Starting today, I'm going to post a portrait a day!  Some will be new images, some will be from the archives.  I hope they'll serve as inspiration for your own portrait sessions and add a little beauty to your day.

Today's offering is a fine art fashion portrait of Kelli. She is a Glendora hair stylist. I've been thinking about the work of Johannes Vermeer, the classic Dutch 17th Century Painter.  I particularly love his use of light and the gaze of his subjects. Kelli's classic beauty and the softness of her features were perfect for this kind of photography portrait.

I'm having this image framed with a beautiful, classical-looking frame, double-matted with the image floating off the page, and museum glass. It's fine art treatment of a modern photographic portrait and I'm really excited to see it done.
