This week I delivered two portraits to a gorgeous home in Knoxville,TN. One was of a wonderfully precocious boy who divides his time between Knoxville and Asheville, NC. The second was of his two beautiful cousins sitting on rocks surrounded by hydrangeas. I
wasn't able to photograph Aaron in the same setting as his cousins, but I was inspired by a portrait hanging in Biltmore in Asheville of the landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted painted by John Singer Sargent.
When possible, a final sitting is wonderful for checking eye color and making any necessary minor adjustments. And it's always fun to see my portrait subjects again! Little M.C. put her own little brush strokes on her rock!
