, this is Littleton, NH's version of urban!

Well Allison this is an absolutely fabulous portrait. She is so beautiful and the setting is so much nicer than the standard backdrops. Very well done. #5034544

member since: 12/31/2002 I love the lighting in this - her skin really glows. Can you explain how you achieved that effect?
