Shareese is one of those people who I've come across in life and felt like we were friends long before we met. I know that sounds kind of cheesy, but its true. She has the most open and inviting spirit, and she is so genuine and wonderful. Everyone who knows her would agree with me, I'm certain! I've had the pleasure of sharing many heart-to-hearts, hugs, and laughs with her. I don't get to spend quality time with her very often, but when I do, I feel that all is right with the world.
I took a quick headshot of her our first year here, in a few minutes and with little planning. That was before I really had spent more time thinking about photographing people. And once I had learned more and bought a portrait lens, I was so excited when she asked me to take her real headshots last spring.
Shareese, where do I really begin? When I think of you, I see a tower of strength. You are inspiring. You are an old soul. You radiate feminine power. When you come into a room, sunshine and joy come with you. These are not just words. These are truths. It was an honor to photograph you. It is an honor to be your friend.
