    In the early spring, I invited my sister Mackenzie (pictured) to join me and my husband on a camping trip to Shenandoah National Park. We woke up before dawn and climbed up and over boulders to the summit of Bearfence Mountain. The wind was harsh and cold, but the beauty of its wild movement complemented not only our eccentric artisan hearts, but life's perfect symmetry. It's in these moments, that I feel most alive.

    This is such a nice portrait. I love how the mood just feels so calm and I feel you captured that well. The hair blowing in the wind covers up just part of her face and leaves some mystery to the frame. This was an excellent moment in time to capture with a photograph. Nice work.
