Gorgeous Youth and a Grumpy Old Man

Ah, the confidence of Youth! Only 13, but for all the world, acting like proper young ladies. Two best buddy cousins, in a studio for a couple of hours. Whack up the soft box, snap on the beauty dish, and hey presto, some photos to warm the heart of a grumpy old man (as in the last photo – that’s me)…

Bloody hell, no wonder she was giving me the look. Amateur. Never mind, I will get better with practice. (I hopeā€¦.). Forget these, and check out a master, here.
