I saw her walking from a distance in very casual shirt, shorts, and flip flops. She had no make up on, but I knew she was going to make a great portrait with her light and subtle, almost angelic features. When I asked her if I could take her picture, she hesitated a bit. She seemed concerned that she was not all made up. I was lucky she said yes. The moment she posed for the camera, I knew immediately that she was a natural.

    Yes, that is a deep look that you captured again. The bokeh again is perfect with all these considerations you have taken into account. Great and brave! Thanks again.
