Every session, I like to make it enjoyable for everyone, having fun shows in the final images even if they're not smiling. Some don't like to smile, some don't like to look serious (it makes them look mad), but to find a happy balance and capture a personality will make for beautiful variety in portraiture. With Larra Donaldson's Black Label portraits, I captured her confidence and fun mood. A photograph of confidence is different from one of just looking mad, it's in the eyes. It will be a constant reminder to the subject of what is inside her/him and, hopefully, give them inspiration and motivation that they can accomplish their goals and conquer their fears. Isn't that what we all want?
