My Debut as Fashion Photographer

I've always fantasized about becoming a famous fashion photographer--kind of like Annie Leibovitz
or Herb Ritts (who I actually knew when I was an undergrad at Bard College.)  Yes, in fact, he actually photographed me giving a poetry reading.
But, I digress....
Really, I love the idea of fashion photography and so, I enlisted the help of my friend's daughter.  Her name is Julianna and she agreed to pose for me.  Isn't she gorgeous?!
She's a sophomore in college, but I can't tell you where because she doesn't want all her fans hounding her while she's trying to study in the college library!
My husband and I live on Waquoit Bay and so it's a perfect spot for photo shoots.  We thought the Wellingtons would be a nice contrast for the red evening gown.  Julianna actually wore this gown to her senior prom.  I provided the "Russian" fur hat.
I think this may be my favorite photo of her.  So ethereal!

Okay, I actually think this is my favorite photo of her.  And the blue feather boa?  
I bought that in Paris during a recent visit.  Tres chic!
 The light was so beautiful that day and really shows off her incredible bone structure.  Such a beautiful girl, and yet, so incredibly intelligent.  She scooped up lots of scholarships during her senior year.
Bravo, Julianna!
