PORTRAITS : Caroline at The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City


The sun had already started to set. We hadn’t eaten dinner and were hot and tired from a full day of shooting and classes. But, somehow, we rallied ourselves. I was speechless as I glanced at the back of my camera and was in a state of thrilling disbelief. Disbelief of how with such ease Caroline held those difficult positions and how my camera was seeing it all. Timeless beauty. Magnificent architecture. The sun perfectly situated in the sky. Cherry blossoms scenting the hot breeze. Caroline’s hard work revealing the pure elegance this art demands…

Isn’t she just so, so lovely? I seriously feel so privileged to have such talented friends. Feel free to lavish some love her way! Also, prior to this shoot, I accompanied Caroline throughout the day for an entirely different photography project. I cannot wait to share that and a more personal peek into this sweet friend’s life! And to Caroline, thank you!!! You are wonderful.
