I have known Pat for about a year, but it seems like we're old friends.   As her face emerged from the blank linen canvas, I could hear her voice from conversations we have had...words punctuated with a chuckle here and there...

When I photograph my subjects, I engage them in conversation to evoke an expression that reveals the spirit of the person.  Usually, I prompt them to think of something that makes them happy, or warms their hearts.  Pat thoughtfully voiced a short list aloud (as she is want to do when looking for a solution), until her face lit up with the look you see here.  

It was a blast to put the light next to the dark that created the dimples that so define Pat's face!
