Natural look

By dudler  
A toss-up between this portrait, a Christmas Day shot from my armchair (of silk flowers), and a portrait shot from the shoot with Angel Price the other week.

I settled for this - Harlie was one of the most natural, and simply beautiful models I've met. We worked together a lot over a couple of years, and then she dropped out of modelling, got married, and started a family.

That's the reality of working with models - they move on. Rather than regretting this, I am grateful to have had the chance to capture a little of their beauty - maybe it is the greater for being transient, in various ways.

As wel las her wonderful looks, Harlie had the advantage of her best gay friend being a hairdresser, so that hse had wonderful, different hair every couple of weeks...

Well - maybe I regret it just a tiny bit that I can't take more pictures of them, especially when they are as lovely as Harlie!

Your title sums up this portrait so very well John. Beautiful indeed and so very well captured with warming light.

Your armchair is made of silk flowers??????? ..... how posh are you!

I am not sure about the slightly blue halo in her hair - I might be tempted to crop it slightly to lose that.
