Moss, like a rolling stone

A while back I donated a portrait session to the Johnson Intern Program, the organization for which my mom is Director. It was time for the annual Year End Dinner, and my session was part of a silent auction.

The high bidder asked me to do a portrait of her daughter, Moss, who was college-bound. On the day I photographed her in her grandparents' garden in Creedmor, she was less than 24 hour away from embarking on her journey to Carnegie-Mellon, where she plans to study Dramaturgy.

Moss is simultaneously poised and relaxed, at home with herself and amongst others. In between shots, she would dart inside to prepare dinner for her family. I wish her so much luck — not that she'll need it — in college and beyond.
