Donna

Donna means "beautiful". It's also Italian and means Lady or Noble Lady. You do your name proud, Donna.

The other day I met a young gal - a 14 year old going into 8th grade this year - and was instantly taken by her. Her honest direct approach to life, her vitality and intelligence and her open sweet vibrant beauty (inside and out) that could turn quietly inward in deep thought at a moment's notice completely captured my eye and my heart.

Hesitantly (because we all know the swift and deadly force of a 14 year old's mood changes & the fact they don't like a camera stuck in their face unless they are doing the sticking) I asked her if she'd like to have her pictures taken...no studio, no me posing her...just outdoors using her energy and her imagination. To my surprise and excitement, she loved the idea and said YES! yea!

We had 2 1/2 fantastic hours of running around the countryside, climbing fences & boulders; running, jumping and laying around dry grassy meadows; freezing her little toes off in ice cold mountain creeks; mimicking road kill (beware when you ask a 14 year old to use her imagination) and hanging out in old dirty broken down long forgotten cabins. She was totally into it, I was in hog heaven and had a blast. At the end of the day though, I think we were both dragging...which is a good sign of a perfect day. :-}

So, thank you Donna. You were the perfect model I knew you would be and the awesome 14 year old with active imagination still intact, I hoped you'd be. I enjoyed our day immensely and hope you did too.

I really hope you like how your photos turned out...as much as I do!
