Although I believe there is nothing as romantic as a grainy black and white, I still have such a love for color. Especially with my love for the sun and the way a sun ray can illuminate an entire photo with the most brilliant colors. I do respect black + white and see a need for it, but this photo shoot is why I will never be able to devote my entire photography to black and white the way my dad has.
Catie, you are one of the most beautiful Native American women I have ever encountered. It was such an honor + moving experience to photograph you in all of your meaningful relics you have had since you were a babe. I will never get tired of photographing you!
