Classic Style

I had such a wonderful time photographing my friend Kathy and her beautiful daughter Rachel.  We laughed throughout the session and, since they brought white blouses, I tried to recreate the feeling of a classic high key portrait style I have always liked.

I love the result and it reminds me of a photograph my mother had taken when she became engaged in 1946 - by Bradford Bachrach, of the famous Bachrach Studios in New York.

I think black and white portraits are still some of the most compelling photographs to look at and retain their universal appeal in the age of instant access photography.
