Black and White Portrait Session

This beautiful black and white session is so special to me, because the young lady in those pictures is my 17 year old niece, Ola. She came to visit us for the summer all the way from Poland. Having her with us for extended period of time allowed me to take time to prepare for a few photo shoots. Yes, a few! I had to take advantage of having a personal model in the house and capturing as much of her a I can, because I know her parents will appreciate having these pictures.
