portraits: week 3

Before I take a portrait, I like to sit and think about how I view the person to be photographed.  I like to to try and capture my perspective of that person of film.  I thought about who Audra was to me, for a while.  She is a complex little creature...the kind of complex that is beautiful.  Like an old Hollywood movie star - she has many layers - she has a little bit of mystery in her eyes.  So this is what I tried to capture...her classic beauty.

Audra's expression in this last photo, reminds me of the Andrew Wyeth's painting, "Christina's World."  In the painting, we cannot see the girl's face, but I like to think that this is what she would look like.
