I was doing a photoshoot for a commissioned portrait at my client's family lake house and had taken hundreds of photos, although there were none that I felt were right for the portrait. As i was going through the photos one last time, Laurily, my client's neighbor, showed up in the background. I was so inspired by her expressiveness and vulnerability I ended up doing Laurily's portrait as a personal project.

Judge's Comment: "Heart and soul are palpable viewing this lovely portrait of a young child, her intent gaze amplified by complimentary hues and soft tones in a stylistic framework reminiscent of Renaissance painters. The attention to edges, whether defined or soft, controls our sense of focus and dimension, and invites the mind to ponder further."
