Gunther Allen February 10, 2004

Thank you Paul, Jeff, Alisha, Murry, Colleen, Kristen, Karen, Terry, and Robin. Although it does look like sepia tone- it was the setting sun, clothes, and the background that all seemed to blend into the sepia tones. I will post several other shots that we took during the photo session yesterday. When you have a great model - it makes everything come together much easier! -G #371012
