Every now and then you run into a person that genuinely lights up the world. In particular, their world–the one that they personally influence. We just get to step into their world for a moment, and we love them for it. The smiler in this particular photograph was actually not my client. The real client was a small business owner that hired me to shoot bio shots for her website and proposal materials who happened to be sitting right next to the kind heart in this photograph. My actual client was wonderful and her shoot went well, but the warmth and energy flowing out of this other woman made me want to take her picture. So I did. I later on convinced her to do a mini-shoot that lasted about 5 minutes, gifting her the photos. She hated getting her picture taken, and yet she let me do it. I don’t know if she ever did anything with them or if she even liked them…but I sure liked her and hope she keeps bringing her smile to the rest of the world.
