Today is the birthday of an amazing young woman who used to be my patient back in the day. She is now a fully grown sista with education and skills that do my heart proud.
Just a few minutes ago I was checking in on my Facebook stream before packing it in on a night of editing and order prep. There I noticed that Joia had just posted a cell phone photo of herself that was so awesome that the minute I saw it, I had to play and then share with her. (And she gave me permission to share it here as well!)
Here’s the original:
As we can see, the image is gorgeous despite the too cool white balance and low res quality. So I went to work.
Oh my goodness, I have got to get Joia in front of my real camera! She is stunning, indeed.
