A couple of weeks ago when I was down in Victoria I had the privilege of shooting a good friend of mine – Kelly (she’s second from the right in the above photo). I first met Kel about 10 years ago when I started to go down to the Port Fairy folk festival where we would join in with others to sing and laugh the weekend away. Since then, we’ve both grown a little wiser and in equal measure sillier, added more children to our respective broods and embraced the twists and turns of life. I’ve seen her gorgeous girls become more beautiful with each passing year and enjoyed listening to her sing and shake the tambourine like a dynamo. Really, I can’t thank her enough for kindly accepting my invitation to drop in and take some photo’s so I could build my portrait portfolio.
For tonights post, I’ve chosen to feature Kelly’s youngest daughter Lily. What a wonderful young lady! Not long after arriving, I stepped outside to scout out some places which might offer a good backdrop for our photo’s. Lily came out and not only helped me get some exposure and meter readings, she started suggesting and demonstrating a variety of posing options! She was such a charmer – thoughtful and creative. Kelly, you must be so proud! I know I was impressed. So, without further adieu; here’s Lily.

Above: I asked if Lily had a favourite teddy bear or stuffed animal. The words had barely left my mouth before she had run off and retrieved this little guy. Its one of my favourite shots in this series.
