hope!

Hope is a friend who has been off in California for a while earning her graduate degree. Lucky for me, she is in town for a few days, and wanted some fun portraits for the website she's building. Hope is a "Jane of all trades" with her various talents, but when I first met her years ago, she was choreographing several Atlanta theater productions that I was involved in. She's pretty fabulous that way.

It was another hot afternoon (hotter than we expected), but Hope played effortlessly with the camera, and we shared more giggles than I can count. I also learned a few things...when you shoot in Little 5 Points, you will run into lots of people you know...Hope is even funnier than I remember...and I'm now in love with the combination of brown sweater + yellow pants.

It was such a joy to have some time to hang out with Hope, who I only get to see once in a blue moon. I should go give my camera a little pat for allowing such wonderful things to happen.









Not many people can do this pose, AND look awesome, AND do it in a sassy pair of red high heels.











Could she BE more pretty? This is a rhetorical question...you can't improve on this level of pretty.





It's really not fair that she looks cute in hats too. NOT FAIR!







Of course, we had to get a little goofy at the end...





Thanks so much, Hope! We'll miss you while you're off being smart on the West coast!
