Dr Mary Flowers for Consumer Reports

I keep on meaning to blog this portrait I made for Consumer Reports. This is another shot I'm really happy with not only because of the portrait that came out of it, but for the circumstances around the shoot. I really enjoy going into sessions blind, which is to say, without much / any knowledge of the subject or environment. I knew the bare bones of Dr. Flowers' story but had no idea what she looked like nor where we'd be shooting (which turned out to be her sister's house during a rain storm). I don't know why I enjoy doing that so much, but I do know that it makes a successful portrait that much more satisfying.
