For the second part of my portrait session with contest winner Heather, we wanted to play around with the fight aspect of her "Fight or Flight" theme. As luck would have it, we had a (toy) sword kicking around. The light that day was a special kind of overcast, soft yet directional, and I love the way it lit her lovely face. Heather, congratulations on winning. Your concept was really strong and so much fun to execute. Now I'm counting down the days (24!) until your wedding!
