My daughter Cathy has been one of my best and most favorite portrait subjects over the years. She is so unaffected and expressive in front of the camera. I put her by her crib; the stance--crossed leg, Mona Lisa smile and pacifier in hand--just happened naturally. A good model makes life so much easier for the photographer.
