Sleepy by Cathleen Tarawhiti

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

I’m not too keen on taking straight-on portraits as they can appear cross-eyed (as this does in the thumbnail), but I couldn’t leave this sleeping on my hard drive :)

Model - Luna
To see more of Luna, you are most welcome to visit my Facebook page
or watch the telly (in New Zealand); she’s the new Nurofen/Lara Croft girl.
