The Story Behind the Picture
It was January 2011. I had been shooting seriously as a photographer for just over a year, and Evelyn had been in her third fashion show. She needed more photos for her portfolio and I needed more practice photographing people.
She changed her clothes and grabbed some props and I set up my lights. What followed was our first father/daughter photo session. The session lasted a couple of hours, with her changing clothes multiple times. We were both having a lot of fun and I captured many great shots of Evelyn being Evelyn. The Chanel scarf was her mother’s and became a useful prop in many of the photos.
That day and those that followed were some of the best days of our days together.
