Oleg, who is a buddy of mine from High School, recently asked me to photograph his grandmother for the family’s visual records. It was my pleasure to oblige this request. Though it was a wet and gloomy day here in San Francisco, the gray skies seemed to bring out the colors in the flowers while also allowing for nice skin tones.
I pretty much fell in love with both of them. I hope that they liked the images I got. It’s hard to know because they are so polite. It’s a bit hard being a portrait photographer sometimes, because you want to give people images that they can cherish, and images that make them feel good. However, it’s sometimes impossible to know if you’ve actually accomplished this.
