Sometimes you have the opportunity of meeting people that make you reflect about your own life, to even make you change. May it be a person dealing with struggles in a powerful way or someone whose presence fills the room and becomes contagious. This last person is Katie. You can always find Katie with big smile on her face, she transmits this happiness to everyone around her, and this is a very rare virtue that I hope people around her appreciate. During her session, I asked her to look at the camera without smiling, I always like to try new things and there was a look I wanted to try with her. I had to discard those pictures of her, that was not Katie. As a photographer it is very easy to conduct a shoot in a way that benefits you artistically or that makes your life easier, often forgetting to portrait the essence of your subject. I hope this is you, Katie.
