      Hi David. Isn’t she. A kind of an Audrey Hepburn ethereal beauty about her. I had never heard of the photographer before – but I love the softness of her work. The photo emulsion and studied studio light has the translucent effect of oil paint. As for the ‘like’ button – reblogging someone else’s post doesn’t allow for it. Appreciate the comments David.
