You know the expression, "The camera loves her?" I didn't believe that was true until I met Beth Anne.
Unbeknownst to her, I snapped her in a casual shot while I was photographing a church youth group trip to Washington DC. My intent was just to capture as many of the group as possible with a few candids. As I scanned through my pictures, I did a double-take--oh my goodness--who is that beautiful girl?! I must photograph her!
When Beth Anne is in front of the camera, there is the most amazing transformation. In "real life" she is quiet and somewhat reserved--a brilliant girl studying linguistics at the University of Tennessee. But when she's photographed she is simply stunning and both her beauty and intelligence just radiates. I hope this is the first of many of our sessions together!
