Really like this!
Although I understand your title, it might be good to include the sitters name as well? Just a thought!

Hi Katerina, really enjoying your work. This sounds like an interesting project. and something a bit different for you I think.
Environmental portaits are a particular favourite of mine and this works extremely well.
I love her living room, the pictures on the wall and the tablecloth, matching the wall colour. Her room and contents could well have been the same when she was born!
Well done on a great shot and I am awarding you my very rare and much sought after 'Top Award' for my photo of the week/month!

I voted for but did not leave a comment on this image. I see it has received a well-deserved HC! I shall be watching this series.

I will be watching too. What a great idea and if it works out I think it will be a book to stand the test of time.
