For this portrait, I photographed my friends mom. Her name is Zanda and she is the matriarch of the Hudson family. She was kind enough to let us do a photo shoot in her home, but I don't think she realized what she was getting into when she said yes. To compensate for her time, I made a portrait of her with her son, as well as a portrait of herself. She wasn't expecting to be in the shots, so her hair was a bit disheveled, but I love that, it looks more natural, and I relate because my hair is always messy. I used a shoot thru umbrella for the soft effect, and a bounce card on the left side, as well as a silver reflector below to make her eyes sparkle a little more.
