  Thanks Beverly and all the others....I have to say, it is because of my one year course and support of my "classmate" that I consider "friends" is the reason this photo EVER happened....thanks again, to you all!

  Thank you everyone for the comments! The most humbling note about this photo...I forgot about it until recently, I was going through my photos organizing them as I was searching for pictures for my daughter's bridal shower. I found this print and it reminded me how proud I was when I captured this image. I have learned so much about lighting. I love photography and want to continue to grow in this field! Happy day!
