Lisa, you know I am a huge fan, and I truly believe in you. I didn't know you very well in HS, but now that I am getting to know you, I feel like we have very similar hearts. Your work is spectacular, and your enthusiasm is contagious. Every image you create tells a story, capturing the inner-most spirit of your subjects and displaying it so creatively, and yet appearing so natural. Nothing is ever overdone; as a true artist you do just enough to achieve prefection. Congratulations on your successful first 6 months! I feel honored to have been a part of it, and I look forward to many more sessions with you and your talent!
