This find senior portrait of a Pasadena teenager features a young woman who I've been photographing since she was nine years old. In fact, when I first photographed her, that image was recognized in an online photo contest. If I'm not mistaken, that was the first award that I ever received for any photograph. And although that award is not as prestigious as the ones that I receive in current competitions, I still remember it as my first. I really enjoy photographing teenagers, finding their personalities, and expressing those through my camera in the images that it creates.
