This is Emily. She is one of my clients AND she is a great friend - a nice combination. She is super cute too, which you would never know from this portrait, but I think this captures her well - her adventurous spirit, love of Maine, ability to position herself in just the right place, an anchor in the community, and a loving mother to her children. All of this under an artfully woven braid of fiery red hair.
