Portrait #8: Claire

 OK, so I'm cheating a lot by using my own kids but frankly I've either been slogging away on images from a recent trip to California or spending time with my kids. This project still has me thinking a lot about capturing more spontaneous portraits and has me carrying my camera around at all times again. It's easy, once I'm in the throws of a busy working period, to put the camera down and only touch it for work. It's been great looking out for photos just for the fun and practice of it.
 This is my daughter Claire. I was driving her to a Halloween event, the night before, and she was touching up her "make up", just like any twenty one year old six year old, in the mirror on the visor . I noticed the cool lighting and made her "pose" quickly before we got out!
