This is one of my closest friends Maggie Fossum. We were downtown with Bailey (also one of the people featured in my portrait pictures), it was getting really dark but we were having so much fun we went into the graffiti alley. I decided then that I wanted to capture this moment and asked Maggie if I could take a picture with the graffiti in the background. Something that I really loved was capturing her eyes, and that was my focus. You can really see the emotion in her eyes, and I think this goes along with that your eyes are the windows to your soul.
This is a portrait of Madeline Grey, we have really been talking this year, but even so we are close. We hung out over break to actually take pictures for this class. I captured this photo and right as I took it, I had to use it. It really captures her natural beauty, and again it's focused on the eyes. There's also a sort of warmth to the whole picture. The sun is behind her, causing a halo around her head.
